(Original Caption) That’s Carmen Miranda and ‘Carmen Mirooney’. If you can take the hint from the latter name, you’ll guess who that is on the right. It’s none other than Mickey Rooney, all made up for his impersonation of the fiery Latin in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s Babes on Broadway. When she heard that Mickey was doing the impression, she took time off from her own work in Week-End in Havana, at Twentieth Century-Fox and visited the box office king. Mickey was eager for the coaching she gave him during his number. ‘Already she (Mickey) is better than she (Miranda),’ says Carmen when Mickey tries to thank her for her help. It was one of the most difficult acts ever done by Mickey for a picture. He studied Portuguese with a tutor for two weeks, then took two hours to be made up for the role every morning.

Carmen Miranda Wearing Lighthouse Headdress

(Original Caption) 11/12/1945-Hollywood, CA: Individualist Carmen Miranda- she of the platform-soled shoes and second glance headgear- reveals a shapely bit of her legs in her newest star-spangled creation. The Latin-American bombshell tops her bizarre costume with a miniature lighthouse. No, brother, you can’t be taller than she is.
