The Illiterate One

El Analfabeto

Directed by Miguel M. Delgado
Mexico, 1961


Mexican film legend Cantinflas was a hilarious cross between Roberto Benigni and silent film star Buster Keaton. Here, the comedian plays an illiterate young man who receives a letter informing him that he’s inherited a large sum of money.
