A very rare document. This is the only segment left out of the Brazilian film "Banana da Terra" (1939). Nothing else survived the time. That's the first time Carmen Miranda ever appeared wearing a Bahiana outfit in a movie. Americans hadn't "discovered" her as yet. The original routine is shorter, this one has been edited. Enjoy!
Um documento muito raro. Este é o único segmento que sobrou do filme "Banana da Terra" (1939). Nada mais sobreviveu ao tempo. Esta foi a primeira vez em que Carmen Miranda apareceu vestida de baiana num filme. Os americanos não a tinham "descoberto" ainda. O número original é mais curto. Este foi editado. Aproveitem!
Lucille Ball impersonates Carmen Miranda in this classic episode of I Love Lucy. Carmen was often taken either as Mexican or Cuban, and speaking Spanish. She was actually from Brazil in South America and spoke Portuguese. She however was proud of also giving her dedication to all Latin America with her work in showbiz. First aired on October 22, 1951.
From the "Baby Puss" Episode, 1943.
