Movie Reviews

Tin Tan takes his show to Jalisco wearing his zoot suit
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great Tin Tan classic, when he still was a "pachuco" wearing his trademark zoot suit, to the extreme that he didn't forget to put a feather on his charro hat ("sombrero"). With the usual great cast typical of those years, including pretty Carmen Molina and gorgeous Rosita Quintana speaking with a great Mexican Jalisco accent. But perhaps the one that steals the show is Ismael Perez (I found his name in the IMDB), he is the little kid that hates Tin Tan, and his name in the movie is "Pepito" (like in the Mexican jokes) who makes fun of his zoot suit and for not wearing a gun. He ends up selling him his toy gun. Don't miss this one, it's just pure fun entertainment for all. Another must to be digitally restored from the Mexican golden era (40's and early 50's)"
Classic Tin Tan
Jorge A. Zarco | Fresno, CA USA | 01/19/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Soy Charro de Levita is one of Tin Tan's funniest films. Tin Tan(German Valdes) and his carnal Marcelo protect a single mother and her baby from a bunch of boorish cowboys. This film loses a point for a racist, politically incorrect musical number where Tin Tan sings in "Chinese"! It's like something out of a Jerry Lewis movie. Nitpicking aside, Soy Charro de Levita is a fun, sweet, lightweight comedy that hasn't lost its "entertainment value"."
Un vistazo a la vida en provincia del siglo pasado
EL TIO | MEXICO CITY | 03/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Esta comedia es genial, totalmente recomendable para pasar un buen rato de diversión, además te permite ver como era la vida en la provincia mexicana a mediados del siglo pasado, a mi gusto una de las mejores películas de Tin-Tan."
Comic genius on the road
Enrique Torres | San Diegotitlan, Califas | 03/05/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is another hilarious performance by German Valdez, or as he is known, Tin Tan. It is a musical comedy in the great tradition of Mexico's finest family movies. Tin Tan's sidekick Marcelo is with him on this one and the two of them together are great fun. Marcelo gives a great Hamlet scene that is priceless. Rosita Quintana takes a major role as the third person in a musical troupe, along with Marcelo and Tin Tan. They stumble upon their "good" fortune of getting a contract as they are on hard times. It seems they are out for dinner and do not have enough money to pay. They perform a really funny song and dance number with the Chineese-Mexican ("Chinito") restaurant owner being the subject of the song. A businessman sees them perform off the cuff and they are signed. Unfortunately they get more than they bargained for. Therein lies the basis for the comedy, as the adventures unfold while they try to get themselves out of one hot situation after another. This is a super funny comedy that highlights the talents of Tin Tan. His physical comedy and his nonsense speak, similar to Cantinflas, is pure genius in any decade or century. He is a riot. His pachuco demeanor adds to the charm of his character. If you speak Spanish there are original language copies out there, otherwise they have dubbed versions. This is one funny movie, in black and white , that is worth owning. Get this one for gut wrenching laughs."
