El Fanfarron -- May 5, 2014

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone. Jorge Negrete was a popular actor and singer during the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema.  It used to be hard to see these movies in San Francisco.  Once we got UHF, I could catch some of them on Channel 14.  El fanfarrón: ¡Aquí llegó el valentón! was released in 1943.

I borrowed the poster from the wonderful blog If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There'd Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats (

When I was in grammar school, I was the narrator of a show and got to wear a charro outfit. That was probably the coolest I have ever looked.
