José Carlos Ruiz,
Rigo y la Tulipana se conocen en el cabaret donde trabajan, él como cantante y ella como fichera. Viven un intenso amor, pero el acoholismo de Rigo es una fuente de tensión constante. Las cosas se complican con la aparición de otra mujer.
This movie was made in Mexico at the height of Rigomania, while its not a great film it is filled with some terrific music. It was basically a movie built around a soundtrack. It parallels Rigo's life with him hitting the big time. Rigo always an admirer of Elvis Presley knew that making movies was good career move, at least financially. It is good to see him as still a young man and his music at peak form. The movie is fun, mind-candy. Great scenes of him in concert accentuate it. The dialogue is almost a word for word description of Rigo Tovar's success up to that time. A good film to see considering his recent passing this year.
