Bobby's starting to grow up...and expanding his talents.
Mr. Fleming is a man whose father is very rich. While he's on a cruise in South America, he's constantly annoyed by a lady who won't take no for an answer. So, to get away from her, he decides to stay in some town until she gets back on the ship. In the meantime, he becomes infatuated with a local lady. Now here's where it gets pretty weird. To impress her father, he tells him he's in the country to purchase mate (tea) to bring back to the States. And, with some 'help' from a local boy (Bobby Breen), the lady's father thinks Fleming is out to buy ALL his teatons and tons and tons of the stuff. It's all a semi-wacky mess and Breen is mostly along to provide a bit of supporting acting and sing a few songs. As usual, Breen's voice is amazing considering his ageand his Hispanic accent isn't bad, actually. Like all of Breen's films, it's pleasant and forgettable. And, as Bobby is a bit older in this one, the film lacks the usual Breen cuteness. You can't blame Breenhe was just nearing puberty--and this turned out to be one of his last films (probably because of his age)! So will you like it? I really can't say for sure, as Breen's films are VERY unusual and old fashioned musicals. I find them hokey but charming. Regardless, it's not a bad time-passer but also no major surprises or thrills.
