Cuatro corazones (Four Hearts). 1939. Argentina. Directed by Enrique Santos Discépolo. Screenplay by Discépolo, Carlos Schlieper. With Enrique Santos Discépolo, Gloria Guzmán, Irma Córdoba. In Spanish; English subtitles. 80 min.

“A fascinating glimpse of 1930s Buenos Aires and its vibrant show-business demimonde, Four Hearts combines the raucous spirit of the local theater revue with the influence of the Hollywood musical comedy. Enrique Santos Discépolo, author of some of the most pessimistic lyrics in all of tango, appears here in his lightest comic role, and the irrepressible Gloria Guzmán and Tania somehow make zany situations out of timeworn conventions” (Edgardo Cozarinsky).
