The finest film in the series is In the Palm of Your Hand, an entrancingly sensuous drama of deception, seduction, and murder. Director Roberto Gavaldón wrote the velvety, ambiguous script with his frequent partner José Revueltas. Its pulp poetry is salted with wit; the macabre hilarity of a scene where an adulterous couple gets a flat tire while transporting a corpse in their trunk is worthy of Hitchcock.
