Broadway partners Vicky Lane and Dan Christy have a tiff over Christy's womanizing. Jealous Vicky takes up with her old flame and former dance partner, Victor Price, and Dan's career takes a nosedive. In hopes of rekindling their romance and getting Vicky back on the boards with him, Dan follows her to a ritzy resort in the Canadian Rockies, where she and Victor are about to open their new act. But things get complicated when Dan wakes after a bender to find that he's hired an outlandish Latin secretary, Rosita Murphy, which makes Vicky think he's just up to his old tricks again. Written by

"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60-minute CBS Radio adaptation of the movie on May 22, 1944 with Betty Grable and Carmen Miranda reprising their film roles, plus Dick Powell stepping into John Payne's part. According to Grable biographer Tom McGee in his 1995 book, "The Girl With the Million Dollar Legs," Betty had been disappointed in not getting to sing on screen the classic wartime love song, "I Had the Craziest Dream" (music by Harry Warren, lyrics by Mack Gordon), the tune being assigned to the Harry James vocalist Helen Forrest. In the radio adaptation, Betty and Dick shared the ditty twice -- first a complete rendition and then a partial reprise at the end. See more »

Technicolor and Carmen Miranda - Oh! What a combo!!
If I didn't read it somewhere, I'm sure I'd appropriate the assertion
myself: "Technicolor was invented for Carmen Miranda." That fabulously
talented lady from Brazil possessed a sense of humor which brightened many
an hour for me. (Yes, she was assisted by scriptwriters and directors who
knew how to showcase her gifts, but her personality simply leaps from the
screen and into all those receptive hearts who so regret her untimely
This is one of the better films in which Carmen appeared (Luvved her
character's moniker: "Rosita Murphy" - What fun!) and other comments on this
site aptly point out its delights. Everyone in the cast gets to add to the
pleasure and let no one cast aspersions on Miss Betty Grable - her verve and
naturalness were one of Twentieth-Century Fox's most valuable assets,
especially during those difficult WWII years. A friend of mine, whose
youthful cinema-going was considerably less supervised than mine, was
absolutely besotted with Betty's blonde beauty and bounce. I believe he saw
everyone of her films first-run, when he was barely old enough to enter a
theater unaccompanied, as he did, and he insisted I catch TV showings of
those Grable gems (and her fabled gams) whenever he saw a broadcast listing.
Each time I was able to follow his recommendation, I was not in the least
sorry. And with Senorita Miranda to whip this confection into frothy
perfection...well, as the saying goes: "They don't make 'em like that
