After the success of the film A Family Like Many Others (1948), the filmmaker Alejandro Galindo and the actor David Silva had, separately, a tight work agenda. This somehow prevented that David starred Los dineros del diablo, a slum thriller that was finished starred by Roberto Cañedo and Victor Parra in the role of the villain.[1]
