I saw "Mi querida señorita" many years ago in Chicago, in a Spanish Films Festival. I was overwhelmed by this jewel of a film. At the time it was quite daring and José Luis López Vázquez an incredible actor. Although he was (and is, I hope) a very popular actor in Spain, I couldn't believe the amount of work he has done: 255 films!! I wish I could have a copy of this film, since after so many years after watching it, I keep it in my mind as one of my favorite movies of all times. It also opened the Spanish cinema doors to me, since at that time it was quite difficult in the USA to be able to see foreign movies. Since then I consider the Spanish film-making among the best and finest in the world.
