Like many old songs, this one has enjoyed a long and varied history. It was sung in the 1945 Disney cartoon movie "The Three Caballeros" just one year after it first charted by Phil Brito at #17 in 1944. (Hey, fellow Baby Boomers -- have you ever realized how many great songs, including classics, we were first exposed to because they were on the soundtracks of the cartoons we watched on TV?) It was later included in the film "The Gay Ranchero" where it was performed by Roy Rogers, and found its way into still another movie in 1951 when Ezio Pinza sang it in "Mr. Imperium." I'm told it showed up yet again, as recently as 2004, in the movie "Napoleon Dynamite" but I managed to miss that one so I can't swear to the fact.
