Movie Info

This film focuses on a middle-aged Brazilian industrialist and his young cabaret performer look-a-like. The highlight of the entertainer's act is an imitation of the industrialist, which impresses the latter's associates. When the industrialist is unable to attend a business conference, his lieutenants persuade the entertainer to take his place.

Critic Reviews for That Night in Rio

All Critics (3)

Except for Miranda, it is, at best, tedious.

Everything gains life and color when Carmen Miranda dominates the scene. [Full review in Spanish]

September 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Yes, it's that kind of patently silly plot, but it works nicely here thanks to pleasant players, luminous Technicolor, a bright screenplay, and good songs.
