My Dearest Senorita (1972): Spain’s Oscar Nominee

In this light, gender-bender comedy from Spain, directed by Jaime de Arminan, the lady (Adele) is actually a man (Juan), who’s in disguise in order to see if life is different for women.

The Foreign Language Oscar went to Luis Bunuel’s superlative subtle comedy”The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie.”
