A young inexperienced hostess, exploited by a jealous and cynical pimp, falls in love with a young and shy provincial man.
This documentary-like film was directed by Best Maugard, a famous painter who designed the cabaret walls himself. Shot in 1937 on location in Mexico City with non- professional actors, The Bloodstain was censored for almost 50 years because of a striptease scene considered too bold. It is one of the most highly sought-for Mexican films.
A print was found and restored, although the sixth reel is silent and images are missing at the end of the film.
