In the land of the dreamy scenes

Today's birthay girl Miss Juliet Prowse, the exotic Anglo-Indian beauty who first graced the screens in Can-Can and went on to appear in many roles and performances alongside the likes of Frank Sinatra (to whom she was briefly engaged), Elvis, Sal Mineo, Dean Martin, Carol Burnett and Elaine Stritch as well as her own Vegas shows, died far too young at 59.

Had she lived, she would no doubt have taken her place alongside other va-va-voom entertainers as Ann-Margret and Shirley MacLaine in showbiz history. We love her!

Let's celebrate the lady in her prime - in a set-piece routine that would be very much at home on one of our "Tacky Music Mondays" here at Dolores Delargo Towers. Here's the leggy lady herself in all her glory, with Way Down Yonder In New Orleans:
