Trivia

The original play, "The Red Cat" by Hans Adler, opened in New York on 19 September 1934. It had a brief run of 13 performances. Fox Studios head Darryl F. Zanuck financed the play's brief Broadway production so he could purchase the movie rights. In 1935, Zanuck used the play as the basis for the movie Folies Bergère de Paris (1935), starring Maurice Chevalier. Following That Night in Rio (1941), Fox Studios again used the play as the basis for On the Riviera (1951), starring Danny Kaye. See more »

Still has great Colour
13 December 2004 | by (Adelaide Australia) – See all my reviews

The one thing that has stood the test of time for "That Night In Rio" is the great Technicolor - it is quite outstanding. The story has been done to death many times, but probably not much better than this, and the cast are a lot of fun - Carmen Miranda was really the Brazilian Bombshell as the ads said, and had the best lines, and the best songs of the time (pretty terrible to listen to now!), Don Ameche was a charmer and his "Boa Noite" was very good, while Alice Faye looked decidedly overweight, but it may have been caused by all the jewellery she had to wear!! The supporting cast were as usual excellent, with all the old stagers in it - a quick glimpse of Maria Montez came as a bit of a surprise. All in all , very light entertainment, but harmless.
