Trivia: The movie is in public domain, so it's played frequently
in its original Spanish during the holiday season. As a result (as strange
as it may seem) it has become, for many Spanish-speaking TV viewers world
wide, a holiday tradition as cherished as viewing It's A Wonderful Life
and other holiday classics is for English-speaking Americans.
