A still Fresh Cantinflas
19 March 2014 | by (Monterrey,Mexico) – See all my reviews

In This film debut the beautiful French Christiane Martel in the Mexican movies ,miss Universe 1953 is a simple funny comedy with cantinflas in his natural character,before he adopted his multiple media class Professions in later movies. With a not very original script of Jaime Salvador, Cantinflas have to bring out the film with his natural way of talk and dance,as usual in those years every Cantinflas Movie had a great expectation and audience acceptation,this time as a window washer who is witness of a Jewel robbery He is accused of that and ask a term of thirty days to solve the crime, he goes to the theater where Martell has her show and catch the real criminal with no more pretensions it's a Funny Movie with still better Cantinflas
