Living in a Studio
19 April 2005 | by (Elk Grove, California) – See all my reviews

In this film Mario Moreno plays a guy who practically lives on a movie set. He goes from set to set as an extra or observer but basically bothers the directors. In every set he is on he imagines himself as the main actor. He meets a young women who is an orphan along with her two younger brothers and is looking for an acting job. Cantinflas makes it a top priority to get her discovered. The problems he gets into are too funny to explain. The sound and color are pretty good. There are no special features. The movie was pretty funny; seeing cantinflas in Indian and cowboy outfits gives it the ninth star. Its not his best film but its almost there.
