One of Tin Tan's Best

One of the best Tin Tan comedies with his sidekick Marcelo Chávez, under the direction of Gilberto Martínez Solares, the same people that made the classics, "Calabacitas tiernas (¡Ay, qué bonitas piernas!)", "El rey del barrio" and "El revoltoso". The four films are solid products that hold up very well after 60 years of being made. When you watch any of these movies you do not expect masterpieces: they are star vehicles rooted in vaudeville and circus, with the kind of comedy performed by buffoons in tents. Their structures are basic, built around sequences dealing with a single situation: in this case, Tin Tan as a waiter, Tin Tan as a private detective and finally as a wrestler. Opposed to Cantinflas and other Mexican comics, Tin Tan was a charismatic and handsome comic, a good dancer and singer, stylishly dressed in pachuco outfits or in rags, as the poorest guy in town. This time he is constantly put in jail for the silliest possible reasons, while his lawyer neighbor (Marcelo) make things worse instead of helping him. When he is falsely accused of stealing the tires of a car, his girlfriend (Rosita Quintana) signs IOUs in his name, that force him to find work and raise the money to pay. The funniest sequence is the one concerning Tin Tan's last job, when he has to fight a wrestler called "El Enmascarado", who turns out to be one of the many restaurant clients he abused while working as a waiter. The role is played by Wolf Ruvinskis, a professional wrestler who was the villain or center of jokes in many of Tin Tan's movies. They were very good friends in real life, and it shows, since the match is truly hilarious. Maybe for cultural reasons, the humor is limited to or more appreciated by Latin Americans, but this one rates very high in the actor's and director's filmographies.
