Joselito: Viento

A few weeks ago I posted some spine-tingling yodeling from 1950s Spanish child star Joselito. Here is another lovely film scene starring the little powerhouse. The song is Viento (Wind), from the 1957 film Saeta del ruiseño (Song of the Nightingale).

Joselito is a wonderful performer, and there is also something strangely fascinating about these lighthearted and moralistic films made under the censorship of the Franco regime.
