What a great singer! Jorge Negrete's voice is quite thrilling, rich, potent, expressive, just perfect for this type of song. It's hard to believe that he despised this sort of music and preferred opera. These songs are far better than opera, which is stuffy, staid and dull, and lacks that verge and impudence and humor.
This movie is worth seeing mainly for the great singer and songs, but the plot and good old-fashioned cinematography are also appealing.
