Enrique Tovar Ávalos was a Mexican film director often charged with directing the Spanish versions of American films. This was a common practice in the early days of "talkie" cinema where most films were simultaneously remade with a foreign cast and sometimes even a foreign production crew. Enrique's first professional film work was a 1918 short called Altavismo which Ávalos wrote, directed and produced. In 1930, he co-directed the Spanish version of The Cat Creeps along with George Melford, which was retitled La voluntad del muerto. In 1931, he collaborated with Melford again on the Spanish version of Universal Pictures' Drácula starring Carlos Villar in the title role.
