This is a piece of pure audiovisual nostalgic history, preserved in a film.
If you are a Cantinflas fan or a serious student, this is perfect for you. It was done some years before the development of his classic image and his association with MM Delgado. The most remarkable of this film, are the scenes when he appears in a theatre with his still partner then Manuel Medel, doing the same sketches they did a few years before, at the now mythical "carpas" (portable theatres under canvas). And here he appears as he used to appear in his very early years. Just those scenes, make this movie worth to be digitally restored and preserved in DVD.
