single dad raises his daughter and an orphan in the midsts of fairs
8 September 2009 | by zorrito1953See all my reviews

This has to be M.A.P.'s worst movie... and it's not her fault. Though Pons started out as a very hot rumbera in the early forties, she was "tamed" by the late fifties, early sixties. In this movie, she is a daughter of a single dad (Fernando Fernández) who follows fairs (carnivals), gambling and drinking. He takes in an orphan boy and the children are raised as siblings. When the children reach their adulthood, they become singers and lovers. However, Tin- Tán's skit and the battle of the composers (Cuco Sánchez and José Alfredo Jiménez) out shadow Pons' and Roberto Rivera's performances, the main protagonists! They could have easily given Pons more and better singing/dancing skits. As for Roberto, he is no Pedro Infante. Difficulties arise when one of the Maldonado brothers is killed after a card game. The Maldonados wait for their opportunity of revenge.

What made this movie a bust is that many scenes are repeated multiple times throughout the movie, making the viewer seem ignorant. Actually, it becomes very annoying after the first repeat. I blame the director and the editor for being stupid and not creative. The other negative thing is that the actress that played the very young "María Luisa" is NOT credited. I would like to know who she is to see if she continued her acting career into adulthood.

The only reason I give this movie a 2-star is because Tin-Tán's skit and the composer dual picked it up from a 1-star.
