Description
A humble bootblack (a bolero, played by Cantinflas) becomes the tutor of an orphaned boy (Paquito Fernández) in this 1956 comedy. Particularly noteworthy is Cantinflas's demolition of a staged dance performance of Ravel's Boléro—another of his linguistic jests. Hailed by Charlie Chaplin as "the greatest comedian in the world," Fortino Mario Alfonso Moreno Reyes—known to millions by his character name "Cantinflas"—was frequently compared to Chaplin and also to Groucho Marx, using satire and trickery to undercut pompous upper-class types. Though his brilliant Spanish wordplay limited his success in English-speaking countries, he was a modern folk hero in Mexico—some called him the embodiment of the Mexican spirit—and his death in 1993 was followed by three days of national mourning. These Spanish-language films are subtitled in English.
