We want to thank David Wilt for his kind help in writing many of the film descriptions listed on these pages. Without his indispensable book, 'The Mexican Filmography' (McFarland, 2004), the task of writing descriptions of all these films would have been almost impossible. We paraphrased his reviews for most of the synopsis we used for the films. If you don't yet have a copy of Dave's book, there will soon be a new paperback edition -- likely released toward the end of 2010.
