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 »
Following dinner at the Pringle house, Stephen and Oogie are walking through the house talking about women, and they pass the staircase twice as they walk toward the front door. See more »
The music is nice and the acting is excellent. While I like Jane Powell and Elizabeth Taylor was positively gorgeous, I'm a huge fan of Wallace Beery. When we look back and consider great actors, he is very underrated. It offers a look back at the family unit of the time compared to what exists now.
