Featured Animal Action

In several scenes, animals such as chickens, burros, and horses walk around or stand in the background. Filmed in villages in Mexico City and Acapulco, the production did not hire animal trainers for the film. They instead opted to hire locals as extras and their animals for background work. Production did not interfere with the animals in the shots and merely captured what they did naturally.
