Holiday in Mexico

  • Film
0 Love It
Absurdly over-extended musical confection in which Pidgeon as the US Ambassador to Mexico looks on in disdain as daughter Powell falls for local classical pianist Iturbi. That's the cue for a string of musical interludes bringing in everything from Xavier Cugat and his Latin combo doing the 'Walter Winchell Rumba', an arrangement of 'Three Blind Mice' by the then 17-year-old André Previn, and, to top it all, Schubert's 'Ave Maria'. MGM threw everything they had at this one, but it still just lies there and dies there.
