Showpeople (4): "first you're another sloe-eyed vamp" ...

Just a trio of those troupers who belted out Sondheim's "I'm Still Here" from "Follies":

Eartha does it her way - I saw Eartha Kitt in a 90's London revivial, she stopped the show every night !

Much as I love Dolores Gray (and I do, check my label on her) she is frankly too old and matronly here, from a Royal Variety Show...

Very surprised by Yvonne De Carlo - the original Carlotta - she is sensational here on a David Frost show - she plays it perfectly and gets the dynamics of the lyrics - wish I had seen her then !

The clips (and probably other versions) are on YouTube.
