Description
 
Over at the Big Ranch was one of the earliest box-office successes of Mexico's Golden Era and the first to demonstrate that Latin American audiences expected Mexican movies from Mexico, not duplicates of Hollywood productions. As a precursor of the "charro film" and "comedia ranchera" genres, Out on the Big Ranch features singing cowboys, golden-hearted bandits, and beautiful senoritas. Popular radio singer Tito Guizar plays wandering ranch-hand Jose Francisco, who falls in love with duckling-turned-swan Cruz (Esther Fernandez). It's a shame the owner of Rancho Grande also has designs on her. In Spanish with English subtitles.  Fernando De Fuentes---Mexico---1936---95 mins.
