Trivia

Both Negrete and Infante refused for a long time to work together. When they finally agreed, Infante was afraid to sing because he believed that his voice could be overwhelmed for the operatic, strong and beautiful voice of Negrete, who was afraid to act besides Infante, probably the best actor in Latin America ever. The result was however, excellent. Ismael Rodriguez and Carlos Orellana developed a mastered screenplay, Rodriguez directed them carefully (and obtained the best performance of Negrete ever).

Great fun from 1950s Mexico
11 August 2018 | by AlsExGalSee all my reviews

This movie, starring two Mexican superstar singers/actors of the era, Jorge Negrete and Pedro Infante, has a title which translates roughly as "Two Guys to Watch Out For" It is a film very much of its time, politically incorrect on many levels; this is overlaid with a thick machista layer, underscoring the tale of male priviledge and the double standard.

The film.is great fun, a fast-paced farce of misunderstandings, about two friends fallen out over a marital mix-up. The film is a little disjointed at the beginning, with a fairly long prologue. This sets up the conflict to follow. Once the actual story gets under way, it is fun to see the former friends try to trip up each other, and although not seemingly possible, there is a plausible and satisfactory denoument.

Throughout the film, the two stars and other cast.members break into song quite frequently. These tend to be of the folkloric, "Ranchera" style, which is the genre usually associated with the two singers. The look of the film, additionally, plies in a folkloric vision of rural Mexico. The cinematography is excellent overall, with beautiful vistas of countryside, as well as chiaroscuro lighting in the interior scenes.
