Song of Toledo

This merrily musical short film takes a jovial trip across picturesque 1950s Spain aboard the Talgo Express

Musical 1953 31 mins


Juanita, a music-loving young lady from Toledo, receives an important but unexpected letter from a London solicitor telling her she has inherited an English stately home from a distant relative. Starting out from Madrid, she joyfully sings and dances her way across Spain with some folk musician friends, then visits Paris before she finally reaches London.

The train scenes in this film were shot on the Talgo Express, while the tavern scenes were shot at El Meson in Fuencarral, Northern Madrid.
