According to director Mitchell Leisen, "rubber cement, tape, and everything else" were used to keep up the bodice of the dress of Dorothy Lamour so that it would not descend to below Production Code limitations. See more »
Yesterday I finally received a great copy of this film I had liked on TV as a young child in the 60's. Though I am more into melodramas and suspense films, I thought I would try this one with the lush Mexico settings and lovely music.
I noticed some comments here and realize that everyone has his own opinion. After watching the film all the way through, I brought out my copy of Midnight with Claudette Colbert. Yes, I am a really big Claudette fan, but came to like Dorothy in her 40's films; her lovely and gentle manner, great singing voice really enhanced this film.
Yes, I like the wildly witty Midnight with Claudette, John Barrymore, and Don AMeche.
But, Dorothy singing It's Love and some others was very appealing. Too bad the film had cut Perfidia. I would love to have heard her sing this song my dad had liked during WWII. But it was not in the film.
