""El Enamorado," AKA "Vuelve Martin Corona," is the 3rd film Pedro Infante made with Sarita Montiel, the Spanish singer/actress who was an international superstar in the 50's and 60's. This sequel to "Ahi Viene Martin Corona" has the same marvelous cast, With Infante as Martin, Montiel as his love Rosario, Lalo Gonzalez as Piporro, his teacher and friend, and Florencio Castello as Rosario's father. By this time Martin and Rosario have married and have a family, and her jealousy and temper, as well as her distaste for guns, have curtailed Martin's activities of helping those who need protection from the "bad guys" in the land, and people are saying he is no longer the man he used to be. Rosario finally relents, and the last 1/2 hour of "El Enamorado" takes a turn and is very dramatic, with some "edge of your seat" moments.
Directed by Miguel Zacarias, the film also includes legendary singer/songwiter Jose Alfredo Jimenez, and glorious cinematography by the great Gabriel Figueroa, whose use of light and shade, and the sheer beauty of his work is especially noticeable in the last part of the film. No subtitles are available. There are plenty of delightful songs to enjoy, and the list is:
1: "Del Mero Norte" (Jose Alfredo Jimenez)
2: "Viejos Amigos" (Infante)
3: "Siempre, Siempre" (Infante)
4: "Un Dia Nublado" (Infante)
5: "Ahi Vienen los Mariachis" (Infante)
6: "La Buenaventura" (Montiel)"
