Trivia

Several sources indicate that this film was actually shot and released in 1941 with some additional documentary footage of Cantinflas, who sued against its release as "a Cantinflas movie". His participation in the film was "involuntary". The film played at the Teatro Panamericano (Dallas) on 25 February 1944, so the indicated release date of 1946 is either incorrect or a result of legal resolution of the suit by Cantinflas. One source of this info is http://www.answers.com/topic/cantinflas. The Dallas show date was acquired from the Dallas Morning News of 20 February 1944. 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...
