Released a few weeks before legendary Argentine singer and star Carlos Gardel died in a plane accident, El día que me quieras is considered by many to be his greatest film.  Produced by Gardel’s own company and distributed by Paramount, the film narrates the vicissitudes of a singer who marries a dancer against his father’s wishes.

 

DCP, b/w, 82 min.  Director: John Reinhardt.  Cast: Carlos Gardel, Rosita Moreno, Tito Lusiardo, Manuel Peluffo.

 

 

Así cantaba Carlos Gardel  (Argentina, 1935)

 

Before signing his first contract with Paramount in 1931, Carlos Gardel starred in 10 sound shorts.  Each one featured Gardel singing one of his songs.  After the singer’s death, the surviving shorts were compiled under the title Así cantaba Carlos Gardel.

 

DCP, b/w, 35 min.  Director: Eduardo Morera.  Cast: Carlos Gardel, Inés Murray, César Fiaschi, Francisco Canaro, Arturo de Nava.
