Hot Clip of the Day: Ethel Merman Dusts Off the Old Rifle...

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 Can't Get a Man with a Gun" (Ethel Merman, Annie Get Your Gun)


Ulterior Motives: The Merm opened Irving Berlin's classic musical about Annie Oakley at the Imperial Theatre on this date in 1946.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: 29 years after the musical opened on Broadway, Ethel dusted off her old rifle for a concert at Nashville's Opryland, and the highlight comes at 3:05 for everything about "the gals with umbrellas are always out with fellers."
