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 (http://tsutpen.blogspot.com/).
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.
