Rio Rita

Rio Rita (1942). This Abbott-and-Costello comedy, very loosely derived from the 1920s operetta of the same name, contains one interpolated Harburg-Arlen song, “Long Before You Came Along,” sung by John Carroll and Kathryn Grayson. Not to be confused with the 1929 film version with the same title to which Yip and Harold contributed no songs whatsoever.
