Yes, Cantinflas. Got a Golden Globe for his performance. He was a very, very popular Mexican comedian. Most Americans only knew him from this and Pepe, but he was a super big deal in Mexico. Robin Williams level, maybe even bigger. Grew up on the Border and we watched a ton of Cantinflas movies back in the day.
I liked the gargoyle shot, too, but it made me sad due to Notre Dame tragic fire.
Also want to like this new version, but the jury is still out. Hoping future eps get better? We'll see.
