Argentine Nights (1940) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring The Ritz Brothers, The Andrews Sisters, Constance Moore,

George Reeves, Peggy Moran, Anne Nagel, Paul Porcasi

Directed by Albert S. Rogell



Print: black/white

Runtime: 75 min.

Genre: musical

Print Quality: B



The Andrews Sisters made their screen debut in Argentine Nights, but the

stars of the show are the Ritz Brothers, in the first of their four Universal

vehicles. The wafer-thin plotline finds the Ritz boys showing up flat broke

in Argentina with an all-girl band. Despite their utter lack of funds, the

zany trio tries to save a local hotel from the clutches of a con man.

Highlights include the Ritz Brothers' famous "hero sandwich" routine

(repeated by the two surviving brothers in 1975's Blazing Stewardesses)

and a perversely hilarious climax in which the Ritzes are called upon to

impersonate the Andrews Sisters (which may have given rise to Patty

Andrews' oft-quoted observation "We looked like the Ritz Brothers in

drag"). As a bonus for fans of the Superman TV series, nominal romantic

lead George Reeves warbles the deathless tune "Amigo We Go Riding

Tonight".
