Rule 5 Sunday: Gwen Verdon

I think my first encounter with the hit Broadway play Damn Yankees was on an easy listening station in DC which used to run a program called “Matinees At One” on Sunday afternoons. They’d play the soundtrack from a Broadway show, and in between songs the announcer would recount the plot of the play. Not having lost interest in baseball yet, I wound up checking out the book the play was based on, Douglas Wallop’s The Year The Yankees Lost The Pennant, and years later I actually got to see the movie. Boy howdy, they sure made the right call casting Gwen Verdon as the demonic temptress Lola for both the play and the movie. Yow.
Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse delendam.
