Interestingly, the original lyrics (by Lorenz Hart) were "pansies and rough guys"!
Wow. I did not see that nervous breakdown bit coming on. Not the most nuanced of players, but Miss Morgan certainly can put one over...
I was equally taken aback. She just went there. Who knew she had it in her?
I try to squeeze "I wish I was dead" into my renditions of most every song.If you ever get the chance, read crazy Rex Reed's review of this special: "Waving her arms wildly and moving her mouth like Lizabeth Scott with a novocained upper lip, she sang "Ten Cents A Dance" like Vaughn Monroe ("It's a queer rumance...customers crush my tosh..."). I'm not suggesting she has a lisp, but I feel certain her career would be over if she ever had an adenoid operation."That's just scratching the surface! The whole review can be found in his hi-larious book Big Screen, Little Screen.
Oh my god. I sing "I wish I was dead" whenever I think of Rex Reed!Thanks for the lovely anecdote. Another reason why I adore you! xoxo
I had a hard time getting past the frosty Freeze Vanilla Swirl hairdo.
Exactly! I mean they may tear her gown, but I pity the "rough guy or sailor" who dared muss up that hair.
Ms. Morgan attended Juilliard. Just let that sink in for a minute.
Relate? Yes, we can.Jx
