An masterpiece in Spanish from the Hollywood studios
Carlos Gardel's own favorite film, "El día que me quieras", is one of the very best movies ever produced by a Hollywood studio. He did not live to see its success, but he was right. His genius as a composer, actor and singer emerges in this film that has never been out of circulation.
The video versions does not make any justice to this masterpiece since companies refuse to put money to get good prints (which do exist) for a good telecine.
Even in such poor conditions, the art of Carlos Gardel survives in this film and the soundtrack he recorded for both RCA Victor and EMI Odeon.
