After Su excelencia , Cantinflas began to appear in a series of very low-budget comedies directed by Miguel M. Delgado , which were produced by his own company "Cantinflas Films". These films lasted until El Barrendero , in Like Charlie Chaplin , Cantinflas was a social satirist. He played el pelado , an impoverished Everyman, with hopes to succeed. With mutual admiration, Cantinflas was influenced by Chaplin's earlier films and ideology.
Cantinflas' films, to this day, still generate revenue for Columbia Pictures. Among the things that endeared him to his public was his comic use of language in his films; his characters all of which were really variations of the main "Cantinflas" persona but cast in different social roles and circumstances would strike up a normal conversation and then complicate it to the point where no one understood what they were talking about.
The Cantinflas character was particularly adept at obfuscating the conversation when he owed somebody money, was courting an attractive young woman, or was trying to talk his way out of trouble with authorities, whom he managed to humiliate without their even being able to tell. Cantinflas' style and the content of his films have led scholars to conclude that he influenced the many teatros that spread the message of the Chicano Movement during the ss in the United States, the most important of which was El Teatro Campesino. The teatro movement was an important part of the cultural renaissance that was the social counterpart of the political movement for the civil rights of Mexican Americans.
Cantinflas' use of social themes and style is seen as a precursor to Chicano theater. A cartoon series, the Cantinflas Show , was made in starring an animated Cantinflas. The show was targeted for children and was intended to be educational. Although Cantinflas never achieved the same success in the United States as in Mexico, he was honored with a motion pictures star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at Hollywood Boulevard. The Mario Moreno "Cantinflas" Award is handed out annually for entertainers who "represent the Latino community with the same humor and distinction as the legendary Mario Moreno "Cantinflas" and who, like Cantinflas, utilizes his power to help those most in need".
On August 12, , the Google Doodle paid homage to Cantinflas on his th birth anniversary. Moreno's life is the subject of the biographical film Cantinflas , directed by Sebastian del Amo. Cantinflas is sometimes seen as a Mexican Groucho Marx character, one who uses his skill with words to puncture the pretensions of the wealthy and powerful, the police and the government, with the difference that he strongly supported democracy.
Historian and author of Cantinflas and the Chaos of Mexican Modernity , writes, "Cantinflas symbolized the underdog who triumphed through trickery over more powerful opponents" and presents Cantinflas as a self-image of a transitional Mexico. Gregorio Luke , executive director of the Museum of Latin American Art said, "To understand Cantinflas is to understand what happened in Mexico during the last century".
Particularly in the film El analfabeto , The Illiterate , "Cantinflas is the illiterate who takes control of the language by whatever means he can". In his biography of the comic, scholar of Mexican culture Jeffrey M. Pilcher views Cantinflas as a metaphor for "the chaos of Mexican modernity", a modernity that was just out of reach for the majority of Mexicans: "His nonsense language eloquently expressed the contradictions of modernity as 'the palpitating moment of everything that wants to be that which it cannot be'.
