What I liked about this film: The star of Andalusian song, the beautiful Carmen Vargas Lolita Sevilla has just arrived, and nearly every male in town—excluding, of course, the disapproving Don Cosme—is enamoured by her legs, her waist, her voice, her charm… oh, everything.

The solution, says the Delegate General to Don Pablo, is for the town to clean up its act. Representatives of the Marshall Plan will shortly be driving through the countryside, visiting the towns and bestowing their largesse.

There is a wonderful Austrian movie called India, marshalll we here would call a bromance! Equally opposed to the idea of bowing and scraping to the Americans is Don Luis, who comes from a long line of conquistadors who made it to America, only to end up being eaten by cannibalistic Indians.
New comments Popular comments. The Americans—those rich people with their plentiful dollars—are assisting in a post-war reconstruction of Europe the European Recovery Programmore commonly known as the Marshall Plan.
Ironically, the film missed out on a Cannes prize when jury member Edward G Robinson complained of its anti-Americanism.
So there are hardly any movies with strong themes with humour. In Austria and Germany, one hardly find movies like these in the 50s and 60s. Will keep an eye out bienvenidl it. I was, obviously, very grateful.
