"luck be a lady tonight"

Carol said...

The Musical is Guys and Dolls - I think the Song is Luck me a Lady.

Jeri said...

I know Frank Sinatra is famous for singing it

Jeri said...

KA-CHOW!!!! I got one~! my life day is complete!

Mom C said...

Charlotte was in CHS's production.

Carol said...

Brando sings it in the movie version - It is when they are in the sewer of all places! That is some dedication to gambling.

Carol said...

Frank Sinatra was in the movie - but this wan't his song. He played good old Nathan Detroit to Vivian Blain's Miss Adelaide.

Brando's Sky Masterson was a wonderful contrast to Jean Simmon's Sergeant Sarah Brown. Just mentioning her makes me think of Stubby Kaye singing Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat. Good musical!!

Mom C said...

UFO put it on too. Not my favorite musical I mean, take a missionary to Havana and seduce her. And I never really felt Sky was truly converted. But the betting songs are fun and the end where all the gamblers get religion can be hilarious.

Charlotte said...

Jeri: 2 points for the song. Nice work! 1 point for other trivia

Carol: 2 points for the musical. 1 point for other trivia.

Mom: 1 point for remembering my moment of glory, 1 point for other trivia.

Charlotte said...

Jeri--I gave you another point when I was updating the totals for using Ka-CHOW! in your post. I just couldn't resist.

Harmony said...

Shawn Hunt was in this at CHS too, wasn't he?

Harmony said...

Way to go Jeri!!!

Jeri said...

well - it is the "lightning" round after all. (but that is just a coincidence... I just love saying Ka-Chow... so I find all sorts of appropriate places to plug it into my conversations.

Charlotte said...

@ Harmony--yup, he was Nathan Detroit. Brett Christiansen was Sky Masterson.

I just made a bunch of comments, but none of them showed up. I think there was a problem with my login--not trying to whine, well maybe a little. I will try to recreate later, but my lunchhour is now mostly shot

deutschlehrer said...

All I remember from this one is Jennifer Johnson's bathtub scene, singing in a towel. Why is that?

deutschlehrer said...

Frank Sinatra was the Chairman of the board for the original Rat pack. The most famous movie featuring the entire rat pack was Ocean's eleven. This movie was remade by a new ratpack group including George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

Brad Pitt later starred in Inglorious Basterds (a film my students say I should see--but I haven't because of the title--points for having morals?) In this film, Pitt and his gang set out to assassinate Adolf Hitler-the biggest Nazi of them all.

deutschlehrer said...

The Rat Pack was further ripped off in the eighties by the "Brat Pack" of Breakfast club fame. None of them are German, but I am pretty sure most of them, including Molly Ringwald, were in Rehab at one point or another

deutschlehrer said...

Sammy Davis Jr. a member of the ratpack was also Jewish--although probably a convert. If you will remember, Jews have this problem with the Nazis. . . .

Charlotte said...

Jeff: a sympathy whim point for your pain. I know that feeling.

a point for the rat pack trivia. Another point for tying them all to rehab, germans, jews, and nazies.

a point for the jennifer johnson comment, 'cuz I know you meant for it to be on the west side story post, but you're in a hurry.

Total points: 4

Sammy Davis Jr had a glass eye. It was weird, you could really tell. He had one of the first famous multi racial marriages, Britt Elkand or something. It caused an uproar, almost as much as his being jewish.
In Stake conference Pres. Sorensen talked about the world's heightened awareness of Mormons for good or bad. He mentioned the latest scandal of someone taking jewish names to the temple again and the uncomfortable position it put the leadership in. Then he ended with "no matter how many times you baptise Anne Frank, only the 1st one is good."
