Kaplan) and as a result he finds himself forced to assume the identity attached to that name. When it turns out that there never was an original Kaplan, that is, that the name was itself invented, a subterfuge intended to throw the enemy off, Thornhill has effectively fulfilled his destiny and become that character. In both the film and La verdad sospechosa, the original error is theatrical because the interpellation essentially asks one to play a role. In North by Northwest, Thornhill is interpellated into the role of Kaplan; in La verdad sospechosa, Jacinta is interpellated into the role of Lucrecia.

But what is offered in the utterance, in classic Cervantine irony, is immediately undermined in the enunciation, as in this case in which the narrator discusses Carrizales’s hypothetical discovery of his honor’s destruction12: It would be good at this moment to ask Carrizales, if we didn’t know he was sleeping, where are now his well warned recatos, his suspicions, his warnings, his persuasions, the high walls of his house, the not having let in even the shadow of one who would have the name of male.

The figures on the clothes that adorned the rooms and stalls were all females, flowers, and woods. All his house smelled of honesty, seclusion, and recato. (106) And yet despite—or better, precisely because of—Carrizales’s supreme recato, his greatest fear is realized, and his prize possession, the virgin child he calls his wife, is spoiled. )11 The difference between “despite” and “because of,” however, is a great one, and it thus makes sense to pin this point down. When we first meet the undoer of Felipo’s honor, Cervantes gives us a clue as to his motivation: “One of those young men who among themselves is called virote, bachelor [the word emphasizes his virility], who calls the recently married mantones [shawls], began to watch the house of the recatado Carrizales, and seeing it always locked, got the urge to know who lived inside; and he did his work with such enthusiasm and curiosity that he came to know everything he desired” (107).
