El Compadre Mendoza
(El Compadre Mendoza)

by Fernando DE FUENTES


During Mexican Revolution, the notable Rosalio Mendoza survives by making and winning favors from both factions, the governmental forces and Zapata’s Army. His hacienda welcomes everybody, and Mendoza is considered a good friend of his guests. He has fun flattering them both, changing their leaders portraits as they visit him. During a trip Mendoza meets the young Dolores and marries her. During the wedding feast, the Zapatistas prepare an ambush against the Federals. The romantic and humanist General Felipe Nieto saves his life and becomes his friend.
