Pablo Cortina stops by the convent looking for work, and agrees to do handyman work in exchange for English lessons. To Carlos, Pablo looks a lot like El Charro, a famous bullfighter from Madrid. They all discover that Pablo is indeed El Charro - his father was previously an orphan at the convent, and El Charro thought it would be the only place he could disappear from the media spotlight while he learned English. When a newspaperman comes snooping around the convent hearing that someone matching El Charro's description was hired as the convent handyman, Carlos pretends to be said handyman. This causes problems for Carlos, who is reported to be learning to read and write English. He can't convince some close to him that he's not illiterate, including new serious girlfriend Theresa, as he currently can't read anything since the opthamologist put pupil dilating drops in his eyes. Using a fake name, Theresa asks Sister Bertrille, who protects El Charro and implies Carlos is the one learning English at the convent. From this corroboration, Theresa dumps Carlos. Carlos asks Sister Bertrille to explain the whole story to Theresa. When Sister Bertrille and El Charro go to see Theresa, Theresa believes them but Carlos loses the girl anyway: she falls for El Charro. Written By Huggo  Less
