In the Palm of Your Hand
(En la palma de tu mano)
Arturo de Córdova, Leticia Palma, Ramón Gay, Consuelo Guerrero de Luna,
A con artist with dreams of grandeur finds himself overmatched by a murderous widow in this Arturo de Córdova–starring noir, which again finds our hero abandoning everything for a taste of passion, and death. Busy shaking down the lonely rich with a mix of fortune-telling and blackmail (“Karin doesn’t accept checks! Only cash!!”), our hero is soon lured unblinkingly into the poison-laden lair of a beautiful “widow of her own volition.” “You and I are written in our destinies,” these lovers croon, as their mutual ambition—and lack of morality—leads to a finale set not at the chapel, but the morgue.
