Last week we looked at the 1935 version of La Hija de Juan Simón with Angelillo and Carmen Amaya. In 1956 La Hija de Juan Simón was remade and this time featured Antonio Molina.
Gonzalo Delgrás, who directed the 1956 version of La Hija de Juan Simón, also directed Café de Chinitas from 1960.
Here is an introduction to La Hija de Juan Simón from RTVE Spanish television’s Cine de Barrio programme, which is hosted by Concha Velasco – she interviews Antonio Molina’s daughter, Mónica Molina, and it also includes a short interview of Antonio Molina, speaking about Angelillo.
