Movie Info

Lana Turner stars in this musical/romantic comedy amalgam from director Mervyn Leroy. Turner plays Nora Taylor, a wealthy heiress who finds herself seeing a psychiatrist because she can't decide whether she is loved for herself or her money. When her rich boyfriend (John Lund) takes off for Brazil, Nora tags along with him, hinting that the trip will improve their relationship. But once in Brazil, her boyfriend seems more interested in business dealings than love. As she waits around for her disinterested suitor, she meets a handsome Latin millionaire (Ricardo Montalban), and his charm makes her fall for him immediately. While this relationship is coalescing, Nora's boyfriend is beginning to notice her vivacious secretary Anne Kellwood (Jean Hagen).

Audience Reviews for Latin Lovers

There's a reason this is one of Miss Turner's more obscure titles. Lesser Lana with plush trappings but a silly story line with horribly dated gender attitudes. Lana's clothes are beautiful but her hair is shellacked into place throughout, its not unattractive but is strangely immobile.

Super Reviewer

5.5/10. Routine story, predictable, not very original but still entertaining. Very good production. The sets and costumes are all first rate. The cast is fine, no one stands out much. Jean Hagen is good in a supporting role.
