The Acunas, a rich Argentine family, have the tradition that the daughters have to get married in order, oldest first. When sister #1 gets married, sisters #3 and #4 put pressure on Maria, sister #2, because they have their husbands picked out already.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
This may not be the best starring vehicle for either Fred Astaire or Rita Hayworth but the latter is as lovely and enjoyable as ever while the former gets a few scenes to showcase his expected dance moves. The plot is fun, if ridiculous, the supporting cast do good work, and the title song is delightful (and undoubtedly already familiar to many viewers).
classic and iconic and quintessentially 40s in all its glitz and cheesiness. the whole film exists to worship at the feet of rita hayworth. I enjoyed the obvious queerness brought to the movie by Astair and and Schilling (the secretary)- Astair is supposedly in love with Rita when all he wants to do is dance.
