This was actually the second film in the series, following "The Girl from Mexico" (1939). It became the most famous title in the series and subsequent entries were regarded as the "Mexican Spitfire" series. "The Mexican Spitfire" also became a nickname for Lupe Valez. See more »
During the food fight, one of the guests standing behind Carmelita starts to throw a cupcake, and accidentally hits a blonde standing next to him. In the next shot, a wide shot of the room, both are seen throwing food at other guests. But in the next shot the blonde reacts to the cupcake and takes revenge on the man. See more »
Lupe Velez in the first of the "Mexican Spitfire" series of movies. There would be about eight of them. She plays Carmelita Lindsay, new wife of Ad man Dennis Lindsay. They are fresh back from their honeymoon in this picture when Dennis' old flame Elizabeth (also the name of Carmelita's Chihuahua by the way...) decides she sees something new in Dennis and wants to get back together with him despite his marriage to Carmelita. Lupe is wonderful in this role as a frenetic, wise-cracking bundle of energy. She makes funny faces, is very expressive, has a wonderful smile and has her hands full dealing with Elizabeth ( Not the chihuahua, the OTHER dog...). Add into the mix, Lord Epping a much-bucks client of her husband Dennis, cases of mistaken identity and you have a great movie at a little over an hour... Lupe is absolutely cute! She curses to herself under her breath in Spanish, a little comic technique later "borrowed" by Senor Desi Arnaz who was probably still in Cuba when these films came out, waiting for his big break. This movie isnt on video and is not played that often, so catch it when and where you can, hokay? Hokay!
