While most of the films in this list have an awful reputation they are an excellent and often funny way to analyse the reactionary ideology, values and beliefs imposed during the Franco regime as well as the use of different film resources to make them look appealing to the audience. Conceived usually as a comedy, they were extremely popular in its time and even today they are regularly shown on Spanish TV channels. The book that presents this selection of films is part of a recent research project in sociology and ethics funded by the Spanish government.

From the book "Cine de barrio tardofranquista: reflejo de una sociedad" by Miguel Ángel Huerta Floriano and Ernesto Pérez Morán (eds.), Ed. Biblioteca Nueva, 2012. ISBN:978-84-9940-560-5. Films are listed in the same order they are presented in the book.
