Popular South-of-the-Border recording artist Tito Guizar stars in the romantic semi-western Rancho Grande. Guizar plays a carefree charro who falls in love with beautiful senorita Esther Fernandez. His best friend Rene Cardona, unaware of Guizar's feelings towards Fernandez, seduces her himself. What follows requires our hero to do some heavy emoting, hardly a Guizar specialty but here carried off quite well. If the film is better directed than the usual run of Guizar vehicle, it's because Fernando De Fuentes was a better than usual director, as proven by his subsequent efforts. Rancho Grande was honored with an award at the 1938 Venice Film Festival.
