Dr. Brinkley’s Tower
The year is 1931, and the only successful business in the Mexican border town of Corazón de la Fuente is a brothel in which every girl is named Maria. Enter Dr. Romulus Brinkley, inventor of a ‘goat-gland operation’ that, he claims, cures male impotence. When Brinkley decides to build a gargantuan new radio tower to broadcast his services, he chooses none other than Corazón de la Fuente for its site.
The town’s fortunes change overnight, though not all to the good – as word of the town’s new prosperity spreads, Corazón is overrun with desperados and mercenaries itching to reopen old wounds. Worst of all, Dr. Brinkley has attracted the attention of the town’s most beautiful citizen, one Violeta Cruz. Tired of such indignities, Violeta’s spurned fiancé, a young man named Francisco, forms an unlikely alliance with several other disgruntled townsfolk, including an octogenarian Cassanova, a brooding Spanish nobleman, an impotent bar own, and the much feared village witch. Together, they enact a radical plot to drive Brinkley away.
