oh, please, Rodgers and Hart?
6 April 2015 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Maureen O'Hara, James Ellison, Buddy Ebsen, Fortunio Bonanova, and by special demand Alberto Vila star in "They Met in Argentina," from 1941.

A Texas oil millionaire wants oil lands in Argentina, but when he doesn't get them he sends his representative (Ellison) after a famous race horse. Ellison falls head over heels for the daughter of the horse's owner (O'Hara).

What an annoying film. One rotten song after another - written by Rodgers & Hart? One of the great writing teams, and this music was unbearable.

The role played by beautiful Maureen O'Hara could have been played by a chimpanzee. O'Hara had a lovely singing voice and she didn't sing a note in this. And let's just say that James Ellison doesn't quite measure up to O'Hara's other leading men which included John Wayne, Tyrone Power, Rex Harrison, James Stewart, and John Payne.

The Argentinian government wouldn't allow the film to be released there unless footage of their big star, Alberto Vila, was added. It doesn't help.

A very disappointing film with nothing to recommend it. And what is the point of having Maureen O'Hara in a movie if you're not going to film in color?
