Storyline

Castelar, "El Tío del Gabán" y "El Pelirrojo" son tres delincuentes de poca monta que se dedican al carterismo organizado en el Rastro de Madrid. Un día se reúnen por deseo de su antiguo socio Daniel "El Melancólico", que planea cometer un robo en una joyería. El intento resulta ser un estrepitoso fracaso. Pero Daniel no ceja en su empeño, y poco después les encomienda el robo del contenido de la caja fuerte de una mansión. Los problemas no tardan en volver a aparecer: La dueña Doña Andrea murió envenenada por Germana, su cuñada, y su esposo Don Felipe, el dueño, está siendo envenenado poco a poco, en las infusiones de tisana, del mismo modo que lo fue Andrea. Además, por si fuera poco, Daniel se enamora de Herminia, la ahijada del dueño... Written by Miguel Ángel Díaz González

classic Spanish film
16 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

A gang of thieves with a good heart are going to do their biggest robbery, because they are going to steal a very valuable necklace from a rich family. Curiously, one of them fells in love with the daughter of the rich men, so the plan must change, in a laughing way... This movie is a comedy in a classic way, that sometimes reminds "the pink panther" (Peter Sellers movie was made some years after this one) in the absurd of the humour. It is pleasant to watch, and the actors are quite good. The story, though typical, is not bad, but a little too mixed to follow: you can't distract if you want to catch everything. Possibly one of the best Spanish films before the 60's (Well, this is not difficult, thinking about the quality of the cinema of that time). Nowadays, this humour is a little archaic, but it is funny.
