Le Chanteur de Mexico is a French film directed by Richard Pottier starring Luis Mariano and Bourvil, released in 1957. It was a screen version of Francis Lopez operetta that premiered at the Theatre du Chatelet on 15 December 1951.
"Francis Lopez composed for Le Chanteur de Mexico one of his best scores in which the arias integrate well into the atmosphere of the action; the airs were rapidly on everybodys lips: Mexico, Rossignol, Acapulco, Il est un coin de France, Maitechu, Quant on voit Paris den haut, Quant on est deux amis."
The operetta was revived in 2006 at the Theatre du Chatelet with a cast that included Ismael Jordi, Rossy de Palma, Jean Benguigui and Clotilde Courau.
