El Tango en Broadway- a musical (1934) 85 min.
Alberto Bazán (Carlos Gardel) plays a young man living the good life in New York at the expense of his rich uncle Don Indalecio Bazán (Jaime Devesa). When his uncle suddenly arrives in New York, he soon discovers the money he regularly sends to his nephew is used on women and drinks instead of for business endeavors, as he was led to believe.  But Alberto decides -with the cooperation of his fiancée, who is also his secretary and his manager- to convert his uncle to "the good life" to convince him to continue subsidizing Alberto's lifestyle. (In Spanish with English subtitles).
