Hollywood Comes To The Hacienda
A retired rebel breaks his government exile in order to meet a visiting Hollywood starlet. He's then talked into abducting her by her publicity-hungry manager (It doesn't take much convincing.) and brought to his hacienda. The charismatic rebel spends the next couple of days attempting to charm her, while competing with a coffee heir and contending with a jealous senorita.
A mildly entertaining, lightweight romantic comedy, this has a few risqué moments (for 1936 anyway) and flirts around with the idea of one character possibly being a lesbian! There's also a a few interesting songs, that before long change into dance numbers as well, threatening to turn the film into a full-on musical.
A frothy adventure, it would have benefited from some name stars.
