Hollywood-trained John Reinhardt handled the direction of the Argentine crime drama Ultimo Refugio (The Last Refuge). Top-billed Mecha Ortiz plays a "loose woman" who teams up with young crook Jorge Rigaud. Ortiz throws over her doctor lover (Pedro Lagar) to join Rigaud in his flight from justice, only to desert the boy when he runs out of money. In desperation, Rigaud attempts suicide, but is saved from himself at the last minute by the self-same jilted doctor. At the time of its release, Ultimo Refugio was praised for its offbeat decision to cast film favorite Mecha Ortiz in an unsympathetic role.
