I just watched "ON THE RIVIERA" with Danny Kaye,Gene Tierney and

Corinne Calvert,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

And it had somewhat of the same plot and was real good,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

WARNING: PLOT SYNOPSIS. DON'T READ IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED.

So I watched Copacabana to the end. Carmen Miranda is pretending to be two different nightclub singers in the same club. One of them wears a mysterious veil. In between numbers, she has to rush to her dressing room, get out of her Brazilian bombshell outfit and into her "Mademoiselle Fifi" outfit. The only person who knows that Carmen and Fifi are one and the same is her boyfriend and manager, Groucho, who gets into trouble when he sells Carmen's and Fifi's contracts to two different people. The only way to solve this is for "Fifi" to mysteriously vanish, but then foul play is suspected, and Groucho is a suspect. "Fifi's" boyfriend (not Groucho) is determined to get to the bottom of things.

William, you don't need to rent it, you can watch it on the home page of this site. There's a link.

Since I already have it on DVD, I just popped it in and started watching it. This is so nostalgic. The hairstyles, the music, everything. Here comes Carmen doing her stuff. :-)

I actually have Copacabana on DVD, but thanks for posting a link to the whole movie, Kevin. I will watch it at some point this weekend. From what I remember, it's silly and fun. I thought Groucho Marx and Carmen Miranda work surprisingly well as a comedy team.

Comment by Ktrek on July 16, 2016 at 9:10pm

You both are right. It is time (way past actually), so I'll see what I can do.

Yes I go along with what Rosie says,we need ,,another movie of the week..

Comment by Rosie Sayer on July 16, 2016 at 6:56pm

I think it's time for a new movie of the week!

Comment by Al Pearce on September 29, 2014 at 4:23pm

I see that the films discussed and presented here are mainly from the 1930s and the early 40s. ''Libeled Lady" is a favorite of mine as is ''Gung Ho!'' (a great Marine Corps action picture with Randolph Scott) and a few others in this list. Mind you, I haven't seen them all but I still have my gargantuan list of favorites.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
