One Mad Kiss
Cast & Crew
[The following plot summary is based on the Spanish-language version of this film, El precio de un beso .] Estrada, the chief government official of the region, has put a price on the head of José Savedra for causing the local people to rebel against his tax collectors. Dancer Rosario Montes also thinks that the tax levied against her "Fandango Café" is excessive and is not inclined to pay. With typical bravura, José posts notices all over the town that, on his next visit to the café, he will kiss Rosario on the lips. With Estrada and the local police present, the intrepid joker, disguised as a waiter, fulfills his boast. Realizing that there is a relationship between José and Rosario, Estrada writes a note to José in Rosario's name, arranging a rendezvous at her house, and arrests him when he keeps the appointment. When Rosario discovers Estrada's trick, she pretends to dislike José and obtains permission from Estrada to repay the affront of José's kiss with her own traitor's kiss. However, Rosario takes advantage of her visit to José's cell to pass him a pistol, which he uses to secure his freedom. As Rosario and José escape on horseback, the governor of the territory arrests Estrada, charging him with abuse of power.
