It is hard to believe that this film deals with Mexican crop workers trying to find work and happiness in America and is the same situation that has escalated into a huge problem in the year 2006. Ricardo Montalban,(Pablo Rodriquez), "Dynasty,'89 TV Series, plays an undercover Immagration Officer who tires to find out who is taking advantage of Mexican people by taking their money for entrance into the U.S. and making them disappear because of not having the proper paper work. George Murphy, (Jack Bearnes), "Battleground",'49 works as an agent along with Pablo and gives an outstanding supporting role. By the way, George Murphy became a U.S.Senator from California in real life. Howard DaSilva, (Owen Parkson),"The Great Gatsby",'74 plays an evil dude who is into all kinds of crooked deals. Great 1949 film about problems we are facing today in the United States.
