Clavillazo was not frequently associated with a given director, as other Mexican comedians: Tin Tan had Gilberto Martínez Solares and Cantinflas worked almost exclusively with Miguel M. Delgado. Clavillazo was directed by many filmmakers, and although Martínez Solares was in charge of several of Clavillazo's finest comedies, he was simultaneously making Tin Tan's best work, so Clavillazo came second in his list of priorities. In this one the comic worked for Alejandro Galindo, a respected director who made a few classics during the golden era of Mexican cinema, including "Campeón sin corona" (Champion Without Crown), "Una familia de tantas" (One of Many Families"), "Esquina, bajan...!" (Corner Stop) and "Espaldas mojadas" (Wet Backs), or popular melodramas as "Tu hijo debe nacer" (Your Son Has to Be Born), all with strong social comments. Galindo also made comedies, and in 1951 he had a big success with a parody of the "red menace" in "Dicen que soy comunista" (They Say I Am a Communist), starring Resortes, another popular funny man. But eight years later, as hard as everybody tried, "Piernas de oro" seems too elaborate for a populist sports film: it was largely shot outdoors, but for the comedy details of the central bicycle race Galindo relied too much on back projection and studio shooting. At 92 minutes it feels like an endless race to the finish line, with reiterative xenophobic jokes and a character running amok shooting at Clavillazo with a pistol (luckily with no aim at all), while nobody takes action, unless we as spectators stop watching. Not surprisingly by the end of the 1950s the troubles of the post-war Mexican cinema would go into a more profound crisis, until a new generation of filmmakers "saved the day".
