I started to look for things connected with my youth. the Garcias whom were a dance team are my brother and sister. I have been looking to purchase this movie and would like to know how and where.. I was very surprised to see this movie picture come up, The Garcias were a great dance team that also danced at the copacabana and other clubs of the 50's. There are other movies that they danced in most of the time with Xavier Cugat. Looking for those The internet is a wonderful thing. I am also proud to know that my brother was, in fact the first to dance with a glass of water on his head.I haven't seen it in at least 30 years. I thought it was great.
