Helmed by Ismael Rodríguez, this comic tale stars Pedro Infante as Ricardo del Valle, whose career choice lands him in trouble after he disregards the wishes of his father (Juan José Martínez Casado) — who wants his son to become a lawyer. Without telling his family, aspiring actor Ricardo accepts a part in a movie but is later charged with sabotaging the film and hauled into court … where he’s forced to act as his own attorney.
