Mexicana is a 1945 American musical film directed by Alfred Santell and starring Tito Guízar, Constance Moore and Leo Carrillo. The film was one of three made by Republic Pictures in line with the American government's Good Neighbor policy towards Latin America. Its plot is almost identical to that of another Guízar vehicle Brazil (1944).[1]


A crooner and heartthrob in Mexico, "Pepe" Luis Almarena Villarreal (Tito Guízar), grows tired of being mobbed by his young female fans. With the help of his manager, Esteban Guzman (Leo Carrillo) they plan to enlist the help of someone to play Villarreal's faux-wife. Enter Alison Calvert (Constance Moore), an American star in her own right, who first declines the offer, but eventually agrees to playing the trophy wife. Villarreal and Calvert butt heads often, and become upset over the competition from his fans. The pretend couple hatch a plan but become aware that they both have a love of family. Tricks and misunderstanding find Villarreal and Calvert in separate places, but both secretly admitting they love each other. A dejected Villarreal still performs, and eventually Calvert joins him on stage during a romantic ballad. As the sweethearts finish the number, they duck behind Villarreal's top-hat share a real kiss.
