I didn't realize they were airing it again this week. Watched it both times last week and really loved it.

It was wonderful.  It's too bad she never had the chance to do "Gypsy" on Broadway.  In this documentary, I learned that she introduced "Maybe This Time", written personally for her by Fred Ebb.

"Noel [Coward] and I were in Paris once. Adjoining rooms, of course. One night, I felt mischievous, so I knocked on Noel's door, and he asked, 'Who is it?' I lowered my voice and said 'Hotel detective. Have you got a gentleman in your room?' He answered, 'Just a minute, I'll ask him.'" (Beatrice Lillie)

Was she ever considered for a Broadway run of Gypsy?   I think she would have been great in the role.

I watched the Julie Andrews Cinderella last night. Had no clue she was in it. A very pleasant surprise.

Just give the world Love.
