One of my all-time fav movies.
2 June 2004 | by (San Antonio Tx.) – See all my reviews

I probably have seen this movie at least 20 times. Needless to say, I have it totally memorized. I guess there are many reasons why I like this movie. To begin with, I have a crush on Miroslava. She is so beautiful. I recently acquired a DVD copy of the movie, and her stunning good looks are even better showcased. For those of you that don't know it, she was born in Chekoslovakia and raised in Mexico. There is, unfortunately, a tragic end to her story in real life... Anyway, I am also a fan of Pedro Infante, and he delivers a superb performance as the "vagabundo." There are many scenes I just thoroughly enjoy, such as the whole party scene, that includes Pedro serenading the party guests, and the dinner scene. Lastly, I just like the simple, but well developed plot.
