Playing the guitar while riding a fancy-stepping house. Ah, sigh. "Amor de los dos."

Thanks for the Pedro Infante You Tube. It made me wonder if they had dubbing ability in those movies from Mexico's so-called Golden Age. That is, could they insert a recording of his singing and playing guitar into the scene while he lip synched. If it's real, it's quite a feat!

A few years ago I read a very entertaining book called Loving Pedro Infante by Denise Chavez. The protagonist lives in a small New Mexico town with lots of bilingual inhabitants. She and her best friend do Pedro marathons, watching his movies and fantasizing about having a man like him. Great fun!

Very Cool!

I understand that "A Toda Maquina," the Pedro Infante movie that Jaime Camil and What's-his-name parodied on La Fea Mas Bella (remember the singing-while-riding-motorcycles scene?) was finally released on DVD, and subsequently on Netflix... Have you gotten around to watching it?

Hi Novelera and Alma, I wish I had the knowledge you do! Ridiculously, the only Pedro Infante movie I've seen is "Tizoc," in which he plays a simple (as in somewhat daft but in tune with nature, the birds and winds) Indian in love with a big breasted white girl. She dies with arrows in her as he carries her into, or out of, a cave, as I recall.
