Entertaining Ranchera Movie
25 June 2015 | by chrisconway-16046See all my reviews

This Ranchera movie has certain recurring ingredients found in other 1940's era Mexican movies about Charros (Mexican Cowboys): rodeo contests, cock fighting, fist fights, and lots of serenading of women. I'm not a big fan of Negrete but this is a pretty good movie, although it's predictable. There are good comedic touches, courtesy of Chaflan, Negrete's sidekick, and "Mala Suerte" (Badluck), who joins them on their adventures. There's a lot of melodrama, shoot outs, and A LOT of local color and singing. I recommend this as a good introduction to the Ranchera movie genre that swept through Mexico beginning with "Allá en el Rancho Grande" in 1936. This genre celebrated Mexican rural life and customs.
