Synopsis by Hal Erickson
La Casa Chica is a sad little tale about two sad little people. Dolores Del Rio, still dazzlingly beautiful at 45, stars as Amalia Estrado, an intern at the National University medical school in Mexico City. Amalia becomes the assistant to a research scientist (Roberto Canedo), who is engaged to marry wealthy social lioness Lucila del Castillo (Miroslava Stern). Be that as it may, Amalia and the scientist fall in love, but fate, that cruel jester, is against them from the start. In the honored Hollywood tradition, La Casa Chica shows the audience that adultery is bad but fun while it lasts.
