My Dear Tom Mix / Don't Fool With Love (2 Pack)
My Dear Tom Mix
Joaquina has never married, but she makes up for it by going to the movies, where she lets her imagination run away with her. When her young nephew comes for a visit, she introduces him to her fantasy world, in which the actors easily become the characters they play, and vice versa. But, she takes her fantasies too far when she decides to do something about the marauding bandits that plague her small town. She writes to legendary western
hero Tom Mix - the King of the Cowboys - imploring him to ride to the rescue on Tony the Wonder Horse to save her village.
Developed form a short story by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, My Dear Tom Mix features a cast of Mexico's veteran stars and character actors, including Ana Ofelia Murguia (The Garden of Eden), Federico Luppi (Pan's Labyrinth) and heartthrob Eduardo Palomo (Wild Heart) as Tom Mix. This heartwarming drama reveals the charm of the silent cinema when movies were truly a universal language that transcended class, age, and nationality.
