| See the world RKO's way--entrenched in the studio!
Director John H. Auer also produced and gets a story credit for this lame Good Neighbor Policy musical with a superfluous plot--about the search for the prettiest girl from every nation by the editors of an American magazine--used merely as the pretext for another boy-meets-girl reluctant romance. Phillip Terry is a photographer (a womanizing "coyote") and Audrey Long is a gal-reporter with no-no on her lips and sí-sí in her eyes. As the secondary couple, politely squabbling Robert Benchley and Eve Arden liven things up, but the dire, padded screenplay isn't clever enough to hold interest. The song interludes (but not the Mexican stereotypes) may be of interest to historians of Latin-Americans depicted in the cinema, but this low-budget travelogue is strictly stock shots, rear projection and studio interiors. *1/2 from ****
