Article on Carmen Miranda

I hope you all enjoyed the screening of The Gang’s All Here (1943). The optional article is available through JSTOR (through the USF/NCF website). You can also download it here.

Those of you who have never seen any Carmen Miranda films before, you might recognize her costume from various aspects of pop culture. She was one of the most popular Hollywood stars for people to impersonate. I invite you to all consider where you may have seen people doing their version of Carmen Miranda either in the comments below or for Wednesday’s class.
