Two new actresses presented to the public on film for the first time seemed risky but they both became,as we now know, legendary. Down Argentine Way is a quickly moving,delightfully relaxing and and enjoyable film presented in 1940's Technicolor. An American heiress Glenda Crawford (Betty Grable) loves horses and wants to purchase a thoroughbred off Ricardo Quintana (Don Ameche). The problem is that Ricardo's father Don Diego Quintana (Henry Stephenson) refuses to have any dealings with the Crawford family due to an old feud (over a girl it later transpires) with Willis Crawford, the family head. In pursuit of her love of horses she flies to Argentina with her mother Binnie Crawford (Charlotte Greenwood) also interested in horses and racing. Glenda meets Ricardo and falls in love, the feelings later reciprocated by Ricardo. After an eye-catching dramatic and important horse race old family differences and squabbles are put to rest.
Plenty of singing and dancing. Charlotte Greenwood is solid as an actress but a revelation with her high-kicking dance and singing (Sing To Your Seniorita).Read more ›
The lightweight story concerns a romance between an Argentinian horse-breeder (Don Ameche) and a New York society beauty (Grable) eventually overcoming the disapproval of Ameche's father (Henry Stephenson), but it is mainly an excuse for some colourful song and dance numbers (music by Harry Warren). Don Ameche reveals himself as the owner of a pleasant singing voice (and in Spanish, too!), Betty Grable shakes a mean hoof and looks luscious in colour (she got this break because Alice Faye was unavailable for the role), and Carmen Miranda sings two songs in a cabaret interlude as well as introducing the film with "South American Way". Her sequences were filmed in New York as because of her theatre engagements they could not be filmed in Hollywood.For this film she was in effect merely one of a number of speciality acts, a feature of musicals at the time, but she was so sensational that Zanuck took the unprecedented step of giving her star billing. Another speciality act featured the very talented Nicholas Brothers, one of their very best appearances.Read more ›
