| A cheating gambler and his two sons go to town
Although this film has a very naive plot, it's a delight to see. The reason is Jorge Negrete, the superb Mexican singer and actor. Funny at times, this predictable movie, becomes an entertaining one for the Spanish speaking audience due to the presence of Negrete. Negrete was playing the role of a young Mexican 'charro', but he was, already in his forties, already showing a heavy aspect in his figure. Nevertheless he is as always a charming actor with one of the best voices in the world. The best in the opinion of an acclaimed German opera conductor.

Regrettably this was one of the last movies, for Negrete was close to his untimely death in 1953 caused by an old hepatitis C. I was surprised to see in this movie very long scenes, which went very well. This is an indication of the high professional level of the Golden Age of Mexican cinematography.
