Event Description

La casa de los millones  (Argentina, 1942)

 

This light-hearted comedy built around malapropisms, puns, and slapstick stars Bozán as an ill-tempered nouveau riche widow who has

driven away all but two of her servants, the long-suffering butler, and a new hire who turns the tables upside down in the mansion.

 

DCP, b/w, 93 min. Director: Luis Bayón Herrera. Cast: Luis Sandrini, Olinda Bozán, Héctor Quintanilla, Francisco López Silva.

 

La dama duende  (Argentina, 1945)

 

A young widow, facing the dismal prospect of either a convent or a marriage of convenience, sets out to conquer a handsome officer by pretending she’s a duende, a ghost.  Voted the best Argentine film of 1945, La dama duende is a beautifully crafted comedy of errors.

 

DCP, b/w, 101 min.  Director: Luis Saslavsky. Cast: Manuel Collado, Helena Cortesina, Alberto de Mendoza, Enrique Diosdado, Delia Garcés.
