Trivia

Carmen Miranda enjoyed her biggest film-song hit with the jaunty travel tune, "Cuanto la Gusta" (music by Gabriel Ruiz, lyrics by Ray Gilbert). Carmen's Decca single, blending her with The Andrews Sisters, peaked at number 12 in "Billboard," where the disc had a 14-week stay. In the picture, Miss Miranda's song and samba had the backing of 'Xavier Cugat' and His Orchestra. On Columbia Records, Cugi without Carmen scored a "Billboard"-charting success. See more »

Carol Pringle: It's a very nice little swing number, Judy. But I don't know if it's really appropriate for a High School dance.

Duelling Sopranos?
28 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found it interesting that MGM's two leading sopranos (Kathryn Grayson and Jane Powell) performed the same song ("Love is Where You Find It")in two different movies that were released in 1948. I had first heard the song sung by Kathryn Grayson in "The Kissing Bandit" and the first thing I thought of was how the song would sound if sung by Jane Powell. When I saw "A Date with Judy" 5 days ago for the first time, I got my answer! I thought Elizabeth Taylor was a hoot as a sultry "come-hither" sophisticated type against Jane Powell's perinnial "good girl". It's a wholesome corny flick, but boy, they don't make them like that anymore! As always I wish there had been more singing. Can anyone tell me where to get song lyrics from all the great old MGM musicals. I would love to have the words to "Love is Where You Find It".
