The story of the Countess d'Orsini, French noblewoman and courtesan at the court of the Spanish king, who acted as an agent for the King of France and was one of the most powerful people at the Spanish court.
Anselmo, a school teacher in the small Spanish village of Luján, is fired for accidentally hypnotize his students trying to learn them the lessons. However, the news that, after the death of his relative Joe B. Martin, he has inherited a fortune in America it's any consolation for him and decides to go to the United States. Written by
Sáenz de Heredia, Valeriano Leon and a great script.
José Luis Sáenz de Heredia, one of the most important filmmakers of the forties "Raza" 1942 "Mariona Rebull" 1947, Historias de la Radio" 1955, "El grano de mostaza" 1962, "Don Erre que Erre" 1970 was the writer and director of this quirky comedy, in which a school teacher has hypnotic powers. Employment terminates, for obvious reasons, but it is blessed with a heritage in America. When it turns out that there is no fortune, and then it has to capitalize on his peculiar power.
But "A mi no me mire usted" is a completely foreign film of its time, very out of place in his scenes just living beyond penury Spain following its civil war. It is, somehow, a "comedy of white telephones" (as it was known in Italy this kind of comedy evasion), but paradoxically in this film are not those phones. "A mi no me mire usted" is an entertainment product, of course well settled professionally, as you would expect from a prestigious author, with the then famous player Valeriano Leon "El Piyayo" 1956, and "El Padre Pitillo" 1955, as splendid protagonist.
Only comment is that this film has an excellent script that would have given a good "remake".
