Las Dos Huefanas is a Mexican filmization of that hoary old stage barnstormer The Two Orphans. This venerable theatrical property was most memorably filmed by D. W. Griffith as Orphans of the Storm in 1921. Griffith was enough of a showman to pep up the proceedings by throwing in the French Revolution as a plot device. This Mexican version sticks more closely to the original, which concerns two sisters who are cruelly separated at the beginning of the story and tearfully reunited at the end. The best performance is delivered by comedienne Anita Blach, cast as the blind sister who is forced into a life of beggary.
