Friday Night Movie: Gypsy

Oh for the days of vaudeville...

Based on the shadows-to-spotlight story of famed burlesque artist Gypsy Rose Lee, Gypsy started life as a Broadway musical with book by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Ethel Merman originated the role of Mama Rose, the original stage mother. In revivals, the role of Rose has been brought to life by actresses that are not shrinking violets--Tyne Daly, Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters and Patti Lupone. It takes a big voice to close the first act with "Everything's Coming Up Roses."

The classic 1962 film version had an equally big voice as Rose, Rosalind Russell. Natalie Wood stars as sweet Louise, who grows from one of the "boys" in her sister's vaudeville act to headliner on the world burlesque stage. Directed by Mervyn Leroy, the film asks only that you "Let Me Entertain You."
