Each year for several years running, Cantinflas, one of Mexico's most popular and beloved comics, came out with a new film, and Sube y Baja is his 1959 offering. As in most of these films, Cantinflas plays a set role or roles, such as a doctor or a priest. In this case, he is the model sports "hero." He is a football player and a speedboat racer, also a rich man and a poor one, and in all cases, he keeps to the character he developed long ago -- that of the double-talking, fast-talking, funny-talking slippery man who confounds everyone and keeps Spanish-speaking audiences laughing and coming back for more each year. As in his other films, his intriguing looks and "adorable" attitude attract women with no problem.
