At the Sound of the Bugle (Spanish: Al toque de clarín) is a 1941 Argentine film directed by Orestes Caviglia and written by Florencio Chiarello. The film starred Ramón Garay and Enrique Giacovino introducing radio comedians Rafael Buono and Salvador Striano.

Rafael Buono and Salvador Striano



Al Toque de Clarin was partially intended as a showcase for Argentine radio favorites Buono and Strato, Latin America's answer to Abbott & Costello. Based on a French play written by Florencio Chiarello and Francisco Bolla, the film concerns a retired military officer who runs his rural farm like a boot camp. In dire financial straits, the ex-officer hopes that his sister will marry a stranger who has apparently fallen heir to a fortune. What the audience knows that the protagonist doesn't is that the sly stranger doesn't have a peso to his name. The actual heir is a humble farmhand who has loved the sister from afar lo these many years.
