interesting factoid
17 February 2007 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie, because I am learning Spanish, and because I like Pedro Infante as a singer.

Last night, we watched a movie on cable called "Merrily We Live", which was made in 1938. This movie, which starred Constance Bennett and Brian Aherne as the daughter and the bum, respectively, is an exact copy of that one, down to some of the scenery! For example, the opening scene where Pedro's car sputters up the hill, and then rolls back over the cliff while he gets water for it.

Just thought fans of "Escuela" might like to know, and to check this out if it comes back on television.
