As we head off into the first weekend of spring, let’s take another look at Harmon Jones‘ Bloodhounds of Broadway (1952). Emily Ann Stackerlee (Mitzi Gaynor) has dissuaded her erstwhile fiance Crockett Pace from shooting Numbers Foster (Scott Brady) and Poorly Sammis (Wally Vernon), but Pace remains skeptical.
Ms. Gaynor is without question one of the greatest stars of musical theater who ever lived. She’s been tearing up the Broadway stage almost her entire life. She only appeared in films for thirteen years; television and the stage seem to be her preferred venues. At 82, she’s still packin’ ’em in at her one-woman show, Razzle Dazzle! My Life Behind the Sequins. Go get ’em Mitzi!
