I would not call this movie Film Noir at all, the period is right, but that's about all that's right about Mystery in Mexico. The soundtrack is nothing but maracas that set the mood for a Mexican vacation, nothing to emphasis the criminal aspect. Most of the reviews here are impressed by the director's later work, which to me is irrelevant. It is only what you see in this film that matters, what a viewer experiences who never heard of the director, or anyone else involved in this pitiful production. The only good performances were by two children, playing a brother and sister, in the last moments of the picture. They were the only actors who took the picture seriously. They were thoroughly believable.
