“Ginger Harmon and the Mercer Brothers don South American garb for Tica Ti – Tica Ta. Ginger sings well and the nimble Mercer boys contribute a fast dance routine. There’s also a conga line of good-looking gals in at the close.”
Ginger Harmon was popular nightclub singer who toured the US in the early 1940’s. Bud and Jim Mercer headed for Hollywood after early success in New York City and would go on to be dance extras in several movie musicals of the day along with this short film. Enlisting as WWII dawned halted their career, but in following years they would perform in USO and tours across the states.
