Mitzi Gaynor Is The Ultimate Triple Threat. She can dance, sing, act and do comedy. Does that make her a quadruple threat? Yes! Mitzi is amazing. Check out this video retrospective on her 10 fantastic TV specials that were truly special.
If you are too young to know who she is, Mitzi starred on many films including 'South Pacific' and 'There's No Business Like Show Business', was a huge hit in Las Vegas and on Broadway and holds the record for the longest applause during an Academy Awards show (Shew performed the song "Georgie Girl' to an endless standing ovation.
Her special were chock full of her enormous talent, lots of singing, dancing, comedy and lots of Bob Mackie gowns on her perfect body. Also a string of guest stars unlike no other show.
One of my favorites is the song 'Let Go!' She is surrounded by 24 dancers in tuxedos, wearing the most amazing, skin tight, shimmering, beaded gown and singing the great jazz song by Brazilian Baden Powell. The song simmers and explodes as does Mitzi.
Enough gushing, buy this DVD.
