Pedro infante's life...... according to Maria Luisa Leon
Maria Luisa,the very first(and maybe legally the only one!)Infante's wife wrote this movie plot and shows herself as a heroine in his life. opposite to what some biographers tell about her in many books, however she didn't hide some aspects in Infante's life that don't show her precisely as his great love
so we can see his affair with Lupita Torrentera,who had two children with him, although the film just showed one of them,Begoña Palacios Played this role, and also we can see the aerial accident that they had together in 1949,besides the movie makes mention the marriage of Infante with the actress Irma Dorantes that later would be invalidated.
The life of Pedro Infante sounds to be for a livelier movie, because this one seems a little insipid, with Jose Infante, Pedro Infante's brother as protagonist, who didn't have any other experience on the movies but just appears in Infant's films when his brother makes double roles and Maricruz Olivier as Maria Luisa Leon, the very resigned wife to share her husband with any women he wants, the movie includes some scenes with the real Infante Obviously in movies directed and produced for Miguel Zacarias,the same of this one, the film clarify in its publicity that it wasn't a documentary but a movie, in order to warn the public who had seen before a documentary about Infante's life in,Asi era Pedro Infante(1963)dir.Ismael Rodriguez a few months ago, in fact that documentary was more entertaining than this movie, in this way Pedro Infante's fans could enjoy their Idol years after their death, thanks to his two greater producers and directors who like them don't resigned to forget him
. even as in this case their respective wallets!
