When the original script of El Ultimo Cuple was submitted to the censors, as required by law in General Franco's regime, it was rejected. The story described the Paca character as a typically aggressive stage mother pushing her daughter Maria into the morally challenged "cuple" singing career. Censors saw it as immoral behavior for a Spanish mother in Catholic Spain and they asked the writers to change the character from mother to aunt. The change was made but the censors thought it over and decided that it was also improper behavior for an aunt. The writers came up with the perfect solution by adding a two-line dialog where Maria's boyfriend tells her: "Why care about her? She is not even a blood relation of yours." To which Maria replies: "It doesn't matter. She raised me and sacrificed for me. She loves me in her own way." The censors were happy this time and approved the script. See more
