The King of Mexico (Spanish:El rey de México) is a 1956 Mexican comedy film. It was written by Luis Alcoriza.


A local radio station decides to try out an experiment and offers the first homeless man that walks by the chance of becoming a millionaire for a day. The fortunate man, portrayed by the Mexican comedian, Adalberto Martinez, a.k.a. Resortes, sleeps with other homeless people on the floor of a shelter. After living a day of luxury, he returns to the shelter to tell his friends that the life of a millionaire was not much different from their own; they ate, slept and worked whenever they wanted. The only difference was that the rich had ulcers. The moral of this story is that not all that glitters is gold and that sometimes you dream of having something and when you get it, it’s not what you had expected.[1]
