Storyline

In a little Mexican village by the American border. However powerful big shot Captain Innocencio (a misnomer indeed!)is, he proves unable to charm Lolita, the shapely daughter of his neighbor, a big-time rancher. Lolita expects better than this awkward unprepossessing showoff! Besides the fortune-teller she consults tells her her true love will get into her life after a terrible storm. This very night a violent storm does break out and an American pilot, whose plane is caught in it, is forced to make an emergency landing next to where she lives. The gringo - by the name of Phil Marvin - is both dashing and good-looking. Good news for Lolita but bad news for Innocencio who is not ready to bow that easily... Written by Guy Bellinger

A nice little romantic tale
4 April 2005 | by jjturleySee all my reviews

This story takes place in a small dusty town which has the perfect look of the Old West. Filmed long ago in 1932, it well might have looked like that in real life! It is very much off the beaten path and near the Mexican border. There are colorful Mexican cowboys with guitars and friendly though meek townsfolk. Captain Innocencio (Leo Carrillo) practices "frontier justice", just one of several responsibilities he has in running the town. Whatever he says goes! But there is something more important to Captain Innocencio than the town's affairs: He is trying to win the heart of Lolita (Lupe Velez), the daughter of a wealthy rancher. Lolita is a spunky young woman who shows Captain Innocencio that she won't give in to him like the other townsfolk do. Therefore, the poor captain must instead rely solely on his charms which are somewhat awkward. Showing up for dinner one evening, the captain accidentally steps on Lolita's flowers, and she gives him a telling off! You can't help but feel sorry for him...

Lolita gets her fortune read and learns that her "true love" will appear later in the evening after a dramatic lightening storm. As Captain Innocencio smirks, there are flashes outside. A sudden storm has appeared! Shortly after, a dashing young pilot caught in the storm arrives in need of shelter.

Where does this handsome stranger come from? Is he Lolita's "true love"? And do we expect Captain Innocencio to sit by quietly during this unexpected turn of events? Stay tuned and find out!
