Very interesting.

But just what kind of a pass was that?.

It was not a veronica.

It was not a chicuelina.

-It was not a gaonera.

-Oh, no, senor.

It`s my own pass.

When I am famous,

they`II name it after me.


Don`t you think you are giving the bull

too much time?.

Oh, no, senor.

Well, we shall see. Chato, you`re the bull.

Are you ready?.



. Ha, ha.

You want to be famous, huh?.

AIways remember,

if you wish to Iive beyond your first fight...

...the bull does not stop

to admire pretty pictures.

Oh, senor, Iook at me.

Look at me--

-Senor, Iook at my veronica.

One at a time. Let`s see you.

The mayor.


Senor Morales.

Don Antonio, please forgive this interruption

of your most important work.

Of what service can I be?.

Sanchez is overcome with gratitude.

You are the father of the boy who fought

his first bull yesterday, at TIaxcala.

Your son was a very good pupil.

You can be proud of him.

Perhaps you`d be kind enough

to read what it say, senor.


It`s a pleasure.

""Yesterday`s fights were distinguished

by the appearance...

...of a novillero,

one Jose Sanchez Perio...

...a country boy

from the village of Tamantla.

Critics were impressed by his daring...

...and a style which reminded them...

...of the great matador,

Don Antonio Morales...

...who you will remember

was injured some years ago--""

Senor, the doctor,

he says to come, and quickly.

Chato, do you hear what he says?.

-The doctor--

-Where`s the doctor?.


Senor Morales...

...permit me to present you

a new guest in your house.


-May I?.


Are you not the father?. Ha, ha.

-How is the senora?.

-Oh, fine, fine.

Thank you, doctor.


-Is it, uh, all right?.


I mean, uh,

Iegs and arms and everything?.

An idiot could tell just by Iooking

that he`s perfect.

Manuel. Manuel, bring wine.

We`II drink to Morales the second,

my son.

But, Antonio, it is not a son.

Not a son?.

What is it, then?.

It is a daughter.

-A daughter?.

-He`s joking, maestro.

-Tell him you`re joking. Quick.

-I`m not joking.

What kind of a doctor are you, anyway?.

-Don`t you know anything?.

-We must take what comes.

What are you saying?.

What can a matador do with a daughter?.

You`ve ruined everything.

-Don`t pay him, maestro. Not a centavo.


Doctor, please. Quickly, quickly.

Here, hold her.



Baby, mira. Ha, ha.

By gosh, she knows me.

And we never saw each other before.

Doctor, is she all right?.

If it were not for frantic fathers,

the medical profession would be a pleasure.

Querida, are you all right?.

Oh, I was afraid.

-Antonio Morales, afraid?.


PIease, darling, don`t think I`m--

Don`t think I`m disappointed

because she`s a girl, you know.

I`m very happy, very happy.

-But the doctor--

-The doctor`s a fool. Don`t you believe him.

I`m as happy as any man could be.

You are a very Iucky man, matador.

The father of twins. Ha, ha.


Well, aren`t you even going to Iook

at him?.


Why don`t you go and introduce your son

to your friends outside?.

Doctor, are you sure--?.

This is a boy. Take my word for it.

Here, take him.

And I will go with you.

I have a few words to say

to that Senor Chato.


My friends...

...this is the greatest day of my Iife.

I feared I would be denied a son of my own

to follow after me.

But now, at Iast, amigos...

...I ask you to drink to my son,

Mario Morales...

...the future greatest matador
