Musical Indulgence #4
And you thought Orson Welles' talents extended to the realms of acting directing, writing, raconteur-ring, doing magic tricks for Hollywood drunks at parties . . . and no further??
Then pay heed, ye fools and apostates; and listen up!
In this performance from Dean Martin's venerable NBC variety program of the 1960s, the aforementioned star of 'Crack in the Mirror' lends his vocal gifts to Stephen Sondheim's 'Everybody Ought to Have a Maid', with an assist from Martin, Jack Gilford and (as something of a visual aid) Pat Crowley, a full decade after her appearance in Tashlin's Hollywood or Bust and looking only slightly the worse for wear.
No longer does one have to imagine Welles' singing voice, sports fans; get a load of it here.
