Trivia

In U.S. prints, Johnny Desmond sings the title song over both the main titles and end credits. British prints use an alternate recording featuring a male chorus (with heavily pronounced English accents), and Desmond's vocal credit remains despite the fact that his voice does not appear in the film. It is Desmond's recording of the song that can be heard on the film's soundtrack album. See more »

Abominably Horrible
7 September 2003 | by jazmaanSee all my reviews

The "Ain't Misbehavin'" number is so bad its almost good.

Dancing African spearchuckers played by white guys in purplish black body paint with red fright wigs with bones in their hair carrying zebra shields. Got the picture? No you don't, not yet. Alan Young in a monkey suit sitting in a tree singing "Ain't Misbehavin" for no discernible reason. Jane Russell dressed up as an African queen sings the second chorus as a duet with the monkey man (again for no logical reason, is she in love with a gorilla?) while the dancing "Africans" sing along in unmistably WHITE voices! Oh man its so bad you won't know whether to laugh, cry or run out of the room screaming.
