A lavish musical vehicle for the immensely popular comic genius Eddie Cantor, THE KID FROM SPAIN is directed by the brilliant Leo McCarey (DUCK SOUP, THE AWFUL TRUTH, RUGGLES OF RED GAP, MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW) and boasts choreography by the legendary Busby Berkeley just before he hit his

hallucinatory stride (42ND STREET, GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933, DAMES). This is Eddie Cantor at his best!

After being tossed out of school, Ricardo (Robert Young) invites his college roommate, Eddie (Eddie Cantor), to his home in Mexico. Their trip becomes a necessity when bank robbers mistake Eddie for their getaway driver, the only person who can identify them. Once they are south of the border,

mistaken identity strikes again. This time Eddie is thought to be the offspring of a legendary matador and is forced into the bull ring, though Ricardo has arranged for him to face a tame animal that will stop its charge upon command. However, a rough character involved in one of the story's many

subplots substitutes a considerably less docile bull and hilarity results as Eddie does his best not to get gored.

THE KID FROM SPAIN is chock-full of laughs and boasts some fine songs, written mostly by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby who co-wrote the screenplay.
