A nice little romantic tale
John Turley from Los Angeles, California
4 April 2005
This story takes place in a small dusty town which has the perfect look
of the Old West. Filmed long ago in 1932, it well might have looked
like that in real life! It is very much off the beaten path and near
the Mexican border. There are colorful Mexican cowboys with guitars and
friendly though meek townsfolk. Captain Innocencio (Leo Carrillo)
practices "frontier justice", just one of several responsibilities he
has in running the town. Whatever he says goes! But there is something
more important to Captain Innocencio than the town's affairs: He is
trying to win the heart of Lolita (Lupe Velez), the daughter of a
wealthy rancher. Lolita is a spunky young woman who shows Captain
Innocencio that she won't give in to him like the other townsfolk do.
Therefore, the poor captain must instead rely solely on his charms
which are somewhat awkward. Showing up for dinner one evening, the
captain accidentally steps on Lolita's flowers, and she gives him a
telling off! You can't help but feel sorry for him...
Lolita gets her fortune read and learns that her "true love" will
appear later in the evening after a dramatic lightening storm. As
Captain Innocencio smirks, there are flashes outside. A sudden storm
has appeared! Shortly after, a dashing young pilot caught in the storm
arrives in need of shelter.
Where does this handsome stranger come from? Is he Lolita's "true
love"? And do we expect Captain Innocencio to sit by quietly during
this unexpected turn of events? Stay tuned and find out!
