Hilarious Dual Role
New Woman | New York USA | 07/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is Negrete at his best, in a dual role as himself and a poor cowboy lookalike. Not only is the humor and the supporting cast top notch, but Negrete sings a number of great songs. Highly recommend!"
Lots of fun!

"This movie pokes fun at Negrete's celebritity status. The GREAT singer, Jorge Negrete has disappeared! A cowboy, a Negrete look-alike (played in a dual role by Negrete) shows up at this time at an isolated Rancho and is mistaken for the singer. Of course, the rancher's beautiful daughter falls for the cowboy, thinking that he is really Negrete in disguise.
Negrete is wonderful in this movie. It is not a difficult movie to follow and even those with limited Spanish will be able to enjoy it. One of my favorites."
El gran Negrete
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 05/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jorge Negrete (1911-1953) is marvelous in this "mixed identities" plot where he plays the dual role of himself, the singing idol and film superstar, as well as a down on his luck cowboy, Ramon Blanquet, who travels with his buddy Refugio (Armando "El Chicote" Soto la Marina) looking for work. Fainting from hunger, they go to a ranch, where Blanquet is mistaken for Negrete. The rancher's daughter Marta (Lilia Michel) is very pretty, and an avid Negrete fan, leading to the inevitable fun and nonsense, and when Blanquet and Negrete meet face to face, all hell breaks lose.
Others in the cast are Lupe Inclan (Petra), Antonio Fausto (Próspero), Salvador Quiroz (Don Pancho), and Eugenia Galindo, as Marta's funny aunt.
Directed at a nice clip by Juan Bustillo Oro, with Victor Herrera's cinematography.

Made in 1945, the age is more noticeable in the audio than the visual, but nevertheless the songs are enjoyable, with 3 songs by Manuel Esperón and Ernesto Cortázar, "El Charro Mexicano", "Chaparrita Cuerpo de Uva", and "Amor de Mi Amor".
Negrete's smooth baritone had operatic training (he was at one point even offered a contract with the Metropolitan Opera), and he's always a joy to listen to.
An amusing film to see this legendary singer/actor at the peak of his all too short career, there are no subtitles, and the total running time is 90 minutes.
