  1. Ann Miller was a star right up until the end! I saw her as Carlotta in the 1998 revival of Stephen Sondheim's Follies at the Paper Mill Playhouse in NJ. She came down the staircase with grace and mesmerized the audience with a singing solo entitled "I'm Still Here." Everytime I play the cast recording I remember that great production that was full of stars that we'll not see the likes of again. [In adddition to Ann Miller, the musical boasted Kaye Ballard, Liliane Montevecci, Phyllis Newman, Tony Roberts]

  2. Dawn , The description of Top Secret is not really what the films about, but it's as good as any. Like I said it's important to "Go in Cold" so as not spoil the fun.

  3. Gilby, What an experience of a life time.. I would have loved to have seen her perform!
    Thank you for sharing...

    Paul, I'm keepimg my fingers crossed that nothing happens to prevent me from watching, Top Secret. I'm curious to find out what the deal is with the cows.

  4. Dawn, you would not believe me if I told you (and I won't) . You just have to see the film.
