-- Tiresome romantic comedy set in Mexico City where a U.S. consulate official (Franchot Tone) tries to help a 17-year-old Minnesota girl (Shirley Temple) and an American corporal (Guy Madison) get married, despite endless complications which arouse the suspicions of his own fiance (Lina Romay). Directed by William Keighley, Temple's petulant, empty-headed character elicits little sympathy and the repetitive situations draw few smiles, though the colorful Mexican settings and characters add some badly needed interest. Romantic complications. (A-II) (br)
