Who could completely resist a picture with Carmen Miranda having a bowl of fruit on top of her head?

Audience Reviews for Nancy Goes to Rio

Splashy and elaborate musical is tuneful and humorous. Ann Sothern, Jane Powell and Louis Calhern all give funny spirited performances in a plot that is of course absurd. Carmen Miranda is along for the ride and her outfits are a sight to behold! Her umbrella number is a feast for the eyes and of course she gives it all she's got. Good fun.
