Not Rated | | Comedy, Musical
A mother and daughter compete over the same singing role and, unbeknownst to each other, the same man.
One of several Jane Powell vehicles that concerned a pubescent character falling in love with an older man. At the time these films were made, there was a charm to younger people histrionically 'play acting' adult emotions, but modern-day audiences are largely put off by the admittedly uneasy plotlines of these movies, and Nancy Goes to Rio (1950) may be the worst offender, as it involves a mother and daughter competing for the same man.
When Nancy returns to her room after the shipboard dinner, it is late at night, but whenever we see the ocean behind her, it is bright day.
Miss Miranda accompanied by Bando da Lua
A whole musical number, "Mention My Name In Sheboygan", performed by Jane Powell & Scotty Beckett, was ultimately cut from the final film. Clips of this scene are still in existence.
