PS. Bonus points if you read that last title and immediately thought of this scene (it started looping in my head and I had to find the footage, pronto!):

from Otto Preminger's Skidoo, one of my favorite movies ever made, of all time, EVER. It also stars Groucho Marx, Jackie Gleason, Cesar Romero, Frankie Avalon... no big deal, right? How about 60s supermodel and Rolling Stones pal Donyale Luna? John Phillip Law aka Pygar from Barbarella? Oh, and, costumes by Rudi Gernreich? Soundtrack by Harry Nilsson? If you haven't already seen it, do it now!

I seriously love, love, LOVE Carol Channing, and have probably never been more awestruck and starstruck than seeing her perform Razzle Dazzle (with fireworks!) a few years ago at the Hollywood Bowl!

Here's another classic Carol Channing moment, from Thoroughly Modern Millie:

  1. During my last semester of college last year, Carol Channing came and gave a little talk to our theatre department... it was so surreal sitting a few feet away from her while she talked about her life. Crazy experience!
