The color transfer of Down Argentine Way is fantastic. The flesh tones are rich, the costumes are luscious, and even the outdoor stock footage is incredibly vivid...Carmen Miranda sings a couple of numbers in the film, but it couldn't have taken more than a day to shoot her set--or two days, one to put on her costume and one to film. (Argentine Way also contains worse than average negative stereotyping of Hispanic characters.)
