Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Filmmaker Emilio Fernandez' second directorial effort was the thrill-a-minute Soy Puro Mexicano (I'm a Mexican Too) Pedro Armendariz stars as a fugitive bandit chieftain whose long-dormant patriotism is aroused when Mexico enters WWII. Hiding from the authorities in a fancy hacienda, Armendariz discovers that the place is a beehive of Nazi activities. Aligning himself with gorgeous Allied agent Raquel Rojas, Armendariz decimates the bad guys, one by one. Errol Flynn had nothing on this hero! Overlong and somewhat shabbily produced, Soy Puro Mexicano gets by on its sheer energy.
