The Gay Desperado 1936
Ida Lupino and Metropolitan Opera star tenor, Nino Martini, star in this classic musical comedy directed by the great Rouben Mamoulian (Applause, Queen Christina and Love Me Tonight). After watching an American gangster film, Pablo Braganza, a fierce Mexican bandit (Leo Carrillo), is inspired to reorganize his outlaw gang to Chicago standards. Also a music lover, he kidnaps the great opera star Chivo (Martini) because he likes his voice. When Braganza learns that two hold-up victims are actually a wealthy young man and his fiancee, crossing the Mexican border to elope, he kidnaps them both in hopes of getting a healthy ransom. The groom-to-be, interested only in saving his own skin, escapes, leaving Chivo and lovely Jane (played by the wonderful Ida Lupino) to fall in love.
