Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"You're Just in Love" (Elaine Stritch & Russell Nype, Call Me Madam)
Ulterior Motives: The Irving Berlin musical opened on this date in 1950 at Broadway's Imperial Theatre and won a 1951 Tony Award for its leading lady, Ethel Merman, as well as Score & Featured Actor for Russell Nype.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: This video featured Merman's standby, Elaine Stritch, in the role of Mrs. Sally Adams opposite Tony winner Russell Nype. Now if you're here for Stritchy, she starts at :57 in, she's giving you life at 2:07, but it's all about the encore at 2:40—in fact, you could just watch that and be fine.
