We are going to tell the story of the only Spaniard with four stars on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame. A joyful biopic full of music, that links two continents. From black and white to colour, with films shot in studios with star-studded casts. We’ll pay tribute to the rise of the big orchestras. We’ll revisit the legendary clubs, the ballrooms and casinos that emerged just after the end of the prohibition. We’ll revive the soundtracks of the great musical films. We’ll tell a story of romances, with gangsters, luxury cars and palm-tree-filled sets. A story that goes from Barcelona to Cuba, via Las Vegas. We are going to explore the incredible life of Xavier Cugat.
