SATURDAY MOVIE RECOMMENDATION 🎥🎬
This week's movie recommendation is a fun, bright and colourful tenchnicolour musical, The Gang's All Here (1943) 💗💜✨
Synopsis: Andy Mason, on leave from the army, falls for showgirl Eadie Allen a night before he has to leave for active duty. For his return, his wealthy father throws him a benefit show, inviting the troupe Eadie works for to perform 👯👯 Since Andy gave Eadie an assumed name, she didn't know that the show is in the honour of her absent sweetheart... nor did she know that her sweetheart has another lover waiting for him at the party - his family-arranged fiancée.. 💑
My rating: 4/5 ⭐️ I absolutely loved the lively energy this movie radiated! ✨ The vibrant colours, the camera work, and the musical numbers, (that are slightly crazy at times) were a visual delight. The characters and their funny and witty moments gave a light feel to the movie. All this came together to make 'The Gang's All Here' a very entertaining watch! 🙌 I don't believe that this is a movie you watch for its storyline at all, but for its spectacular and dazzling musical performances that are sure to make you smile with pleasure 😸💜
Have you watched this movie, and if you did, what did you think of it? 🎥

"Tropicalism was a movement of rupture that shook Brazilian popular music and culture between 1967 and 1968. Its participants formed a large collective, whose stars were the singer-songwriters Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, along with the singer Gal Costa and the singer-songwriter Tom Zé, rock band the Mutantes and arranger Rogério Duprat. Singer Nara Leão and lyricists José Carlos Capinan and Torquato Neto completed the group, which also included the graphic artist, songwriter and poet Rogério Duarte as one of its principal intellectual mentors.
The Tropicalists took a historic step forward in the Brazilian music scene. Brazilian music post-Bossa Nova and the definition of “musical quality” in the country were increasingly dominated by the traditional or nationalist positions of movements linked to the left. Against these trends, the Bahian collective and its collaborators aimed at universalizing the language of Brazilian Popular Music (MPB), incorporating elements from world youth culture, such as rock, psychedelia and the electric guitar. At the same time, they merged electricity with information from the erudite avant-garde, by means of the innovative arrangements of maestros such as Rogério Duprat, Júlio Medaglia and Damiano Cozzela. By uniting the popular and pop with esthetic experimentalism, Tropicalist ideas came to be the driving force behind the modernization of not only music, but the country’s national culture.
Following the best traditions of the great composers of Bossa Nova and incorporating new information and references from its time, Tropicalism radically renewed musical lyrics. Lyricists and poets, Torquato Neto and Capinan wrote songs with Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, works whose complexity and quality influenced various generations. Dialogs with literary works such as those of Oswald de Andrade and the Concretist poets raised some Tropicalist compositions to the status of poetry. Their songs formed a critical and complex picture of the country – a conjunction of the archaic Brazil of tradition and the modern Brazil of mass culture, and even a futurist Brazil."#graphicart #tropicalism#graphics#artofvisuals#carmenmiranda#visualart

Those who know me better know I'm an entertainer, a wonderful job that's allowed me to play many characters. One of the best performances I've ever made and enjoyed the most was imitating Carmen Miranda. That's why I had to take this pic with her star when I saw it
