This essay presents an overview of the films that Sáenz Heredia made when his idol, Francisco Franco, had already appointed his successor and the machinery of the transition conceived by the dictatorship was already in motion. In the six years spanning the second half of 1969 and November 1975, Heredia released ten feature-length films, more than a quarter of his entire filmography. This essay will take a close look at his filmography in relation to two thematic poles: images of women and the dialectics between tradition and modernity and, arising from these themes, the unprecedented appearance of new social subjects in Spanish cinema.
