A literal dozen safety gays can't hold her back. (She's always reminded me of a drunk at the end of a party doing an imitation of the imitation that Jane Russell does of Marilyn Monroe in the courthouse scene of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Sure, it's amusing for a second but we'd really rather that she just go home.)
It's a safety gay stampede!
You always keep hoping she will clear her throat
I really must show this to the producers of my upcoming television spectacular. And to my hairdresser, for that matter.
Given that Betty Hutton songs were covered -- note for note -- by both Bette Midler and Björk, Miss Hutton must have had some sort of charm but I've yet to locate it.
She is an enigma wrapped in a foghorn.
Betty Hutton isn't so much an acquired taste, as an acquired tolerance. In this clip she seems to have grown thick, dark caterpillar eyebrows like Joan Crawford had in the film "Straitjacket" = even the hairdo is similar to Joan's!!!
She could be a lot to take in but when she calmed down and delivered a number she was very good. Her recording of It Had to Be You is quite beautiful. Here however we get Full Frontal Betty!
Doesn't the cameraman seem sort of afraid of her? If he was shooting from any farther back, he'd be out on the street. Not that blame him.
Hey,She's no Martha Raye, but I can dance to Lawrence Welk if I have to.*Struts away, feeling quite bawdy, wondering what kind of meds she kept in her purse...*
