The Gang’s All Here


(Busby Berkeley, 1943).
This lavish World War II musical is full of bizarre eye-popping numbers that include some of Berkeley’s most imaginative work, especially those featuring Carmen Miranda, that one-of-a-kind camp-follower’s dream. Most spectacular of all—The Lady in the Tutti Frutti Hat, with chorus girls galore and aggressively phallic giant bananas.
