Copacabana is a 1947 musical comedy directed by Alfred E. Green. Nightclub performers Lionel Q. Devereaux (Groucho Marx) and Carmen Novarro (Carmen Miranda), who have been engaged for over a decade, are trying to achieve fame in New York City show business. Unfortunately, they are not very successful due to Lionel's complete lack of singing talent. Pretending like he is a well-known casting agent, Lionel introduces himself to Steve Hunt (Steve Cochran), the owner of the Copacabana nightclub, and persuades Steve to watch Miranda perform. After Miranda does a song-and-dance number, Steve is impressed, but he wants to see another of Lionel's acts. Lionel then has Carmen wear a veil and pretend that she is Mademoiselle Fifi, a talented French singer. When Steve decides to hire both the women for an upcoming performance, Lionel and Carmen go through a series of comic misadventures as they try to keep up their charade.
