  • Runtime: 1 hr. 37 min.
  • Genres: Comedy
  • Cast:Julio Ahuet.


Sombrero des Tres Picos (Three Cornered Hat) is based on the classic 18th-century Spanish stage comedy of the same name. Director Juan Bustilo Oro does a masterful job adapting playwright Pedro Antonio de Alarcon's five-act farce into a compact 97 minutes. The story involves a shameless roue who uses his lofty position as King's deputy as a means of meeting scores of delectable damsels. His wife tries to catch her husband in the act, to no avail. The "hero's" Waterloo comes when he attempts to kidnap a bewitching beauty who proves to be more than his match. Joaquin Pardave and Sofia Alvarez deliver polished performances as, respectively, the rake and the enchantress. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
