Synopsis

El Bolero de Raquel
The beloved Mexican funnyman Cantinflas stars in this comedy as a shoeshine man who, after the death of his best friend and fellow bootblack, is put in charge of arranging the man's funeral and caring for his young son. Needing to raise some money, the shoeshine man tries to get work at a night club, but his eccentric dance act soon raises the ire of Raquel, the club's star dancer, and Cantinflas is sent packing. He next tries his luck as a life guard at a luxurious resort hotel in Acapulco, though when he gets his first emergency call, it soon becomes obvious that he doesn't know the first thing about rescuing swimmers. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Su Excelencia
The beloved Mexican comedian Cantinflas stars in this satiric comedy which pokes fun at the power struggles of international politics. Lopitos (Cantinflas) is a humble but loyal citizen of the nation of Los Cocos, who holds down a job in the country's embassy, helping to process and distribute visas. Through a series of comical errors, Lopitos is named the ambassador of Los Cocos to a powerful international tribunal, where the nations of the world have either lined up behind the "Green" nations, led by the capitalist leader of Dolaronia (Jack Kelly), or the "Red" countries, whose figurehead is the prime minister of socialist Pepeslavia (Tito Rush). With the votes divided evenly between the Red and Green factions, it becomes clear that Lopitos' vote will sway the balance of political power around the world -- which makes simple Lopitos a very popular and powerful man. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
