Video Beaverhausen: Carmen Miranda Is Copacetic at the Copacabana with Groucho
The pair had real comic chemistry in this film that is incredibly silly fun. It's directed with a sturdy hand by Alfred E. Green. And the eternally handsome Steve Cochran co-stars.
Complications ensue when agent Groucho books Carmen as two different acts at the Copa: as Carmen and French chanteuse Fifi.
Groucho gets in some great one-liners and works those eyebrows better than Joan Crawford. Miranda is also quite funny, displaying her comic talent.
It's all sit-comish but it's a lark. Recommended if you're looking just a little fun from the golden days of Hollywood. And a Tico Tico to you all!
