"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

And I thought I was the only one.

Borstal--that's the ultimate Dolores Gray number--she actually KILLS the chorus boys. (To Jack Cole choreography!)

They don't make 'em like her anymore.

An interesting tidbit about Gray from IBDB:

On 5/28/59 during "Destry Rides Again", the curtain caught fire but she kept singing while the firemen put it out.

I've always suspected Dolores Gray had a little freak in her.

I love Dolores Gray, but she always reminded me of that line from the film version of Truman Capote's "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (not knowing whether to attribute it to Truman or George Axelrod), "Yes, she's a phony, but she's a REAL phony..."

There's a record of her live at some London nightspot in the 1960's (that I wish someone would release on CD) and she says of her accompaniest that "he's more than a wonderful accompaniest, he's a wonderful human being"

You have to love her for stuff like that.
