The authentic king of comedy in México
24 November 2000 | by baltasartorresSee all my reviews

Maybe you´ve heard of Cantinflas,but now you can check the precursor of Pachucos movies (e.g.Zoot suit) and really enjoy the great Tin Tan,On this film,he is a wannabe gangster,but he fails in every assault,nevertheless,he succeeds in one thing:to get the love of Silvia Pinal,and make the greatest Mexican comedy.
