Storyline

The Mexican Revolution is on its way when six brave peasants, known as "Los Leones de San Pablo", decide to join Pancho Villa's army and help end the suffering in their community by assisting in the struggle. After several battles and valiant heroics, the original group is eventually reduced to the leader Tiburcio Maya (Frausto) and young Becerrillo (Vallarino). When Becerrillo is infected by smallpox, Villa orders Tiburcio to kill him and burn the corpse. After reluctantly doing his duty, Tiburcio is ordered to leave the army, and returns home.

Alternate Versions

On August 21, 1982, Mexican TV Channel 13 aired a version that featured a previously unreleased ending. It's not clear if this ending (Pancho Villa's murdering Tiburcio Maya and taking his son to the Revolution) was censored by the government or it was cut by De Fuentes himself in order to give the film a different pace. The original ending shows Tiburcio Maya defecting Pancho Villa's army after burning the corpse of "Becerrillo". See more »

Well, I remember a different ending...
9 June 2018 | by morlantdkSee all my reviews

I was lucky enough to watch this film on TV and the digitally mastered and renewed version on DVD produced by the UNAM (Mexico's Autonomous National University) finishes when Tiburcio is left after he shot Becerrillo because he suffered from measles. Villa fears Tiburcio because he believes he has measles, too, and tells him to wait there, but Tiburcio walks along the railroad.

Then, in the TV version I watched, after this Tiburcio returns home and goes back to his peasant life, but Villa finds him and tells him to join the army again. Tiburcio declines because he says he needs to take care of his family and that is the only thing worth in his life. Villa says nothing and enters another room where Tiburcio's wife and children are and he shoots them, believing that now Tiburcio will rejoin his ranks, but the peasant gets a gun and tries to kill Villa, but his escorts prevent that by shooting Tiburcio. After that, Villa says it is too bad that such a good warrior did not want to continue struggling and leaves that house.
