Movies starring »

This is a complete filmography of Carmen Miranda, a Portuguese-Brazilian singer, actress, and dancer. By the mid-1930s, Carmen Miranda had become the most popular female singer in Brazil, and one of the nation's first film stars. In her lifetime she had appeared in six Brazilian films and fourteen US productions. Sadly, the only glimpses that today's audiences can have of her Brazilian screen performances are in the recently restored Alô, Alô, Carnaval (1936) and a tantalisingly brief clip from Banana da Terra (1939), in which she first wore on screen what would become her iconic baiana costume and extravagant turban. In 1939 she became a star on Broadway, at the invitation of US show business impresario, Lee Shubert, and just two years later was under contract with the 20th Century-Fox studios in Hollywood. Her most memorable performances are in the musical numbers of films such as Down Argentine Way (1940), Week-End in Havana (1941), That Night in Rio (1941) and The Gang's All Here (1943).
