Facts about

This film contains the last on-screen singing performance by The Andrews Sisters, who share with Bing Crosby the saucy Latin-swing hit, "You Don't Have to Know the Language" (music by Jimmy Van Heusen, lyrics by Johnny Burke). This number was revived splendidly by Lena Horne on two RCA Victor albums: "Songs by Burke and Van Heusen" (released in 1959), and "Lena at the Sands" (recorded live in Las Vegas, November 3-5, 1960).
The fifth of the seven Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour "Road" films.
