Ritz Brothers vs. Andrews Sisters

Author: boblipton from New York City
8 April 2007

If you don't like the Ritz Brothers -- and I can only take so much of their mugging myself -- then avoid this Universal B movie. It is not, I hasten to say, a complete waste of time. The best bit in it is a burlesque of those novelty Latin dances from from the Astaires-Rogers movies called 'The Brooklyn Nanga', which runs to the scansion of 'The Carioca'.

Once you've mentioned that, you've exhausted the strong points of this movie as everyone heads down to Argentina, where polo-playing George Reeves -- looking like John Carroll -- pretends to be a bandito called 'El Tigre' in order to romance Grace McDonald. Some decent although unmemorable songs and Ritz Brother routines fill out the time and while this is not the best musical ever made, it is a pleasant enough time waster to make you stay through the end --although it won't make fans for any of the talent involved.
