¡Asegure a su mujer! (Insure Your Wife!) (U.S., 1935)
An insurance salesman has a hot idea to sell policies to protect husbands from infidelity. Everything goes swimmingly for him until the return of a former lover whose husband has placed a policy on her. Based on an Argentine play, the film could be mistaken for a Hollywood screwball comedy.
35mm, b/w, 83 min. Director: Lewis Seiler. Cast: Raúl Roulien, Conchita Montenegro, Antonio Moreno, Mona Maris, Luis Alberni, Carlos Villarías.
Nada más que una mujer (U.S., 1934)

35mm, b/w, 81 min. Director: Harry Lachman. Cast: Berta Singerman, Alfredo del Diestro, Juan Torena, Luana Alcañiz, Lucio Villegas.
