    Based on Josephine Niggli's novel Mexican Village, MGM's Sombrero is a veritable maze of Latin-American romantic complications. At the core of the film is a long-standing feud between two Mexican communities. The young lovers, Pepe (Ricardo Montalban) and Eufemia (Pier Angeli), must patch up the rift before they'll be allowed to march down the aisle. Offsetting this lighthearted complication is the sombre tale of Alejandro Gastillo (Vittorio Gassman in his Hollywood debut), who on his deathbed begs Maria (Yvonne De Carlo) to marry him despite the animosity between their families. Highlights include a frantic flamenco dance by the one and only Jose Greco. Had it been made a few years earlier, when South-of-the-Border films were all the rage, Sombrero might have performed better at the box office. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
