Another great Cantinflas movie!
19 April 2005 | by (Elk Grove, California) – See all my reviews

Mario Moreno portrays a professor in this movie. A small town in the middle of no where requests the school Mario Moreno is working in for a teacher. He ends up going to give the town a hand. When he arrives he comes to know the corrupt leaders who through out the movie try to make him leave. Although he is being harassed you can see how much he cares for the kids and their circumstances. He deals with problems by using his hilarious comments. The DVD is overall pretty good. Both the picture and audio is done well considering it is an old film. This film is probably one of my favorite Cantinflas classics. Its a must have. Like in his other movies...he's funny, witty, and compassionate.
