Facts about

Carmen Miranda enjoyed her biggest film-song hit with the jaunty travel tune, "Cuanto la Gusta" (music by Gabriel Ruiz, lyrics by Ray Gilbert). Carmen's Decca single, blending her with The Andrews Sisters, peaked at number 12 in "Billboard," where the disc had a 14-week stay. In the picture, Miss Miranda's song and samba had the backing of 'Xavier Cugat' and His Orchestra. On Columbia Records, Cugi without Carmen scored a "Billboard"-charting success.
'Jane Powell (I)' and Kathryn Grayson both received credit for introducing the same movie song in the same year. Showcased in two Technicolor productions from Joe Pasternak is the sprightly refrain, "Love Is Where You Find It" (music by Nacio Herb Brown, lyrics by Earl K. Brent). Miss Powell's rendition comes early in this film, and Miss Grayson has been praised by movie fans and critics for the best song performance in the lavish costume musical, The Kissing Bandit. While Miss Powell had no commercial disc for sale, MGM Records issued as a single Miss Grayson's prerecordings of this lilt and another song from her vehicle, "What's Wrong With Me?" (music by Brown, lyrics by Edward Heyman). Kathryn's two vocals grace a CD devoted to her, called "My Heart Sings," released by Flare, a British label.
