This is exactly what you need to see at this very moment.

  2. There seemed to be a lot of "applause" for something that Liza could do with one hip (and I remember being quite the fan of Miss MacLaine's specials.) BTW, I'm hoping that middle "Two Shirleys" segment might one day be used in a "Shirley explains cell division" video for schoolchildren.

  4. You just know this was some producer who should have been long retired or dead or both thinking "This'll show those punk kids."

  6. There will always be a place in my heart for Shirley. This goes on for a little too long, but she nails the plucky-chorus-girl-gets-her-big-break act like no other. (Remember, it actually happened) Moreover, she looks better doing the steps than any of the dancers backing her up, though much could have been improved on that front by dressing them in sober black! She worked the gamin hair-cut like no other. Watch how the little flourishes and stops of her head punctuate the steps, catch the eye and accentuate the humour. Class! But in this case, less would have been better!
