Immediate Delivery (Spanish: Entrega inmediata), originally known as Agente XU 777 (English: Agent XU 777) is a 1963 Mexican comedy film directed by Miguel M. Delgado and starring Cantinflas, Gina Romand, Claudio Brook and Fanny Cano.[1] In the film, Cantinflas plays a simple mailman forced to become an international spy.[2] It was the last black and white film made by Cantinflas, although he had already made six color films at the time.

Plot

Feliciano (Cantinflas) is a mailman who is recruited by a secret counterintelligence service (which codenames him Agent XU-777), and must discover an international conspiracy.

He manages to find out that enemy agents, led by Carlota (Gina Romand) and Alex (Claudio Brook), will smuggle a teacher to decipher keys through a coffin. Feliciano is put in charge of the funeral home, but he ends up delivering the coffin to a wrong person, distracting the loyal agents and allowing the enemy to achieve their goal. However, the enemy agents discover that for the deciphering process they also must obtain a specific code.

In a parallel storyline, Feliciano learns that an old compadre of his arrangled for his daughter to go live with Feliciano after his death. Due to a letter from his compadre where he describes his daughter as his "bebé" ("baby"), Feliciano assumes that his compadre’s daughter is an infant, even buying a crib and milk for the impending arrival. However, much to his surprise, he ends up discovering that his compadre’s daughter is actually a young woman nicknamed "Bebé" (Fanny Cano), and they end developing a romantic relationship. The enemy agents then kidnap Bebé to force Feliciano to betray his homeland and give the code to the enemy.
