The Kid from Spain

  • Film
  • Musicals
Eddie Cantor's talent is for those of an antique taste, but this extravagant Goldwyn production has a few other things going for it, most notably a couple of blatant routines choreographed for the Goldwyn Girls by Busby Berkeley (the chorus line is said to include Lucille Ball, Jane Wyman, Betty Grable and Paulette Goddard, but you'll need sharp eyes to spot them). The plot has Cantor and his college buddy Young innocently caught up in a bank robbery and hiding out in Mexico, where Cantor is mistaken for a famous matador. No prizes for guessing where he ends up.
