Movie jackpot

After the parade, at the Oak Springs branch library there wasn't luck with books, but we found a cache of Mexican movies from the golden age. We've already watched a noir item called Lady Temptation (1947) and a beautiful print of a Jorge Negrete movie called No Basta Ser Charro (1945). K. had never paid attention before to El Chicote. NinĂ³n Sevilla is the rumbera in the first movie, which has several nightclub scenes, including a couple with Agustin Lara. This movie has many renditions of Solamente Una Vez, an all-time favorite song.
