    I think this was the last movie that Pedro Infante filmed, but not the last one released.

    “Little nina” (app. 43:00)? Maria was 42, when this was shot … 🙂👍🤪

    Beautiful romance with its heart at the right place.

    Although Pedro Infante is looking an easy 10 years older than Maria he was actually 2 1/2 years younger. He died in a plane cash in the very same year this movie was released (1957) only 39 years old. Maria lived a happy life until 2002, when she died at 88.
