Hello, Hello Brazil! (Portuguese: Allô, Allô, Brasil!) is a 1935 Brazilian musical film directed by Wallace Downey and Adhemar Gonzaga, starring Carmen Miranda. The screenplay was written by Alberto Ribeiro and João de Barro.
Wallace Downey began producing copies of successful musical films-Americans with Brazilian artists, many of whom were already famous artists from radio, such as Carmen Miranda, who starred this movie of 1935. A co-production between Waldown Filmes and Cinédia, Allô, Allô, Brasil! presented a multitude of singers, comedians and radio presenters, like the singers Francisco Alves and Mário Reis.
The close ties with the world of radio also manifested in the films storyline, written by popular composers duo João de Barros and Alberto Ribeiro, showing the adventures of a "radiomaníaco" who falls for a singer radio nonexistent.
The two genres of music synonymous with the carnival, including the samba and the march, had a prominent place in the first Brazilian musical movies and popular movies.
