A cheating gambler and his two sons go to town

Although this film has a very naive plot, it's a delight to see. The
reason is Jorge Negrete, the superb Mexican singer and actor. Funny at
times, this predictable movie, becomes an entertaining one for the
Spanish speaking audience due to the presence of Negrete. Negrete was
playing the role of a young Mexican 'charro', but he was, already in
his forties, already showing a heavy aspect in his figure. Nevertheless
he is as always a charming actor with one of the best voices in the
world. The best in the opinion of an acclaimed German opera conductor.
Regrettably this was one of the last movies, for Negrete was close to
his untimely death in 1953 caused by an old hepatitis C. I was
surprised to see in this movie very long scenes, which went very well.
This is an indication of the high professional level of the Golden Age
of Mexican cinematography.
