This is an early film from Director Gilberto Martinez Solares, who would go on to become better-known for his unique perspective on horror films of the 60's and 70's - like "Santanico Pademonium" "Face of the Screaming Wolf" and his own "House of Terror", (these features, in turn, would inspire future award-wining Directors such as Tarantino and Del Toro). As far as Resurreccion goes, it is a semi-historical Drama, based on Leo Tolstoy's novel also titled "Resurrection" . However, Solares' movie loosely uses the start of the 1910 to 1920 Mexican Revolution as its cornerstone, (instead of the Russian battle that Tolstoy relied on for his 1899 literary work ). It essentially documents one man's effort to find redemption for his past sins. It stars actors Emilio Tuero, Lupita Tovar, Sara Garcia and Jose Pulido, among others.

In the early days of sound, it was common for Hollywood studios to produce Hollywood foreign-language versions of their films (usually in French, Spanish and German) using the same sets, costumes and etc. Unfortunately, most of these foreign language versions no longer exist. The Spanish version of Dracula is an exception. In recent years this version has become more highly praised by some than the English language version. The Spanish crew had the advantage of watching the dailies from the English crew's version when they came in for the evening and they would figure out better camera angles and more effective use of lighting in an attempt to "top" it. As a result, this version's supporters consider it to be much more artistically effective.
