Luis Suárez es un rico terrateniente que es encontrado herido de disparo por un clan gitano que viaja en su carromato. Le recogen y le curan, salvándole probablemente de una muerte segura. Pasan unos días y Luis queda prendado de María de la O, una guapa gitana que mantiene un noviazgo con Miguel, que también viaja con ellos. Luis pide a María de la O que abandone el clan y se vaya con él a su mundo, muy diferente del que ella conoce. Inesperadamente, acepta la proposición... Película inspirada en la famosa canción con letra de Rafael de León y música de Manuel L. Quiroga. Written by
Miguel Ángel Díaz González
In this remake of the film based on the Spanish song María de la O, Lola Flores is the first star. Spanish popular folk songs are often small stories, and the performers use to do a little theater play while they sing. This is the case of the song on which this film is based. If you like Lola Flores, then you'll enjoy this film. There's no good acting here, but there are many nice songs performed by a young Lola Flores, and there's also a plot. Only recommended for flamenco fans.
