Stars:

The Ritz BrothersAl RitzHarry Ritz
 
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".

  1. A forgotten gem 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 11th 2019

    I consider this film a forgotten gem, mainly for nostalgic reasons. Ok its not the greatest movie ever made but very enjoyable. It was the Andrew Sisters first film and for all the baby boomers out there it has George Reeves, TV's Superman. A very under rated and underused actor who was also an accomplished singer and guitar player he does warble a tune in this film. The print is very high quality and worth a look.
