I’m infinitely grateful to the Virgin of San Juan for being able to participate, along with my idol Santo, the Silver Mask, in one of his classic movies “The Mummies of Guanajuato”. I was an extra and was hired to play one of the mummies. Although my face wasn’t seen because of the mask put on me and señor Santo hit me, I remained very happy for living this experience.

When I was very young, I had a beautiful experience of meeting Pedro Infante in person. He was shooting a movie in a few blocks from my house. Every day I was going to look him acting, and one day, after the filming, he came to me and gave me his sombrero. I thank Saint James the Apostle for having lived this moment which I never forget and for having this memory about my idol.

I dedicate this retablo to the Virgin Protectress thanking her for I finally got an automatic 8-mm Kodak camera. It has an electronic sensor which tells the exposure automatically. Scene by scene, I can shoot films with rich colors without any worries. The f/1.6 lens gives a bright bokeh, and with every roll of film I get up to 40 scenes of normal duration. I really enjoy my camera.
