If you like Lupe ...
9 January 2012 | by (Manhattan) – See all my reviews

Lupe Velez fans will enjoy this minor musical in which the gal plays two roles, a recent arrival to New York named Rita, and her lookalike cousin, Maria, who is a Broadway musical star calling herself Elaine. The cousin has hidden the fact that she's married and pregnant from the producer, so Rita takes over her role while Maria goes off to have the baby. Things get amusingly complicated when the husband shows up without knowing the switch, not to mention two other guys who are interested in either Rita or Maria. Lewis Wilson, the first actor to play Batman, is in the cast, as is Gerald Mohr. Co-star Michael Duane is easily out-acted and out-personality-ed by Velez, who sings not too badly, dances well, and seems to be having a lot of fun. If you enjoy the Mexican Spitfire films you may get a minor bang out of this.
