USA 1948
Dir Michael Curtiz, Busby Berkeley
With Doris Day, Jack Carson, Janis Paige
Certificate U

In this musical of mistaken identities, Day takes a cruise to Rio and finds herself falling in love with the private eye sent to follow her. Day was already a singing sensation when she made her big-screen debut, but the transition feels effortless. And look out for the great turn from African-American Broadway star, Avon Long, during a stop-off in Cuba.
