• Short Summary

    Paul Rico and His Mexicans play a traditional Mexican tune on accordions.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Pathetone Presents - Another Popular Stage Band - PAUL RICO AND HIS MEXICANS".

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Various shots of Paul Rico and His Mexicans (of all ages, men and women - probably Rico's family) playing a traditional Mexican tune on accordions. All the musicians wear big Mexican hats. Several cutaways of life in Mexico - peasants at work in fields and along coast - good shots but very short.

    No mention of the name of the tune in paperwork - Denis Gifford lists it as 'March Espana'.
