The glorious Dorothy Lamour was probably best known for the multiple Road pictures that she did with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope (and for the vibrant wraparound dresses that she wore in them) in Hollywood’s golden age. There, and in other brightly filmed projects, she often burst into inventive song. Anthology buffs, though, probably know her best as the doomed Martha Spruce in the Old Chief Wooden’head episode of Creepshow 2. Thankfully, she had a much more colorful (and happier) role in Cecil DeMille’s grandiose The Greatest Show on Earth.
Lamour, who also appeared in the fun 1975 television terror Death at Love House also showed some new generation teens how to sell a production number in 1964’s Pajama Party.
Saying sarong…and until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
