  3. I'm just happy to finally see a high-quality video of her act, even if it's towards the end of her career. She was sixty when she did this.

  4. When those boys sing that she is the fabulous, fabulous girl of their dreams, I don't doubt it for a minute!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this... I'm currently reading the Kay Thompson biography - which I highly recommend if you love showbiz - and I'm inspired by her chutzpah and rise to the absolute heights of radio, movies and beyond... a remarkable story of her sheer force of will!

    1. I definitely plan on reading that book! Just watched Liza tell some Kay stories and do "I Love a Violin". Talk about chutzpah!

      Thank you for posting so many wonderful videos!

  6. That is one hell of a lot of Safety Gays.

    And, just in case anybody's making any plans, I would happily take a bearded Robert Goulet, circa '69, as a Christmas present.

    Oh, hell, who am I kidding? I'd just a happily take that pantsuit...

    1. Oh, that Robert Goulet kiss was the icing on the fabulously frosted cake!

    2. I think That Robert Goulet Kiss will be the title of my next sensitive young-adult novel about a boy in the Midwest coming out in the late '60s. A bus-and-truck of Camelot will feature prominently.

      What? What do you mean autobiographical? Of course not!

    3. Sounds like a splendid idea!

      I was all about Mr. Goulet back then! In ways I had yet to fully understand...
