This film contains the last on-screen singing performance by The Andrews Sisters, who share with Bing Crosby the saucy Latin-swing hit, "You Don't Have to Know the Language" (music by Jimmy Van Heusen, lyrics by Johnny Burke). This number was revived splendidly by Lena Horne on two RCA Victor albums: "Songs by Burke and Van Heusen" (released in 1959), and "Lena at the Sands" (recorded live in Las Vegas, November 3-5, 1960).

Dorothy Lamour, Bob Hope,Bing Crosby. and an old fashion musical in clothes of commedy. seductive, exotic, nice, hilarious, romantic and slice of an age of Hollywood in which the entertainment was more than a superficial duty. sure, for our time, clear expression of naivety. but the truth remains in the "Road to Rio" area. one of motifs - it has an easy but smart story, the Wiere Brothers in adorable performances and, sure, Gale Sondergaard as the perfect evil woman from a glorious tradition. so, just "Road to Rio".
