I love it when the back-up singers carry the boa away. It just cracks me up!
I got to play one of my favorite guessing games with those gals- bell bottoms or gown?
What a fabulous game, and so appropriate for this number!
There is always something so charming about a cheerful slut like A-M.
Is it just me, or does Ann-Margret look ferociously sunburnt in this clip?
I was wondering if this was just after her big fall and the facial reconstruction which followed. It seems like it might be, though I could be wrong.
No, darling, Miss Ann-Margret suffered her fall in 1972, and this positively screams 1978!
By "big fall" I meant "baked beans and chocolate pudding", of course!
This was positively glorious in all of it's sequin, hip shaking, white polyester bell bottom glory! Wasn't this the "Mackie" creation that she wore in that conflabulation with TV Guide superimposing Oprah's head on her bod for a cover article?
I forgot all about that TV Guide fiasco!As an aside, I'd like to add that Melissa Manchester also did a cover of this song, though with less sequins.
Miss Melissa is not a sequin kinda girl......she's a bit more laid back than in your face glittery! Except when she's showing off her bodacious ta ta's in a leatherette bustier and opera length gloves!
Or when she's like this!
The back-up singers didn't carry the boa away. They were reclaiming borrowed property. Just sayin'.......
And back-stage, the safety gays arm-wrestled them for it! Just sayin'... Jx
The way AM handles that mike cord is amazing.
I was thinking the same thing! There was a lot of potential for unwanted entanglements!
Miss Ann-Margret is the empress of this and all universes; we can only be grateful to be her subjects.
There's more than a smidge of Googie Gomez in Annie's entrance.
