Could it be "My Best Girl" Neil? I've always thought was just about the best she sounded on the entire Mame soundtrack, at least the first couple of lines... she doesn't quite maintain it through the entire song but sounds great while it lasts: "You're my best beau, you're handsome and brave and strong, there's nothing we two can't face......" :fabrary:

you are correct!  Particularly the note she hits for "strong" and you're also right: she doesn't really sustain that level of quality but is still pretty good.

When the Merv Griffin Show had its Lucy night we've all seen now, it ran in October of 1973, 6 months before Mame's premiere,.  The "color answer print" (as Gary pointed out) clips they showed included a little It's Today dance, some of the Mame number, but the only singing of Lucy's we heard were the lines you quoted---which gave us the impression she was going to sound better over all than she did.

I am really hoping they show that Merv Griffin Show again as Merv is now on every Monday night on GetTV.

Thought so. It's also my favorite scene in the entire film.  There's something particularly poignant about it and her opening lines of the song really reflect that.  While I'm no big fan of that kid, he held his own with her in this scene and I think a few more scenes like it would have done the finished product a world of good!  :lucyeww:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


CELEBRATE INIMITABLE COMEDY LEGEND TIM
CONWAY WITH A BRAND-NEW DVD COLLECTION
FEATURING NEVER-BEFORE-RELEASED
EPISODES OF THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW

THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW:
THE BEST OF TIM CONWAY

April 4, 2017

The Single DVD ($12.95 srp) Includes Four
Complete Episodes - Three Not Seen in More
Than 40 Years! - Featuring Conway's Most
Indelible Characters Such as "Oldest Man," "Mr.
Tudball," "The Virgin Prince," and "The Dentist"



During his frequent guest appearances on The Carol Burnett Show, Tim Conway, who had originally gotten his start on McHale's Navy, was a one-man wrecking crew capable of leveling the audience and cast members alike with the slightest gesture. With an unparalleled gift for improvisation and physical comedy, Conway became a permanent part of the cast in 1975, and would go on to create a gallery of oddball characters that blossomed in their own bumbling ineptitude, from the "Oldest Man" to the irascible boss, Mr. Tudball. THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE BEST OF TIM CONWAY celebrates this inimitable and legendary comic with four complete episodes - three not seen in more than 40 years - featuring some of his most unforgettable characters and moments.

In Episode 312 (airdate: December 8, 1969), Conway's "Oldest Man" gives himself a slo-mo oil change playing the default head of a racetrack pit crew; and, as "The Virgin Prince," he's a "swishbuckling" tour de farce with an appetite for flies and destruction. Episode 423 (airdate: April 19, 1971) features Conway as "The Lone Ranger" and acting like man's best friend in "Dog's Life" (blooper included!) Episode 513 (airdate: December 1, 1971) includes the all-time Conway/Korman classic sketch, "The Dentist," which remains the stuff of TV legend and one of the all-time-great moments of physical comedy. And, in Episode 0120 (airdate: February 26, 1978), Conway stars as Mr. Tudball, well-known for his strange accent and regimented work style, who takes leave of his senses while showing compassion for his dimwitted secretary, Mrs. Wiggins (Burnett).

Judging by the cover design, I'd say they are going to do a release for each cast member. A very clever idea.

You're right, though, Lyle's would be a tough one, as he was primarily the straight man.

That's okay...since most of his scenes were striking in one way or the other: natty in a tuxedo or stripped down and baring a buff bod! :blink:

I kinda like this concept but a little surprised the "theme" needed only one disc! But I suppose that's because they went with selected, full episodes rather than selected sketches and whatnot.... Might have been nice if they'd added another disc with clips, bloopers (as a result of Tim's shenanigans, e.g. the infamous "elephant story" from the "Family" sketch with Vicki's classic payoff, and other selected highlights of Tim's many hilarious, often unscripted contributions!

 

Since they're going this theme route (reminds me of those costly Columbia House collections --that I STILL have!!), be nice if they ultimately produced one for at least Harvey's and Vicki's "Best of" moments and somewhere along the line, a definitive collection of all the "Family" sketches -- would LOVE that! :peachonthebeach:

So it's getting a little hard to keep track: how many actual full-length episodes are now available, and how many "incarnations" of these various releases do you have to acquire to get ALL of them?? I confuse! :blink:

 

Frankly, and I'm probably in the minority here as usual, but now that the first 5 previously Brownstein-clogged seasons are available, I'd much prefer that instead of these subjective "Best of" collections (which I detest in any form!! You're "best" is not necessarily MY "best" (favorites)!!), that they'd have gone back literally to the beginning and released -- in two or three volumes, if necessary -- ALL the shows, in broadcast order, and be done with it! 

 

It may have taken longer in the long run, such as back in the day when Columbia House originally released every ILL episode -- by theme yet!! -- which took SIXTY (yes, 60!! :blink: ) VHS tapes but at least ultimately they were all OUT!

I'm pretty sure the seasons 1-5 set is also a best of. The original press release seemed to hint at a complete release but it ultimately wasn't. No complete seasons have ever been released to date, only highlights.
