Item description for Pedro Infante: El idolo inmortal (Spanish Edition) by Jose Ernesto Infante...

Pedro Infante es el recuerdo puntual de una de las figuras mas importantes dentro de la tradicion musical de Mexico, convertido en un idolo de autentico culto, que, como todos los mitos, fue cobrando forma y fama a traves de elementos reales, entre los que su origen humilde y las peripecias de su ascenso resultaron fundamentales para identificarse con las multitudes. Era la personificacion de un exito rural, en una epoca en la que triunfar en la gran ciudad era una alegre aventura que aun podia consumarse. Hablan aqui tanto la memoria como las imagenes, reuniendo lo que la tradicion popular conserva como recuerdos dispersos de esta personalidad unica. Este libro brinda una travesia por las mejores nostalgias de mitad del siglo XX que todavia no conocen la caducidad, porque Pedro Infante aun es el referente obligado del galante y cumplidor "Pepe el Toro", que, en lance de amores, muchos quisieran ser y de la pareja ideal que no pocas "Chorreadas" quisieran encontrar. Pedro Infante, one of the most important figures of the Mexican musical tradition, has become a true idol. Like most legends, his fame grew over time as factual elements such as his lowly origin and the outstanding circumstances of his rise to stardom identified him more and more with the masses. This book collects memories and pictures of this unique personality, kept alive thanks to popular tradition. It's a veritable trip down memory lane through the first half of the 20th century, where memories of him have yet to fade since scores of men still want to be as gallant as "Pepe el Toro" and many "Chorreadas" dream of finding a partner like Infante.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pedro Infante: El idolo inmortal (Spanish Edition)?

Pedro Infante: El Idolo Inmortal  Dec 22, 2007
Jose Ernesto Infante Quintanilla has made evident the true spirit of a man whom has become the quintessence of Mexico--Mexico's most loved actor in its golden era of movies, Pedro Infante, breathes anew through Infante Quintanilla's crisp writing. The work is well formulated, journaling the icon's life, films, and discography; although, I would have preferred the book be written in three volumes: Pedro Infante the man, Pedro Infante the actor, and Pedro Infante the singer; considering, 6, 205 of the 14, 175 + days of Infante's life comprised his career, I'm certain that a great amount of information is yet to be shared with the world since Infante has and still is serving as a roll model for many generations to follow; even the most mundane aspects of Pedro Infante's days are the fodder that gives purpose to a world of incongruities and chaotic confusion. May I as one of the many that constitute his enduring and loving public, some day have the privilege and honor of reliving the Infante's whole essence.
