The Blind Man and Marlon Brando’s Wife, on Paradise Isle

A few years before this movie was filmed, RKO studios was filming a big-budget pre-code musical staring Dolores Del Rio and Gene Raymond. There were two actors who were working together for the first time in that RKO movie, and the screen performance of these two actors electrified the big screen, changing both of their lives forever.

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers would go on to become one of the most famous song and dance couples in motion picture history because of their small part in that movie. While Fred Astair and Ginger Rogers were dancing for the first time on screen, actress Movita was singing the Carioca song that they were dancing to.

Maria Luisa ‘Movita’ Castaneda was born on a train from Mexico as it approached Nogales, Arizona, making her an American citizen by birth. Legendary actor Marlon Brando would make Movita his second of three wives.

In this adventure, Movita is a South Seas Island girl who discovers a blind man who has washed up on shore. She will fall in love with the blind man, and he with her, but her island boyfriend will do whatever it takes to see that they do not stay together. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
