Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Singer Trini Lopez proved he could act in The Dirty Dozen. He went on to show that he could carry a picture in Antonio, though precious few filmgoers got the chance to see it. Lopez plays a poverty-stricken potter in a South American village. Enter Larry Hagman, an American oilman on the lam from his divorce lawyer. Rather than have his expensive car fall into the hands of his ex-wife, Hagman gives the vehicle to Lopez. The gift unduly complicates Lopez' life, compelling him to travel over hill and dale to return the car to Hagman. This charming little morality play was directed by Claudio Guzman, who'd previously helmed several I Dream of Jeannie episodes costarring Hagman in the 1960s.
