According to biographers, of all the films Gardel made during his career "El Dia Que Mi Quieras" was his personal favorite. In 1935 he made both "Tango Bar" and "El Dia Que Mi Quieras" for Paramount in New York. The supporting players are the same and both films were written by Alfredo Le Pera, the lyricist with whom Gardel collaborated on dozens of tangos that have since become standards. The story, while a potboiler, has a more complex plot than usual.

In this story, Julio Argüelles (Gardel) is the scion of a wealthy Buenos Aires family. One dark night he packs his suitcase and runs away from home so that he can pursue his dream of becoming a singer. To avoid causing embarrassment to his family with a show business association, Julio changes his name from Argüelles to Quiroga. There are lots of challenges in Julio's career, notably the two buddies with whom he has formed a trio. As Julio tours the circuit, he meets and falls in love with a young dancer, Margarita (Rosita Morena). In a particularly memorable scene Julio and Margarita sit on a park bench and sing a lovely duet of the title song, "El Dia Que Mi Quieras."

When Julio decides he wants to marry Margarita, he goes to see his father who, among other things, objects to his son marrying a woman who is so far beneath them socially. Father and son break off all remaining ties; such things don't matter to a man in love. Julio and Margarita marry and have a little daughter, Marga. They should be perfectly happy and content, but Margarita has a mysterious illness that has left her weak and bedridden. Although Julio makes the rounds, he cannot find enough work to support the family. Margarita decides she will find work herself.

Format: DVD
"El Dia que me Quieras" (1935) ("The Day You Love Me") was filmed at NYC in January 1935. Later that year Carlos Gardel will die in an airplane accident.

The story is a classical melodrama scheme: young and rich aficionado singer, Julio, falls in love with beautiful professional dancer, Margarita. At the same time Julio's wealthy father is trying to create an economical alliance marrying his son an heir, to his competitor's daughter.

Obviously Julio will not comply with his father's plans and is expelled from his parent's house.

He marries his sweetheart but is unable to earn his life as a tango singer.

A girl is born to the couple but Margarita fells ill. Desperate Julio stole money from his father's coffer. Unfortunately this money is too late to save Margarita's life.

Around twenty years after Julio has attained fame and money and Marga his daughter is his partner and company's dancer.

As this IS a true melodrama a young and rich chap, Daniel, will fall in love with Marga and once again a strict father oppose the lover's plan.

Will story be repeated? Well let leave at least this little enigma to the viewers.

So the argument is not very original and the whole film is quite naïve, but ... there are two unforgettable Tangos sang by Gardel: the joyful love declaration "El Dia Que Me Quieras" and the mournful "Sus Ojos se Cerraron". Just those feature more than justify buying this DVD.

Gardel's fans and Tango lovers: do not let this musical time capsule go unnoticed!

Bought for my father who enjoys Gardels music. It always played in our home. Thought he might like a film. Both my father and mother who are in their 80s loved it very much. Thank you for the wonderful service

This man can belt-out a Tango better than anyone. The soundtrack on this movie is out of sync but it does not affect the artist voice. See it.
