Cholita, after a long absence in Mexico City, is returning home to take up her duties as head of the rancho and, as everyone expects, to marry her childhood sweetheart José. Expectations are somewhat dashed as she shows up with Fernando to whom she is engaged. This makes José and Cholita's uncle more than a little bit put out as Fernando is not only not a Mexican, he is also a city slicker afraid of the country. Written by

This somewhat bland musical comedy isn't anything special, although as light entertainment it is at least watchable. The story revolves around some romantic tangle-ups that happen during a Mexican "Fiesta", but there's not really much depth to the story or the characters. Fernando is mildly interesting, but the rest of the characters are one-dimensional, and for the most part the cast does not succeed in getting much out of them. They wisely kept the running time short, and devoted a lot of it to the musical numbers. Since it was filmed in color, they must have had high hopes for it. And there are parts of it that are entertaining, but overall there's not enough for it to be of more than casual interest.
