Mitzi Gaynor Razzle Dazzle

by Laurie Henzel

While some may be wasting precious tv time (and brain cells) watching Britney’s documentary tonite, I was thrilled to catch a show on a very different blonde entertainer, Miss Mitzi Gaynor in her interview special on PBS, called Razzle Dazzle: The Special Years. Perhaps I truly am a gay man trapped in a womans body, but for some reason, I just cant get enough of Mitzi and her outfits and dance moves. Most of the show was scenes from her 70’s variety show, Razzle Dazzle (filmed when she was in her early 40’s), she had a truly amazing physique but she’s just a juggernaut of go-go moves and Bob Mackie vegas glitz, it’s really fun. The PBS show is interspersed with live Mitzi (she looks fabulous btw) discussing her various roles like in South Pacific etc, but its the Razzle Dazzle that gets me. I guess variety shows (ala Sonny and Cher) are a thing of the past, I can’t think of anyone that could pull this off today, I dare you to watch this and not crack a smile.
