Neither Blood nor Sand
Neither Blood nor Sand (Spanish: Ni sangre, ni arena) is a 1941 Mexican comedy film directed by Alejandro Galindo and starring Cantinflas, Susana Guízar and Elvia Salcedo. It was intended as a parody of the big-budget Hollywood film Blood and Sand, which portrays the world of bullfighting.

It was Cantinflas' second full feature film, and its popularity cemented his rising success. He did not get on well with the film's director, but bonded with his assistant Miguel M. Delgado who became his favourite director and directed many of his films. Cantinflas rapidly followed the film with another success, The Unknown Policeman.
