The musical "Rio Rita" opened on Broadway in New York City, New York, USA on 2 February 1927 and closed on 7 April 1928 after 494 performances. The cast included Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey who reprised their roles in the 1929 movie of the same name. Only 2 songs were used in this 1942 movie, and the screenplay bears no resemblance to the plot of the 1929 version. In fact, the SAB designated the 1942 version as an original story. See more »

A few months ago, I was really on a roll on seeing Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's films, especially their early films, and so this was one of the ones that I got a hold of to watch. So one day, I got this movie and watched it, the whole thing, all the way through. And so when it was over, I had to give an opinion on it, and I can say that this is a very funny Abbott and Costello film, it is not as good as their previous ones such as Hold That Ghost and Buck Privates, but it is still a very funny movie and a very great Abbott and Costello vehicle! Abbott and Costello against the Nazi's, who will be the winner? The winner is of course the very lovable and ubiquitous Abbott and Costello, I have said this a lot but Abbott and Costello are the greatest comedy team of them all, they are the kings of comedy, and one of these days, I am going to collect all of their really great films on home video and watch them all in order! Abbott and Costello are the greatest movie comedy team, but the Three Stooges are the best short comedy team! Sorry Stooges, but Abbott and Costello are the greatest of them all!
This is not the best Abbott and Costello movie that I have ever seen, that one is Hold That Ghost, but I can honestly say that this is a very hysterical movie that will get your laughter really rising high! I just really love Abbott and Costello, no more no less, I just really love them! One last thing here, if you are really a big fan of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello and if you have not seen this movie yet, then I really think that you should!
Prepare yourself for Abbott and Costello at one of their best, because when you watch this movie, you are going to be paralyzed with laughter, no kidding, you seriously will!
