Did You Know?
One element of the Johnny Appleseed story missing from the film was that the man was also a missionary of The New Church, in other words Swedenborgianism. Originally an 18th-century religious movement based on the ideas of Swedish mystic Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), the ideas of the movement spread to the United States in the 19th century. Johnny Appleseed is credited to converting several people during his wanderings. See more
[introduction to "Blame It On the Samba"
Master of Ceremonies
The intoxicating rhythm of the samba. A talented miss serves a musical cocktail with a true Latin American fling. So if three boisterous birds of a feather fall under the influence of this torrid tropical tempo, don't blame them, blame it on the rhythm of the samba.
