Wow. Wow. Wow. The choreography at 2:30 is... interesting.You know what I wish? I wish that in something like 1976, when both would have been very much available, someone had sat down and written a rock opera version of Imitation of Life for Mitzi and Lola Falana.
Ha! I knew exactly what "choreography" you were referring to!As for the rock opera, based on the year mentioned, Ken Russell would've had to direct it. I know what I'll be dreaming of tonight!
That instance at 2:28 is the first time I can ever recall seeing a fire baton routine without not only the fire, but also without any baton!
I hope that was performed on someone's Easter special.
I almost saved this for Easter but couldn't wait!
god is greatgod is goodlet us thank him for our mitziamen.
She borrowed the eye make-up from Miss Peggy Lee, the dress from Miss Ann Miller, and the hair from Mr Jeff Conaway!Fab!Jx
One never knows what to expect with Mitzi, but one is always entertained.Also, I kept waiting for one of the safety gays to trip over the mic cord, but no, that's why they're SAFETY gays.
Actually, when the dancers make their entrance at 0:33 and then when the choreography REALLY kicks in at 2:25, all I could think of was Maria Montez selecting victims during the cobra dance from "Cobra Woman." That must be the "profane" part!
This is precisely the sort of thing I missed when I was away for a month.
It's the Sweeney sisters come to life. What dreadful taste..and yet so watchable.
A couple decades later she'd have added "Church of the Poisoned Mind" to the mix!BrianB
HA! I'm sure you're right!
