Sensitive and enjoyable Mario Moreno Cantinflas recital giving a very likeable and attractive performance
A good-natured man : Cantinflas , son of a deceased postman with whom he usually talks , befriends an important minister who hires him as a state official . As Cantinflas has a new job as a bureaucrat , as he becomes involved in a lot of problems with his chiefs and office colleagues. At work he meets an old man : Angel Garasa , he makes a deep friendship with him , and his deaf-mute grandson . Along the way, Cantinflas has relationships with other lodgers at the boarding house where he lives . Finally , Cantinflas will do whatever thing to get the little girl can speak to undergo an overseas expensive operation .
Hilarious Mario Moreno Cantinflas tour-de-force resulting to be an agreeable and good-feeling film in which he acts as a real and kind Quijote helping unfortunate and distressed people . Cantinflas gives a sensitive and sympathetic acting as the good-hearted clerk who falls in grace to a Minister and subsequently working for the goverment . Problems emerge when his bureaucratic job and envy around alienates him with his work colleagues . The film displays a sour critique to bureaucracy that causes continuous headache and discussion due to the heavy requirement of documents and useless papers . The highligts of the movie are the dances and songs who perform Cantinflas and Manolita Saval , as they amusingly dancing and singing Zarzuela songs : 'El Relicario' music by Jose Padilla and 'Madrid' music by Agustín Lara . Other highspots are the wacky car races of antique vehicles in which Cantinflas gets to be champion after several obstacles.
Accompanied by the great actor Antonio Garasa and directed by his ordinary filmmaker Miguel Maria Delgado , both of them worked a lot with the great Cantinflas . Equally, Mario Moreno has performed motley roles with all kinds of jobs as a street cleaner, a scientist, a bellboy, a photographer, a priest, an elevator operator, a fireman, a student, a doctor, an Ambassador, an actor, a cowboy, a bullfighter, among others . These characters were interpreted in films as El Supersabio, El Señor Doctor, El Padrecito, El Analfabeto , Su Excelencia, Ni Sangre Ni Arena, Gran Hotel, Por Mis Pistolas, Sube Y Baja, Señor Fotografo, Conserje Para Todo, El Extra, El Bombero Atomico, El Barrendero . Most of them professionally directed by his favorite filmmaker Luis Delgado who had knowledge enough of the mechanics of cinema , getting entetainment and amusement, realizing good movies.
