Should Your Fourth of July Skies Be Cloudy…

…may I suggest a film?
It’s one of my all time favorites.
Now, ‘it’s hot as hell in Phila-del-phi-a‘! ‘Someone oughta open up a window‘ and
for God’s sake John, sit down!’
You’ll be glad you did.

    Cool idea. I saw it about 30 years ago (school field trip) at the Ahmanson in LA.

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    You’re obnoxious and disliked, you know it’s so
    Everyone always sings that when I’m around…

  3. I love it. LOVE it. It is so clever, so compelling, so hysterical and so heart rending…you can try not miss a single word, but so much is going on you know you will. I never got to see the Broadway version, but the bulk of that cast actually made it to the movie (a rare and beautiful thing in itself) and I will eternally regret, by virtue of their luminous screen performances, that I didn’t throw Bingley in the car and drag him into the city for this one. (Thank God he was always my good natured cultural companion on these jaunts, as the bulk of my high school buddies were terrified of ‘the city’. Gomers.)

  4. I thought it was the ‘someone oughta open up a window…’ they sang.

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    Depends on what I ate for dinner, sis.

    I’m checking the TV listings. I love that movie, and it’s shameful — SHAMEFUL — that it’s so hard to find on the tube.
    I’ll have to buy it . . .

  7. I am heartened supremely that Ebola and I are not the only ones on earth who appreciate it!! Amazon has a good deal on the DVD, Shannon. My VHS copy is well worn and it’s time to upgrade. It’s one of the only two tapes I can have playing and still work, because of their operetta-like quality.
