Both great movies, looking forward to watching them again, especially *Hattie* . I'll watch anything with Sothern, Ragland, and Virginia O'Brien. Nice to see *Rio* , too, one of the few Carmen Miranda films TCM is able to show.

Now *there* is someone I would really like to see get a day of "Summer Under the Stars". Carmen Miranda, I mean. Obviously it couldn't happen without Fox being willing to lease some of their films to TCM. She's never been honoured in SUTS, has she?

*She's never been honoured in SUTS, has she?*

 

Definitely not. I even tried to schedule a day of her films in my Challenge entry, but couldn't because of the Fox stranglehold. The closest we can get is Mickey Rooney's impersonation of her in *Babes on Broadway* . Love to see that one again, too.
