I really think you can do no wrong by coupling Don Ameche and Betty Grable. I love them together and on their own. This cute film which is bursting with technicolor is no different.
Don and his father sell horses and father tells Don that he won't sell any to the Crawfords (they are bad news). While at a horse race, Don meets Betty who wants to buy the horse. He agrees because she is so beautiful, until he learns she is a Crawford!
She gets mad at him and heads back to the USA. She tells auntie (Charlotte Greenwood, who I love) that she wants to buys some horses and is heading to Argentina again to shop. Auntie knows whats up and calls her out. She is really going down to find Don!
When she arrives Betty is taken out by what she thinks is her dad's friend, but us really a tour guide. She has a blast with him until she sees Don. After a slap, they decide to be friends.
Don and Betty learn from Don's worker that his best jump horse likes to race, and they decide to train him to be a winner. Auntie teams up with the tour guide for some fun.
Father is going to be furious when he finds out that Don is racing the horse and canoodling with a Crawford! But the two are in love.
Carmen Miranda has a bit part in this film, as it is her first.
The Nicholson Brothers also have a cameo and do a wonderful dance that was lengthened by the director because of how well it did during test screenings.
This film really set Betty's career into full motion and gave Carmen Miranda the attention from the USA she was looking for. Don Ameche just looks handsome as always.
