Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed in 1941, the Mexican La Gallina Clueca (Cackling Hen) received its first US showing three years later. Sara Garcia stars as Teresa, who when first seen on screen is travelling cross-country in a rickety jalopy with her children. The car breaks down, whereupon good-samaritan truck driver Angel Chapa (Domingo Soler) comes to the rescue. Taking an immediate liking to Chapa, Teresa later establishes a thriving business enterprise with the likeable lug. They fall in love, but Teresa is still married to a long-missing "someone else." The film's ending isn't too happy for the absentee husband, but it's peaches and cream for our hero and heroine.
