The Brazil Travel Center Movie of the Week: Girl From Rio

I purchased this film years ago off the recommendation of a friend. The Girl from Rio stars Hugh Laurie, of House fame, as a British banker who falls in love with Rio. In particular, he is fascinated with a samba dancer. The banker finds himself flush with cash and decides to make a run for Rio. My favorite scene is when he arrives in Rio and looks out his hotel window, suddenly stating, “Copacabana! I’m in Copacabana! That’s Copacabana!” Classic moment.
