Hold back, hold back
The most glittering of all our Patron Saints here at Dolores Delargo Towers blows out eighty-five candles today!
Miss Mitzi Gaynor (for it is she) has shimmied, shaken and high-kicked her way through myriad musicals, TV specials and award ceremonies in her long, long career - her screen legacy includes such classics as My Blue Heaven, There's No Business Like Show Business, Anything Goes, Les Girls and, of course, South Pacific, and she still makes occasional stage appearances to this day!
However, it is for this moment of choreographed uber-campery - possibly one of my favourite clips, ever - that we celebrate her the most...
Here's the timeless Let Go!
Many happy returns, Francesca Marlene de Czanyi von Gerber, aka Mitzi Gaynor (born 4th September 1931)
