Alejandro Gamboa's El Tigre de Santa Julia (The Tiger of Santa Julia) is a tale of the title folk character. Miguel Rodarte stars as El Tigre who joins the army in his twenties. He creates a life-long enemy in Calleja (Adalberto Parra) when Tigre ignores Calleja's order to shoot striking workers. After deserting the military, El Tigre ends up in Santa Julia and gains a reputation as a thief, thanks in part to writer Nando (Fernando Lujan) supporting him in the papers. The authorities, with Calleja's help, continue to pursue El Tigre.
