Tin Tan is the most refined comic actor of my country
24 March 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I'm so glad to write about my idol Tin Tan. "El Rey del Barrio" is an excellent way to show what Tin Tan could be, some one who live with little money and is so happy. It's wonderful how he try to show that is a bad man, who was in the Mafia of Chicago, but truly he es better than the bread. All his phrases, that in so many cases, we who speak Spanish, its hard to understand, but is so lovely the way he do it. All the time we know the words who came from him, Tin Tan is unique, his own style to talk, to dress, to sing. Some of the best part of the movie is when he sing to "Carmelita" (Silvia Pinal), one of the most romantic songs I ever heard:"Contigo" (With you). He was an excellent actor, he could be rich, poor, working, manager, anything. I also recommended: El Revoltoso, El Ceniciento, El hijo desobediente. Tin Tan: Thank you to be like you you was, you are the one, the best. Jacqueline Arch
