| They Shouldn't Have Met in Argentina or Anywhere Else
This musical is a real snore. How could the famous songwriting team of Rodgers and Hart write such insipid music? One would expect at least one song to rise to the level of American standard, but nothing here even comes close. The entire score isn't even tuneful—just blah.

The love story never gets developed. How do the lead characters fall in love when they spend so little time with each other in the film? No love scenes, only one short kiss at the end of the movie.

James Ellison sings one song, but Maureen O'Hara isn't used once. She actually could sing herself. She is used briefly in the production number, dancing with a partner, but she could actually dance. Her talents were wasted in this film.

The entire production suffers from lack of Technicolor. The sets, costumes, and even the horses would have benefited. Yes, I know it was very expensive then. Oh well, even if it had been used, it couldn't have saved the dismal scriptwriting and lousy music.
