Here is a clip from the 1943 Busby Berkeley Technicolor Musical, "The Gang's All Here" starring Carmen Miranda:

It's rather sobering to contemplate that I've seen more parodies of Carmen Miranda (cartoons and otherwise) than I have actual performances (in fact, other than soundtrack appearances, I've only seen her in SCARED STIFF. You gotta love a woman who sings about enchiladas).

But she's so...parodiable!

And talented.

And pretty.

And enchiladas.

That was an honest mistake, Jay. It's a little known fact, but the Miranda Ruling originally came to be after convicts in San Quentin Prison were polled, and it was determined that over 90% of criminals would go quietly if arrested by Carmen Miranda.

(The number two choice was a tie between June Allyson and Vampira.)
