Carmen Miranda Collection (R1) in June - Artwork added

Fox Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of the Carmen Miranda Collection on 17th June 2008. Paying tribute to the best-loved and most colourful performer from the canon of Fox musicals, the Carmen Miranda Collection features five of the iconic Portuguese star’s most popular films, including Doll Face, Greenwich Village, If I'm Lucky and Something For The Boys, debuting on Region 1 DVD for the first time. The collection also includes a newly remastered version of The Gang’s All Here. A pop culture phenomenon whose influence remains to this day, Miranda gained fame for popularizing the samba, donning elaborate headdresses made of fruit and wearing her trade-mark sarongs, earning her two nicknames - The Brazilian Bombshell and The Lady in the Tutti Frutti hat.

The Carmen Miranda Collection will be available for the suggested retail price of $49.98. Each title is also available individually for $14.98 SRP. Fox Home Entertainment will also be releasing other popular films starring Carmen Miranda including Weekend In Havana, That Night In Rio and Down Argentine Way, priced separately at $19.98 SRP each.
