UW Cinematheque - Carmen Miranda x 2

4070 Vilas Hall
Cast: Don Ameche, Betty Grable, Carmen Miranda In her Hollywood debut, Carmen Miranda plays herself and she is a dynamic wonder singing several numbers with her original Brazilian band. Miranda also lends support to the romantic storyline between American Grable (in the role that launched her stardom) and Argentinian horse breeder Ameche. A dance sequence featuring the jaw-dropping choreography of the Nicholas Brothers is just one of the many highlights in this fun Technicolor gem.
