Hot Clip of the Day: Original Follies Star Yvonne De Carlo & Her "I'm Still Here"
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.
"I'm Still Here" (Yvonne De Carlo, Follies)
Ulterior Motives: The original Hal Prince production of Sondheim and James Goldman's Follies opened at the Winter Garden Theatre on this date in 1971.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Here is the musical's original Carlotta Campion, Yvonne De Carlo (AKA Lily Munster from TV's The Munsters), giving a performance for the YouTube history books (AKA my favorites playlist). Two handography moments that are just everything in this clip: "first you're another slow-eyed vamp" (2:56) then "what a looker you were" (3:30)—also be sure to stick around for the magic of 3:44.
