According to Tex Ritter, that's 100 too many in any language.
30 December 2002 | by Leslie Howard AdamsSee all my reviews

The promotional tagline for this Argentina-produced, Spanish-language film is..."AND 100 ACCORDONISTAS." In the mid-1950's, western film star Tex Ritter was on a personal appearance tour in the Midwest and he and his band were traveling in two vehicles. Ritter and his guitar player arrived at a Ohio theater in a car but the rest of the group, traveling in a bus, had broken down in Kentucky and weren't going to make the show on time. The theater manager told Mr. Ritter not to worry, as they had a good accordian player on staff who could fill in. Mr. Ritter's reply was, "No, you don't. There are no good accordian players."
