The singular Busby Berkeley’s first film in Technicolor, 1943’s The Gang’s All Here is a hallucinatory excursion into spectacular visuals, mad choreography, and delicious music.


Carmen Miranda goes bananas in 1943’s The Gang’s All Here.

Nominally starring the lovely Alice Faye and featuring the scintillating talents of Benny Goodman and his Orchestra, the film is perhaps best remembered today for the efforts of Carmen Miranda, leading a corps of banana-wielding dancers in the scandalous “The Lady in the Tutti Frutti Hat.”

-Isolated Score Track (with some dialogue and effects)
-Audio Commentary with Film Historian Drew Casper
