5.0 out of 5 stars It was full of laughter and tears. November 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Pepe, Is one of my all time favorite movies. Growing up I would watch him with my mother who is 87 years old. It made me cry and laugh at the same time. They just don't make movie like that anymore.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would like to have this in DVD July 21, 2006
Format:VHS Tape
I admit that this probably isn't a great movie, but I've many great memories of vewing the movie Pepe several times at the theater. The music was fun and there were many Cameos of some wonderful entertainers who are no longer with us. I would certainly enjoy reliving some memories with Pepe on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to the basics of song and dance and comedy May 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Recently saw this movie on cable encore. wonderful music, dancing and comedy. Cantiflas the sidekick in Around the World, probably Shirley Jones first, Dan Daley always good. The movie is full of cameos by the "Rat Pack" Sinatra et al. 1961 issue but they don't make them like this anymore, unfotunately. Almost 2 hrs of sheer deligful entertainment. .

Pepe is a flimsy story meant to showcase a bunch of Columbia's stars...and it succeeds. Cameos abound and it's fun to "count the stars" as they pass through the story line - especially Greer Garson playing herself, as Mrs. Buddy Fogelson! Most of these stars are gone now, and it's a pleasure seeing them in their heyday. Cantinflas is his usual original self, and the music is fun too! The downside is that the video looks as if it has been copied too many times. Come on, Columbia/Sony, re-release it in its original form. On DVD if possible!

I consider that "Pepe" is a very good film. I have seen it at least 4 times, but it was long time ago. I would like to have it in DVD version.

The last time I watched Pepe I was very young. This movie was entertaining, funny, and in good taste. I think most everyone will enjoy this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Questions of Pepe March 2, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
George Sidney, one of Hollywood's most underrated directors, never made an awful film, but this one comes close, mostly due to its insufferably cloying use of Cantinflas--one of Mexico's smartest, wittiest movie stars ever--but here you'd think he was a moron, a smiling bobblehead of Mexican folk wisdom and simplicity.

Indeed Cantinflas, as "Pepe," whom you might call the original "horse whisperer," is incredibly good in the movie, which makes it a drag to have to give it a big two thumbs down for political reasons. He's not playing a Stepin Fetchit EXACTLY, and in fact he's always seen as wiser than the silly norteamericanos who try to patronize him, but the whole thing about he loves the horse so much he calls him "my son" (not just once but approximately forty or forty-five times) leaves you grating your teeth.

And also it seems to emasculate Cantinflas who was, like Elvis, super sexy. Here the movie pokes fun of the way his pants slide low, low, low down his hips. Au contraire, such ease with undress is one reason why Cantinflas is sex appeal on two legs! And yet through the whole movie you don't even know if he's in love with Shirley Jones or is he just playing Sancho Panza hoping to get his master, the failed Hollywood director Ted Holt (Dan Dailey), into bed with la Jones--here playing a beat bohemian--and doing it rather well too -- of course she's always good no matter what she does, and George Sidney--who directed many glamor girls into performances of real depth and soul and originality, from Kim Novak to Ann-Margret--gives Shirley Jones what she never had elsewhere, a contemporary pizzazz, like street chic.

When she (or her double) dances in the underground nightclub with Michael Mickey Callan, my pulses were on fire!
