Pure fun with Capulina and Leonorilda Ochoa in the Wild West!
6 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Capulina 'Speedy' González: El Rápido" (the film's complete title) is the first Capulina film I ever saw. It is a great comedy from the '60s (though released in the '70s) and one of Capulina's best. He plays Capulina Espiridión "Speedy" González, a chili pepper-fueled courier who is very hilarious. Leonorilda Ochoa, a great comedian in her own right, is no less hilarious as his girlfriend, Rosita Smith. Capulina and Leonorilda have great chemistry; she is one of Capulina's best leading ladies. The story, screenplay, sets, costumes, music, and supporting cast are all superb as well! Víctor Alcocer is exceptionally funny as the town priest, and "gringos" Jorge Radó and John Kelly give the film an authentic touch, since the film takes place in a United States town near the Mexican border.

Other favorite Capulina films of this extraordinary caliber include "Mi padrino" (1969), "El médico módico" (1971), "El bueno para nada" (1973), and "Capulina contra las momias" (1973).
