(Academy Award Nominee Included: Best Art Direction/The Gang's All Here) In a Hollywood career spanning only 14 films, Carmen Miranda (190955) became the biggest Latin American star in the world on the strength of her comic timing, physical magnetism, and iconic fruit headdresses. This set includes Busby Berkeley's The Gang's All Here from 1943, as well as Greenwich Village (1944), Doll Face (1945), Something for the Boys (1944)—starring as a wartime factory worker whose teeth can receive radio signals—and 1946's If I'm Lucky, with Miranda and frequent co-star Vivian Blaine singing "Bet Your Bottom Dollar." Among the many DVD extras are the documentary Carmen Miranda: The Girl from Rio and five featurettes.
