Simple Gardel film - and maybe the best known - where a son of a millionaire scape from his easy life for his love. A decent melodrama filmed in Paramount studios and being a kind of hit specially at the times of his death. Good performances and great songs like "El Dia que me quieras" and "Volver", which is easily remembered seeing Penelope Cruz singing'it in Almodovar's "Volver".
