Can't return it I guess.
julio c henriques
The script was written by Alfredo Le Pera, the lyricist who collaborated with Gardel on some of the greatest tango standards every written.

And there are no subtitles, not in Spanish nor English.

It's a sad day in 1935. The passenger ship Gneisenau is about to sail from the port of Buenos Aires, and Ricardo Fuentes is reluctantly leaving his homeland. As he looks out over the ship's rail he spots his friend, Puccini. Puccini has come to see him off and bring him the few pesos that remain from the sale of Fuentes' home after his debts have been paid. Fuentes explains in song ("Por Una Cabeza") how he came to lose his fortune by taking chances on women and horses. Now Fuentes has to leave his beloved Buenos Aires and seek his fortune in Barcelona.

Although he says he has learned his lesson, Fuentes is soon victimized by The Thunderbolt when he sees the lovely, young Laura Montalván board the ship with her entourage. Mrs Montalván has no known lovers or protectors, only her three dogs that accompany her everywhere. It's love at first sight for Fuentes, and he wastes no time finding an opportunity to meet her and let her know his feelings. Laura has no interest in Fuentes and makes short work of him. But as their paths continue to cross Fuentes learns that Laura Montalván has a dark past and a shameful secret.

The story has crime, mystery, accusations, tears, recrimination, close calls, entrepreneurship, singing, dancing and, since this is a 1930's move, in the end there is redemption. It's a fine little morality tale of the sort that was rare when this was filmed almost 75 years ago and, regrettably, is unknown today.

Ultimately though this is a vehicle for Gardel to sing, dance and look elegantly cool in a variety of settings. He goes from suit to morning coat to tuxedo to tangero making each change with graceful ease. Always there is The Voice, a rich baritone that caresses each lyric.

"Tango Bar" (1935) was filmed at USA in 1935. Later that year Carlos Gardel will die in an airplane accident, truncating the planned movie star career within the Paramount, a follow-up of his brilliant tango singer lifework.
This was the first of the two Gardel's movies directed by John Reinhardt & co-starred with Rosita Moreno.

The story starts when Ricardo Fuentes a disheartened tango singer flies from Buenos Aires after paying his gambling debts and possibly with some love injures too.
The same cruise ship is boarded by another fugitive, the mysterious and lovely Laura Montalvan escaping from her dark past.
Their paths will cross and continue crossing after arriving to Barcelona.

The film is a typical product of the 30's quite naïve & elemental nevertheless giving room to Gardel's extraordinary voice & charm singing some unforgettable Tangos: the classical "Por una Cabeza" ((Loosing a Horserace) by a Head) where the singer lament his bad luck at the races & love affairs and "Arrabal Amargo" (Bitter Suburb) staged at the Tango Bar of the title. Gardel sings two more songs: "Lejana Tierra Mia" (My Faraway Country) alluding the Spaniards immigrants homesickness very similar to that of the Irish people who came to America; "Los Ojos de mi Moza" (The Eyes of my Girl) is a standard love song.
This features more than justify buying this DVD.

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

This is a classic movie. But this particular DVD should be avoided at all cost. Image quality is poor, the sound is scratchy. And there are no subtitles, not in Spanish nor English. Tip: Make sure the "Tango Bar" DVD copy you buy says "English subtitles."

You will see the fabulous Gardel as he was. Quite impressive. The Cary Grant type of the tango world. But he can really sing. Good actor ,too.

If you're not from a Latin American country you've probably never heard of Carlos Gardel but Latina ladies swooned over him in the 1930s. He's not much of an actor, and the script is rather silly (structured for song opportunities rather than coherence) but when he saunters on stage, with his fedora tipped over one brow, and goes into a performance of a tango song, you've gotten something of the essence of the 1930s as Latin America experienced them. This is an OK reissue, nothing fabulous but quite serviceable and as watchable as most Turner Classic Movie broadcasts.

I am a fan of Carlos Gardel, so I enjoyed this film very much. Naturally, being a very old movie, the quality was not what we are used to now, but the music compensated for it.
