Director: Busby Berekeley Cast: Alice Faye, Carmen Miranda, Benny Goodman In one of the most dazzling of 40s Technicolor musicals, a benefit show with a variety of performers serves as the setting for the nominal romance between a USO volunteer (Faye) and a soldier. Berkeley’s eye-popping choreography reached its zenith with Miranda’s “Lady in the Tutti-Frutti Hat” number and the indescribable “Polka Dot” finale, showcased here in a superb 35mm print from the Fox archives.
