The Mexican Toast to Love stars Irina Baronova as Russian-ballerina Yolanda Petrova. While making a tour of Mexico, Yolanda is squired by foreign-diplomat Don Carlos (Miguel Arenas), who agrees to save her parents from being shipped to Siberia if she'll marry him. The lady consents, though her true love is young military-cadet Julio (David Silva). Desperately unhappy, Yolanda enters into a suicide pact with Julio. As she raises a cup of poison to her lips, she is jolted back to reality by a surprise plot twist. Toast to Love is a remake of a 1940 Mexican film of nearly the same title. Not too successful dramatically, the film is at its best during the ballet scenes.
