"A nostalgic film in many ways, with great cameo appearances. The most notable is a brief argument he has with Tin Tan (playing himself), that should've last longer, but the one when he sings second in a duet with Pedro Vargas is undoubtedly the best version of "La negra noche". Oscar Pulido and the unforgettable Vitola are the indispensable ration of comedy and they are in top form. But to top it all, he ended up married in real life to his sister in this movie (Irma). It's great to see this kind of movies restored and digitally reproduced in DVD. Thank you. We need more of this to preserve all those wonderful Mexican movies of the 40's and early 50's"

"Pedro plays a unique and interesting leading man, who only gets involved in picures because of his family's financial situation and because his mother and sister (played by Irma) are crazy about the movies. By chance he is "discovered" and it rolls from there with some very interesting twists and turns. The supporting cast are regulars who are, as usual, outstanding. Great comedy with some touching drama, great music (with some assistance from Pedro Vargas). To me the most impressive part is that Irma is finally given a character she can let loose with, and it's a pleasure to see. One of my favorites. (No subtiles- but get it anyway!)"
