  • Welcome Mister Marshall!

    1952. Spain. Directed by Luis García Berlanga. With José Isbert, Lolita Sevilla. The run-down Castilian village of Villar del Río rouses itself from slumber at the news that Americans representing the Marshall Plan are due to visit. The mayor, eager to snare a hefty slice of economic aid, prepares to welcome "Mr. Marshall" with toasts of lemonade and sangria. Persuaded by a passing entertainment agent that the village's dried-up fountain, black-shrouded women, and listless men will never attract the Americans' benefaction, the town sets about preparing another kind of welcome. In Spanish; English subtitles. 78 min.
