| not enough Lupe
I'll keep this very brief, as previous reviewers have covered it well. The same basic plot as "Mexican Spitfire" - man needs to secure a business contract while aunt tries to sabotage his marriage. The problem facing this movie is that the title character - Carmelita - is practically a supporting role. The main focus is on the dual performance of Leon Errol as Uncle Matt and Lord Epping. It was a tired joke in the first film, yet now becomes even more prominent. Lupe Velez was the main attraction in "The Girl From Mexico", which is why it was spun off into a series in the first place. Why ignore Carmelita now? I'm hopeful that future films in the series return to Velez as the primary figure.
