Los Amantes (The Lovers) ran into censorship problems in Mexico because one of the minor characters is a prostitute, played (believe it or not) by an actress named Cleopatra Walkup! The bulk of the story concerns hero Carlos Baena, who can't make up his mind between his virtuous fiancee Sonia Furio and his sexier paramour Yolanda Varela. He opts for the latter, moving in with the girl and her mother (Elisa De Leon). Eventually, however, Baena realizes that Varela's fast-and-loose lifestyle is not for him. The American distribution of Los Amantes was hampered as much by the picture's substandard technical quality as by its "racy" theme.
