What a gal is Alice Faye. Sound the alarm men for Carmen Miranda. Laugh your fill with Phil Baker. Let your cheers ring for the King of Swing Benny Goodman and his Orchestra. (Trade paper ad). See more »
Incorrectly regarded as goof: As the passengers disembark the ship within the first 3 minutes of the film, a series of mechanical-looking large shadows can be easily seen moving across the painted backdrop of buildings intended to be far in the distance. This is actually a stage set of a musical production, thus not filmed as a real scene. See more »
This is one of Carmen Miranda's films that deserve to go to DVD for scores more to enjoy. The latest rumor to hit the DVD release community is that there are talks to release this to DVD. Although it's script is campy and Ms. Miranda butchers the English language; the film is still light hearted and filled with wonderful musical numbers. If you're lucky to catch this on TMC or AMC you defiantly need to watch this if 40's MGM musical's are you thing. This film was right in the middle of Buzby Burkley's success in lavish musical numbers and that alone is worth the viewing. This film also marks the Carmen Miranda's noted, "Lady in the tutti fruiti hat" song.
