Pidgeon is the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico. His daughter Powell thinks she is in love with the much older Iturbi. McDowall is her jealous boy friend, and Massey is the love interest for Pidgeon. A simplistic story that's really just an excuse for lavish song-and-dance numbers, it features lots

of color, big sets, and all-out production numbers. Cugat and his orchestra perform a few Latin tunes, and Iturbi takes on Rachmaninoff and Chopin. There are also some arrangements of Wagner thrown in with the Latin numbers. Of historical interest, Cuban premier Fidel Castro appeared in HOLIDAY IN

MEXICO as a teenager. According to Cugat, Castro appeared in several crowd scenes in several South American-theme movies because he was a "typical Latin American boy." Songs: "I Think of You" (Jack Elliott, Don Marcotte--based on the 2nd theme of the 1st movement of Sergei Vassilievich

Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2), "Walter Winchell Rhumba" (Carl Sigman, Noro Morales), "Yo Te Amo Mucho--And That's That" (Sammy Stept, Ervin Drake, Cugat, Morales), "You, So It's You" (Earl Brent, Nacio Herb Brown), "And Dreams Remain" (Ralph Freed, Raoul Soler), "Holiday in Mexico" (Freed,

Sammy Fain), "Ave Maria" (Franz Peter Schubert), "Les Filles de Cadiz" (Leo Delibes, Alfred De Musset), "Italian Street Song" (Victor Herbert, Rida Johnson Young), "Polonaise in A Flat Major" (Frederic Francois Chopin), "Goodnight Sweetheart" (Ray Noble, James Campbell, Reg Connelly), "Three Blind

Mice" (arranged by Andre Previn), "The Music Goes 'Round and Around" (Red Hodgson, Ed Farley, Mike Riley), "Liebestod" (from "Tristan and Isolde" by Richard Wagner), and "Someone to Love."
