The Latest on DVD: Miranda Rights

As a connoisseur of cinematic camp classics, you have the right to be ecstatic about The Carmen Miranda Collection,a new box set featuring five of the Brazilian Bombshell's best.

Three of the five -- Greenwich Village, If I'm Lucky and Something for the Boys -- are new to DVD, but the best news is a newly restored print of The Gang's All Here, easily her most famous -- or infamous -- film. The extravagant "The Lady in the Tutti-Frutti Hat" production number, courtesy of Busby Berkeley, must be seen to be believed. Rounding out the set is Doll Face, previously only available in poor public domain prints.
