      Pare Lorentz McCall's I imagine it is a great deal of fun to make a musical comedy picture, because of the complicated equipment, the sets, and the huge crowds you have to deal with; and for that reason, probably, almost every chorus number runs too long. Oct 30, 2023 Full Review Meyer Levin (Patterson Murphy) Esquire Magazine Lady in Red is a swell song, and Muchacha has crazy lyrics... Apr 17, 2020 Full Review Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine Some Spanish serenades, some moderately good dancing by Dolores del Rio... and just enough story to hold things together. Aug 6, 2019 Full Review Helen Brown Norden Vanity Fair An average musical, made definitely superior for one brief moment by the presence of that peerless dance team, the De Marcos.

      David K Nothing memorable here beyond Dolores del Rio. The real focus isn't star Pat O'Brien, it's Edward Everett Horton, who will always hold a special place in the hearts of kids who grew up trying to figure out exactly what Rocky & Bullwinkle was really about. The Busby Berkeley numbers are not his strongest but given the budget they break up the ridiculous plot line. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/22/23 Full Review Audience Member What a nice little surprise this was, and great showcase for Dolores del Río. The premise of a magazine critic (Pat Oâ(TM)Brien) being taken to Mexico while drunk by his business partner (Edward Everett Horton) to avoid being married (to Glenda Farrell) is a little silly, not unlike other screwball comedies. Itâ(TM)s made interesting by Horton trying to set Oâ(TM)Brien up with del Río in order that he forget Farrell, not remembering that Oâ(TM)Brien once panned del Río in a review and sheâ(TM)d like to get even with him. The little cat and mouse game she plays, assisted by her shrewd manager (Leo Carrillo) who regularly takes advantage of foreigners, is entertaining, and director Michael Curtiz moves things along well. We also get the incomparable Busby Berkeley and a couple of entertaining musical numbers in the second half of the film. The first of these, â~The Lady in Redâ(TM) includes wonderful vocals from Wini Shaw, sexy shimmying from the chorus, and an extended ballroom dance routine by Tony De Marco and Sally Craven (later his third wife), who were nearly as good as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, if not on a par with them. Itâ(TM)s definitely one to watch. The second, âMuchachaâ(TM) is also pretty wild, with horses prancing up a staircase in addition to del Río singing and dancing. del Río is charming throughout the film, and itâ(TM)s refreshing that her character is intelligent, erudite, and elegant. Sheâ(TM)s a beauty in her evening gowns and the two-piece bathing suit that she helped pioneer, which we see plenty of in a long scene at the pool. She was on her way out of Hollywood a few years later which is a shame, though it really makes me want to check out her Mexican films from the 1940â(TM)s. I may be rounding up a bit because of her and Berkeley, but they made the film for me. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member WB musical pretending to be an RKO musical Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty cute movie and I love musicals. Also, very cool to finally see one of Mexico's first leading ladies in a Hollywood film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
