Luis Suárez es un rico terrateniente que es encontrado herido de disparo por un clan gitano que viaja en su carromato. Le recogen y le curan, salvándole probablemente de una muerte segura. Pasan unos días y Luis queda prendado de María de la O, una guapa gitana que mantiene un noviazgo con Miguel, que también viaja con ellos. Luis pide a María de la O que abandone el clan y se vaya con él a su mundo, muy diferente del que ella conoce. Inesperadamente, acepta la proposición... Película inspirada en la famosa canción con letra de Rafael de León y música de Manuel L. Quiroga.Written by

Probably the most representative film of those starred by Lola Flores in 50s, recommended if you are interested on Spanish folk music and culture, and specially on gypsy people.
The acting isn't very good (Lola never was an extraordinary actress, but she was always Her, what is enough) but there is a plot, odd situations, nice music, love and drama. Other trouble in my personal opinion is that the movie need a better script, and the love affair, for example, is not enough developed and solved.
A young rich man owner of a big country property is shooted and wounded when he goes for a ride with his horse. Rescued and treated by a group of gypsies he knows Maria de la O and they get in on together and he even promise her to marriage. They both have other friends pretending their love and...i'm not going to spoil you the film and tell you if there's a happy end or not. The only thing i can say is that its not a very Hollywood made one. So watch it!
Based in a Spanish folk song and with a previous version in 30s the movie is in many ways a western settled in Andalucía. Not with Indians but gypsies.
