All are presented in 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen with their original Spanish DD1.0 Mono audio tracks, with optional English and Spanish subtitles. Bonus features are limited to Trailers. The films are...

El Analfabeto - Cantinflas plays a young illiterate who receives a letter informing him that his rich uncle has passed away leaving him a great fortune. However, he'll need to learn to read and write before understanding the letter.

El Bolero de Raquel - After arriving late and tipsy to his friend's funeral, Cantinflas is left in charge of his friend's son by the widow. Cantinflas and the boy, Chavita, meet Chavita's teacher, who convinces Cantinflas that he should also go to school. When Cantiflas meets the teacher again they confess their love.

El Padrecito - Cantinflas stars as the new priest in a town set in its ways. Thinking he is going to take the place of their beloved priest, none of the townspeople like him. While there, he stirs up controversy with his ecclectic ways of doing things.

Su Excelencia - Cantinflas works at the embassy for his native Los Cocos, distributing visas to those wishing to visit his homeland. At this time, the world is divided into two sections: those countries that are red and those that are green. Because both sides are evenly matched and Los Cocos has the deciding vote, Cantinflas becomes the Ambassador to Los Cocos and both sides try to persuade him to join them.
