Coleccion Pedro Infante: Asi era Pedro Infante (DVD) (FS)
“Que me entierren con musica” This is a moving and exquisitely made tribute to the genius of Pedro Infante, a singer and actor who was so natural and convincing, one was, and still is, magically brought into his world by watching him on the screen. Other than a few home movies that show him at rest, director Ismael Rodriguez in this film mostly celebrates him through clips of the many films they did together, and they were surely some of the finest films ever made.
