Storyline

Eddie and his Mexican friend Ricardo are expelled from college after Ricardo put Eddie in the girl's dormitory when he was drunk. Per chance Eddie gets mixed up in a bank robbery and is forced to drive the robbers to safety. To get rid of him they force him to leave the USA for Mexico, but a cop is following him. Eddie meets Ricardo there, Ricardo helps him avoid being arrested by the cop when he introduces Eddie as the great Spanish bullfighter Don Sebastian II. The problem is, the cop is still curious and has tickets for the bullfight. Eddie's situation becomes more critical, when he tries to help Ricardo to win the girl he loves, but she's engaged to a "real" Mexican, who is, unknown to her father, involved in illegal business. While trying to avoid all this trouble, Eddie himself falls in love with his friend's girl friend's sister Rosalie, who also want to see the great Don Sebastian II to kill the bull in the arena.

Eddie is always funny
29 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to see this film streaming on Netflix, as I have had a really hard time seeing any of Eddie Cantor's films. There may be some rights issued involved, but I suspect that Eddie's blackface routines, which are included in all of his Goldwyn films, are the reason these are suppressed. All of these Goldwyn films have first-rate production values, melodic songs, and great co-stars Eddie can play off of. Lyda Roberti, who died far too young, is adorable and funny as the female co-star here. I was somewhat surprised to see a very young Robert Young playing a Latin-type here. Every Cantor film has a comic set-piece, and the bullfight scene here had me in convulsions of laughter. I have excellent DVDs of "Whoopee!" and "Kid Millions", and now I can see this. Let's hope that more films from this great funnyman can become viewable for the many fans.
