A Mexican Musical Extravaganza
I cannot say enough good things about this extraordinary Mexican tale that reverberates with Mambo, with Romberas, rehearsed dance numbers and musical styles typifying Pachuco, Hillbilly, mambo, rumbas and Mexican rancheras! Miss Pons, plays a rich Mestiza girl that gets hood- winked by a gangster and is transported to Juarez, Mx. Suddenly, Mexican actress Sara Garcia enters the fray as a out of control drunk who befriends Pons and sees her as a daughter she never had......Sara's performance as a whizzed alcoholic who forgets everything while drunk is unforgettable.Typical gangster types, a gigantic number orchestrated by Perez Prado danced to the tune "El Ruletero", this Mexican vehicle for Argentine Pons is entertaining, one of the best 'rumbera' films of the Golden Age of Mexican films.....
