More Lost "Mame"
The other day, I posted a video of Angela Lansbury recreating his title performance from the 1983 Broadway revival of Mame. Let's head back to the theater for more evidence of what Hollywood screwed up by not let her bring that original Tony-winning performance to the film version.
The video quality here is poor, and there's a slight, staticky-buzzing noise, but this is a joyful video. It's the final song of the show, “If He Walked Into My Life,” which composer Jerry Herman has said is his favorite song – and then it leads into the exuberant finale and title song to the wildly-enthusiastic audience.
By the way, there are few things I think are more fun in the the theater than a well-staged finale and curtain call, soaking up every nook of the bows. And this one does a very nice job of it....
