Production and releaseEdit

Here Are the Aguilares! was filmed from February 1956 at the San Ángel studios. It was released in the Bucareli, Colonial, Popotla and Tacubaya cinemas for one week.[1]


In his book El actor de cine: arte, mito y realidad, when resuming Luis Aguilar's career, José Alberto Lezcano considered it among Aguilar's most famous works, describing it as one of his "comedies of manners and rural melodramas."[4]

Jaime Salvador's direction has been also singled out. In El cine mexicano, Emilio García Riera states that "what Jaime Salvador directs in this period, one can find everything,"[5] while the book El exilio español de 1939 recounts a number of films directed by Salvador during this period, including Here Are the Aguilares!, saying that during this period "Salvador continued to shoot, without inspiration, comedies, musical comedies, adventure films and melodramas."[6]
