Constantly entertaining, this fascinating Mexican film is one of the best comedies ever made!
23 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Los fanfarrones" is one of the best western comedies of classic Mexican cinema. There couldn't have been a better cast: Miguel Aceves Mejía and Flor Silvestre as the first couple, Julio Aldama and Irma Dorantes as the second couple, and Mauricio Garcés and Verónica Loyo as the third couple, all have great chemistry on screen and excellent talent for comedy. Miguel and Flor both worked together in a radio program, a television program, and another film ("El ciclón", 1959), while Julio and Irma have appeared as a couple in several other films, too. Miguel, Flor, Julio, Irma, and Verónica, five of Mexico's best folk singers, sing various songs, and Mauricio, although he wasn't a recording artist (he was a comic actor), also contributes to the soundtrack. The film is also greatly benefited by Rogelio A. González's expert direction, a unique screenplay (original story written by José María Fernández Unsáin; adaptation by Alfredo Varela, Jr.), and effective supporting and minor roles (e.g. Joaquín García "Borolas", Lupe Carriles).
