  Carmen on Film Monday 1 July 2002  
What do Hollywood beauty Rita Hayworth, porn star Uta Levka and singer Beyoncé Knowles, a singer with the chart-topping band Destiny's Child, have in common? The answer is that they have all played Carmen on the big screen.

Research by Ann Davies from Newcastle University has uncovered more than 70 films ranging from silent movies to hip-hop opera.
Ann Davies explains to Jenni the attraction of Bizet's Spanish gypsy girl.
