mexican-american tourism advertising
1 September 2001 | by (Graz, Austria) – See all my reviews

This old and poor mexican-american tourism advertising film of the awful 50'es is the current record holder of the worst film showed in the shortest period of repetitions on Austrian TV (Feb 2001, Sep 2001). This might reflect the current situation of the austrian government. "Nobody loves me, but look how beautiful I am. Let's hire a foreigner and let's make a wonderful movie of our country." The Austrian counterpart was called "1.April 2000 (1952)" and is by far funnier to watch than Canasta.
