The 89-minute film was shot in black and white for Argentina Sono Film, directed by Enrique Santos Discépolo. It was the first film for which he was sole director. It starred Pepe Arias, María Esther Buschiazzo and Chela Cordero. Mario Maurano wrote the music.
The writers, Manuel A. Meaños, Enrique Santos and Marcelo Menasche Discépolo, based the film on a strange story that circulated in Buenos Aires around 1940. It told of an apparition in the form of a beautiful and enigmatic girl (Buschiazzo) who danced one night with the cashier (Arias) of a large commercial firm. She apparently had returned from the beyond, and would again fade into the shadows.
The film has been called one of the most original and compelling films of the trajectory of the great comedian, Pepe Arias.
