Mexican Hayride opened on January 28, 1944 and ran for well over a year. Produced by Michael Todd, with a cast of 99, has not been seen in New York in 70 years. Joe, a small-time American racketeer in Mexico on the run from the FBI, tries to elude the local authorities (and his wife) but runs afoul of a female bullfighter - Montana, her manager - Lombo, and Latin singer - Lolita. Songs include "A Humble Hollywood Executive", "He Certainly Kills the Women", "There Must Be Someone for Me", "Sing to Me Guitar".
