Bandleader Xavier Cugat and his then-wife, sultry songstress Abbe Lane, are the principal attractions of the Spanish Susana y Mo (Susana and Me). But while Ms. Lane plays Susana, the "Me" in the film is not Cugat, but a nerdish college professor played by Jorge Riviere. When he's not contending with his rivals for Abbe's affections, Riviere must deal with his beloved's screwy family, especially her invention-happy uncle Felix Fernandez. Since Abbe Lane's character is a nightclub singer, her musical duets are logically woven into the proceedings. Susan y Mo did quite well in Latin America, though it curiously fizzled out in the US.
