| Mexican remake of Chaplin's "The Kid"
I was 9 years old (in 1981) when I watched "El Globero" (The Ballon Man) and it almost made me cry. It was a very touching and heartwarming film. It was the first movie I ever see of Clavillazo. Also in the movie appears the former wife of the deceased Pedro Infante Irma Dorantes.Although this movie wasn't as funny as the original"Kid" of Charles Chaplin I think it was even more touching.While in the original "Kid" the Tramp worked repairing broken windows in the "Balloon Man" Clavillazo sells balloons, and in the original the Kid used to broke the glasses of the windows, in this remake the foster son of Clavillazo used to blow the balloons with a slingshot; in the original the mother of the Kid was an actress, in this remake the boy has mom and dad and they're both wealthy people.
