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.

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. .

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.

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!

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!

Some friends and I saw this film back in the early 1960s, when it was first released, and we really enjoyed it. Besides providing another chance to see the wonderful comic actor Cantinflas in an English language film, there were many wonderful cameos by some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Judy Garland didn't appear onscreen but she recorded a song for the film; the following year she finally appeared in her first film in seven years: "Judgement at Nuremburg." I remember that we enjoyed see Shirley Jones in the film; she was always a pretty and very sweet lady, who appeared in several major musical films and who later had quite a following when she starred on the television series "The Partridge Family."

One can only hope that the film will be available again on DVD. There was apparently a limited release of the film. Undoubtedly, the critics weren't kind to the film, which had a rather lightweight story, and it didn't do terribly well at the box office. Nevertheless, it would likely be wonderful to see again, providing yet another "time capsule" of Hollywood's golden age.

Here's another very entertaining film from 1960 that Columbia (Sony Releasing) has forgotten about. The original running time when first released in roadshow reserved seat format was 195 minutes. That version played New York, Los Angeles and a few other larger cities. Columbia then cut almost 40 minutes from the film for the rest of country and that version is the only version available. However, I'm sure that the 40 missing minutes can be found in the Sony vaults somewhere. This picture needs to be restored to it's original length and released on DVD and Blu Ray. The problem is will Sony incur the expense of doing so.
