More than just camp value

8/10

Although that is present as well, in some of the musical numbers. Altogether, this is a fine piece of entertainment, not just a Mexican curiosity.

Antonio Aguilar brings a fine, almost Old-World authority to the title role, and the honesty and eagerness to please of the rest of the cast smooths any rough, amateurish edges.

Of particular interest is the diversity of the soundtrack. I thought I heard a snippet of a Haydn Mass (either the "Lord Nelson" mass, or the "Heilig" mass) at the closing credits.

The film is perhaps less successful when it is trying to be a Mexican "Godfather." Quintero's character is more a distillation of Sam Spade, Gene Autry, and John Wayne than Vito Corleone. The outfits say it all -- he is a modern-day singing cowboy.
