Trivia

The movie was actually shot in the cities of Jalapa and Veracruz in 1940. The original title is "Carnaval en Veracruz". This is more of a Medel movie than a Cantinflas. Though Cantinflas is in the movie, they are clips that were edited into the movie. You will notice that Manuel Medel and Mario Moreno are not seen together interacting at all. See more »

Strange version...
24 September 2011 | by (Houston, USA) – See all my reviews

I am sure back in 1941 this was a wonderful movie. Now has been dubbed and the new audio track has replaced the original sound. That is awful because most of the comedy relied on the original voices and now has lost some of the appealing. Adding to that, the songs are not the same they sing in the movie and God knows what else is not the same as before, maybe even the script. I say this because of the lip sync, which shows the Trio singing something completely different from what you hear. The movie is good (if you are not to picky, though) and is in Spanish. The quality is not very good, what means they only replaced the audio but didn't improve the video... too bad...
