The great Mexican director Ismael Rodriquez brought two idols of the Mexican screen together during the mid 1950's, Maria Felix and Pedro Infante, to create an instant classic. This is an excellent film that was filmed in the mountanious area of Oaxaca with magnificent footage of the natural beauty. Pedro Infante is Tizoc, a naive Indian peasant who has a penchant for animals but kills them for their hides with his primitive heaving of a stone in a sling method. His accuracy is astounding and makes the other Indians jealous and he becomes the butt of their jokes and all the other villagers seem to dislike this very likeable character. His accuracy eventually wins the favor of the rich merchant who buys his hides but not before his daughter arrives from Mexico City. The lovely Maria Felix is the rich mans daughter and immediately notices Tizoc. Tizoc meets her and runs away because he thinks she is the virgin Mary come to life from the statue in the church. He gives his simpleton explanation to the priest who scoffs at his story and takes him back and convinces him it is only a resemblance. Tizoc is heroic in his quest to prove his love for Maria Felix. The story proceeds with many touching moments as the two stars strike up a tragic love affair. If you speak Spanish the original language version is preferred over the dubbed version, there is always something lost in a translation. This was Pedro Infante's second to the last film made and earned him a postumous award for best male actor in the Berlin Film Festival. He is terrific and even sings three songs, a twist on the singing cowboy, he is the singing Indio. The film also won the Ariel(Oscar) in Mexcio for best picture and music. One of the highlights is the cinematography which captures the colors of the folkloric clothes worn by the Indians.Read more ›

The description line says "dubbed in Spanish"? As if it were another Hollywood movie prepared for the Mexican audience. Nothing like it. Instead, this is actually one of the most famous films of the classic Mexican golden age of motion pictures. Starring María Felix and Pedro Infante who sings three songs - it does not get much better than this.
However, I am not going to buy these classics on VHS. The DVD medium has much more to offer, especially in languages. Some of Pedros classic movies are already out on DVD, and they give you the option to add Spanish or English subtitles to the film. As the technical quality of these films is not very good, and as much colloquial language and slang is used, the lines are sometimes hardly audible for a non-native Spanish speaker, so you will need the subtitles. If you know some Spanish, why not try reading the lines in the film's original language? Some of the DVD versions even include original trailers and "behind the scenes" footage. Check out "Los tres huastecos" for instance.
So come on people, let us keep telling companies to release the films on DVD, and THEN we buy them.

THE MOVIE IN ITSELF WAS GREAT, AWESOME, A CLASSIC YOU SHOULD HAVE AS PART OF YOUR VIDEO LIBRARY. HOWEVER, THE COPY I PURCHASED FROM VIVEROS, PARTNER OF AMAZON, REALLY SUCKED. IT APPEAR TO BE A BOOTLEG COPY OF A DVD. VERY DARK, COULD NOT SEE THE PICTURE. FOR FUTURE REFERENCE, BUY STRICTLY FROM AMAZON AND NOT ITS AFFFILIATES, CAN'T BE GUARANTEE THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT VERSES AMAZON, ALWAYS CARRIES ORIGINALS.
