Spanish Version of Free and Easy
2 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Estrellados is essentially the Spanish version of Free and Easy with Hispanic/Spanish speaking actors. In the early talkie days, films were made in several languages for wider audiences. It is believed that The Film Institute of Spain has a copy of the original film but will not release it for restoration. The movie is available in the English version with Spanish subtitles. The musical numbers were also translated to "La Reina De Mi Corazon" (Oh Queen/Oh King) and "Estrellados" (Free and Easy).

There are a few pictures and some posters of the film on the internet. Despite the how poorly Free and Easy was made, I'd like to see this version to make a comparison. I'd also like to hear the translated musical numbers. Maybe the Spanish Film Institute will change their mind and release it one day.
