  1. Imelda Stauton was brilliant in the National Theatre's production of Follies. Her interpretation of "Losing My Mind." Wow!
  2. To clarify, Disney Plus does not cut Dumbo and Peter Pan. They have Content Advisories:
  3. In his memoir Finishing the Hat: Collected Lyrics (1954–1981) with Attendant Comments, Principles, Heresies, Grudges, Whines and Anecdotes, Stephen Sondheim describes how the composition of the song "Rose's Turn" from Gypsy began as "three exhilarating hours of musical and choreographic improvisation [with choreographer Jerome Robbins] , as we shaped and constructed the number to be a summary of the score." The number is designed to present Madame Rose's nervous breakdown, but the only time I've seen the breakdown fully realized was in the performance by Imelda Staunton in the 2015 revival o
  4. Yvonne De Carlo's is my favorite rendition of "I'm Still Here," but, yes, Polly Bergen's performance of the song is indeed brilliant. The verse that contains the line "I should've gone to an acting school, that seems clear" features some amazing acting by Polly Bergen. ( the verse that begins with "I've been through Reno . . . In the version sung by Polly Bergen the original line "I lived through Brenda Frazier "is replaced with "I lived through Shirley Temple." I admit I had to look up Brenda d Frazier to find out who she was when I first head "I'm Still Here."
  5. I love the way "Maybe This Time" is presented by Bob Fosse in Cabaret. Sally Bowles gives this amazing performance of the song at the Kit Kat Club, and the camera pulls back to reveal that there is hardly anyone in the audience that night.
  6. What a wonderful body of work Stephen Sondheim gave the world. If forced to chose a favorite Sondheim musical I would probably pick Follies. My favorite version of "I'm Still Here" is the one by Yvonne De Carlo, who played thee role of Carlotta Campion in the original Broadway production of Follies.
  7. As part of its spotlight on Dance Numbers , TCM is airing Bob Fosse's Cabaret on Monday November 29 at 8 PM Eastern followed by All That Jazz. Both movies feature Fosse's distinctive choreographic style and blend drama and musical numbers.
  8. Words To Live By From The Five Little Peppers: "If you don't say pass and please, you don't get syrup." - Phronsie Pepper in Five Little Peppers At Home
  9. Yes! Here's a clip of Bette Davis singing the song on the TV show I've Got A Secret during a appearance with Olivia de Havilland promoting the movie: Good work, MilesArcher. It's your turn.
  10. TCM aired all of the Five Little Pepper movies in 2018 as part of a spotlight on movie series. I'm not sure if they've shown them since then. I recorded them on my DVR and have not erased them. I hope my DVR doesn't crash! I love those movies.
  11. "Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay" is a music hall song of disputed authorship that was popular in the 1890s. English singer and dancer Lottie Collins heard the song in the US during a vaudeville tour and introduced it to London music halls in 1891. It became her signature piece that incorporated high kicks. A bit of the song was sung by Georges Hautecourt (voiced by Charles Lane) in Disney's The Aristocats (which is where I first heard it).
  12. "They Always Pick On Me" with lyrics by Stanley Murphy and music by Harry Von Tilzer. It was sung by Alice Faye in the movie Hello, Frisco, Hello, but the version I'm most familiar with is the one sung by Betty Boop in MInnie The Moocher.
  13. Liza Minnelli also recorded a version of the song "Come Saturday Morning." It was the title track of her second studio album for A&M. Liza's recording includes some of her dialogue from The Sterile Cuckoo.
  14. Yes! The song is indeed "A Whole New World" from Aladdin. Here's a clip of Brad Kane and Lea Salonga (the singing voices of Aladdin and Jasmine) performing the song at the 1993 Oscar show followed by a clip of Alan Menken and Tim Rice winning the award: Great job, MilesArcher. It's your turn.
