Masquerade in Mexico (1945) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Dorothy Lamour, Arturo de Cordova, Patric Knowles, Ann Dvorak, George Rigaud

Directed by Mitchell Leisen



Print: black/white

Runtime: 96 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



The Technicolor musical Masquerade in Mexico is Mitchell Leisen's remake of his own

Midnight. Stranded in Mexico City without a dime, glamorous Angel O'Reilly (Dorothy

Lamour) is rescued by wealthy Thomas Grant (Patric Knowles). But Grant's motivations are

anything but altrustic. In order to get his wife Helen's (Ann Dvorak) mind off handsome

bullfighter Manolo Segovia (Arturo de Cordova), Grant passes Angel off as a Contessa at a

weekend party, reasoning that Segovia will switch his attentions to our heroine.

Screenwriter Karl Tunberg has added a jewel-theft angle to the original Edwin Justis

Mayer/Franz Spencer story, which improves things not at all. Masquerade in Mexico is

admittedly a handsomer production than Midnight, but the remake lacks the sparkle of the

original film's stars Claudette Colbert, Don Ameche, John Barrymore, Francis Lederer, Mary

Astor et. al.
