The Extra

El extra

Directed by Miguel M. Delgado
Mexico, 1962
Comedy, Drama, Family


Cantinflas is a man who hangs around the studios and helps anyone who needs his advice while at the same time envisioning his own versions of how certain scenes should be shot. Both angles provide ample opportunities for very witty, subtle barbs at the foibles of the industry.
