A remake of IT'S A DATE (1940), which starred Deanna Durbin, NANCY GOES TO RIO features Sothern and Powell as a mother and daughter vying for the same part in a play and the same man--Sullivan. Sothern goes to Rio to ready herself for a part in a new play and Powell follows, revealing the

news that she got the part. The conflict is intensified with the mistaken belief that Powell is pregnant. In the end, Powell gets the part and Sothern gets Sullivan. The cast is uniformly good, with Calhern supplying some humor as Sothern's father, and it all amounts to pleasant entertainment.

Songs include "Time and Time Again" (Earl Brent, Fred Spielman, sung by Powell), "Shine On Harvest Moon" (Jack Norworth, Nora Bayes, sung by Powell, Sothern, Calhern), "Cha Bomm Pa Pa," "Yipsee-I-O" (Ray Gilbert, both sung by Miranda), "Magic Is the Moonlight" (Charles Pasquale, Maria Grever, sung

by Powell), "Musetta's Waltz" from "La Boheme" (Giacomo Puccini, sung by Powell), "Love is Like This" (Jay Gilbert, sung by Powell), and "Nancy Goes to Rio" (Georgie Stoll, Brent, sung by Beckett). This was Sothern's last film for MGM, ending a relationship that had started in 1929 when she signed

with the studio as a chorus girl named Harriet Lake.
