We had many things against us because suddenly the press said ‘Hey, who is going to see this movie when we have free melodramas on television? because it is the typical story of the poor man with the rich,’” he recalled then, however the actor was pleased with the results of the film that to date continues to be a source even of memes and references for the generation of that time.

“But it turned out to be a hit, and it was a very big platform for all of us who participated in that film, now Martha Higareda is who she is, Poncho Herrera, Luis Fernando, Ximena Sariñana… we were a group of kids and we wanted to tell a story and we were making movies,” recalled Hernández.
