Carmen Miranda: The South American Way

Item Number:
50 min.

A & E Entertainment
With a shake of her hips, a flash of her smile, and a catchy Latin song, the lady with the tutti-frutti hat captivated audiences around the globe. Men adored her, women emulated her, and studio-heads and government officials capitalized on her international appeal. Carmen Miranda came from extreme poverty in Brazil to become the highest-salaried woman in America, earning over $200,000 from Twentieth Century Fox in 1945. BIOGRAPHY explores Miranda's life, from her rise as one of Brazil's most flamboyant, sensual singers to her starring roles in Hollywood musicals like That Night in Rio, Springtime in the Rockies, and The Gang's All Here. Extensive clips capture the Miranda's fiery appeal, while interviews with friends reveal the depression and exhaustion that may have contributed to her sudden death at age 46. And never-before seen footage from Brazil, rare stills, home movies and personal artifacts unveil the woman beneath the hat. BIOGRAPHY presents the tale of a true original who overcame cultural barriers to secure a place as one of Hollywood's most beloved performers.
