Groovy Friday – Amor a Ritmo de Go Go

That’s Mexican film star Rosa Maria Vazquez front and center.


It’s Friday!

Here’s an extended clip from the Mexican film “Amor a Ritmo de Go Go”.  The title roughly translates as “Love That Go-Go Rhythm”.  That’s Mexican film star Rosa Maria Vazquez front and center.  She didn’t make a lot of films, but she was dynamite in the films she did make.  Wikipedia has this to say about her:

“A native of Tulancingo, Hidalgo, she made her film debut at the age of six in Emilio Fernández’s The Torch (1950) starring Paulette Goddard and Pedro Armendáriz.  She studied acting for three years at the National Association of Actors’ Film Academy of Radio and Television, and was given her first starring role opposite Cantinflas in El padrecito (1964), her most famous film.”

If you say so, Wikipedia.

She’s applying all of her skills as a trained actor here.

The film apparently featured some of the great Mexican rock-n-roll bands of the sixties.  At the beginning of this clip is one of those bands performing the hit “Hang On Sloopy”, here changed to “Hang On Lupe”.  Then there’s some minor go-go dancing.  Finally is a segment that’s groovy, but rather burlesque.

You have been warned.

Have a groovy weekend!

Harriet Tubman is one of America’s most beloved historical figures but has sadly been largely relegated to just a few facts during Black History Month. This incredible ex-slave, spy, cook, nurse, public speaker and rescuer deserves a story worthy of her stature.

“Minty” – tentatively titled after Tubman’s nickname – is a “reimagining” of Harriet Tubman as an action hero. It is a period piece with a modern flare.
