fun, upbeat marriage and divorce farce
17 October 2007 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Non stop puns. That and a whole lot of song and dance, tap dancing, and verbal sparring are what we get in "Thrill of Brazil." All in good natured fun, Steve (Keenan Wynn, Annie get your Gun ) and John ( Allyn Joslyn) are fighting over Vicki (Evelyn Keyes, Gone with the Wind, many others). Meanwhile, Ann Miller is caught up in the whirlwind as Linda Lorens, tries to sing and dance her way through the her entertainment numbers. Also some great music from Enric Madriguera and his orchestra, as well as Tito Guízar, all of whom actually did perform and record in public at the time. This film might have been even more hokey if the music and dance weren't so good. Filmed after the war, so the mood is very upbeat and happy. Ann Miller had been making movies for 10 years by now, but she still has the look and demeanor of a young, rookie, but this could just be good acting on her part. Interesting scene where Vicki captures some of the local downtown market scenes and fights in pencil drawings, to be used in their nightclub act later. Several sight gags have a vaudevillian feel, but it all works. Although she was a major starlet in her own right, Evelyn Keyes is also known for her marriages to the bigshots Artie Shaw, John Huston, Charles Vidor. Also look for Ludwig, played by the always funny Felix Bressart, who had made "Shop around the Corner" with J Stewart. Bressart and Wynn had just made "Without Love" together in 1945.
