Product Description:

Hotel magnate Edwardo Acuna has a thorn in his side. Maria (Rita Hayworth), his beautiful nubile daughter, refuses to seriously consider marriage. A traditional patriarch, Mr. Acuna wants his girls married off one by one. So until Maria's mated, he won't allow either of her lovesick younger sisters to wed.
