Mario “Cantinflas” Moreno reprises the role of Patrolman #777 for the third time, a character first introduced in 1941’s El Gendarme Desconocido. Bungling, fast-talking Patrolman 777 Diogenes Bravo (Cantinflas) finds himself in the middle of several humorous situations, including a domestic dispute, the delivery of a newborn child, and an investigation of a robbery at a high-society party. The numerous situations culminate with a major conflict between a group of prostitutes and a drug gang – where he ultimately puts his career on the line. This film is one of 33 cinematic collaborations between longtime director Miguel M. Delgado and Cantinflas, which include previous Plaza Classic Film Festival showings of El Bombero Atomico (his other appearance as 777), El Bolero De Raquel and El Padrecito.
