La casa de los millones / La dama duende
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 shes 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.
