Movie Night: Los Tres Huastecos

Last night I caught up on another movie classic from the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema: Los Tres Huastecos (1948), starring Pedro Infante and Blanca Estela Pavón. 

The article I posted the other day about Cantinflas gave a good description of Pedro Infante and Cantinflas: "While leading man Pedro Infante represented Mexico's self-image as a brave, good-looking, velvet-voiced hero, Cantinflas reflected the poorer side of Mexico that gets by on its wits."
