An American girl on vacation in Argentina falls for a wealthy racehorse owner.
The part of Ricardo Quintana was intended for Desi Arnaz following his stage success in Rodgers and Hart's "Too Many Girls," but Arnaz was already committed to RKO's film version of that musical, which was shooting simultaneously. As a result, Fox stalwart Don Ameche was cast in Down Argentine Way (1940).
Glenda Crawford, aka Glenda Cunningham:
Excuse me, I've got to go see a man about a horse.
Although Edward Fielding is listed in the credits as having portrayed Glenda Crawford's father, Willis Crawford, he is only seen at the Tuxedo Horse Show near the start of the film. He has no other scenes.
