Feelin' Groovy

We visited Cuernavaca for an expatriate blog summit meeting several years ago - we don't remember exactly when, but before it became the government's favorite place to assassinate drug barons - and stayed at a hotel whose tv played an endless loop of a 1965 movie called Cuernavaca In Springtime, a so-bad-it's-good sex farce that really deserves a greater presence on YouTube than it currently enjoys. The first few minutes of this clip are priceless, since this band of hepcats seems to have wandered in from a Frankie & Annette film set in Malibu, not in Morelos, the home state of Emiliano Zapata. Every now and then Mexico defies the stereotypes.

Does it star Vicente Fernandez, the king of cheesy Mexican movies?

In the 60's and 70's Mexico made many movies which felt like a subtitled American movie.
