HOPED TO CONTINUE GWEN'S STORY IN THIS POST

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Sorry, but you still have to wait for more about Gwen Verdon. I had a bad dental experience today.
Thanks for asking, but I don't want to talk about it.

I watched Damn Yankees. It's cute, but not the best musical I've ever seen. I imagine it's better onstage. "Whatever Lola Wants" is definitely the highlight.

To see Gwen at age 16, fast forward to 1:20 in the movie below. She's Ballerina Gwen.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. I have seen Damn Yankees both the film and in New York. I definitely prefer the stage.

  2. Gwen is so young and I had no idea she started with Ballet. As for the dentist...ughhh. I had a root canal done, now have some bump on my gum on the other tooth she was concerned about and need 2 other root canals but can’t do them as ran out of insurance for the year.

    1. Gwen learned a variety of dancing styles. She danced professionally from the time she was quite young, as Bob Fosse did. However, she did not dance in bars and burlesque houses.

    1. You are the one who deserves my sympathy. I've never had a root canal.

  5. Oh so sorry. I had a nightmare of a root canal a while back, so I know the feeling. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  6. Your dentist is either very boring or charges an outrageous price for the sedation.

    1. I'm usually not this interested in dance. The Fosse/Verdon series grabbed my interest.
