If you worship Carol Channing the way I do, you may wanna check out this article by the delightful John Sanchez which starts with:
If Carol Channing didn't exist, nobody would have made her up. This singing, dancing, large-mouthed dynamo is one of America's biggest stars and--even though she is quite talented--it's hard to say exactly what the appeal is. Her face and voice are instantly recognized from Maine to Alaska, yet in her long career, she has starred in only five movies and one of them--the gangsters 'n' LSD comedy "Skidoo"--is sometimes cited as the worst movie ever made! Her biggest triumphs have been on the Broadway stage, a venue where only a fraction of her legion of admirers could possibly have caught her act. What makes her so unforgettable? It's simple! Even though she can give a heart-stopping show that ranks with the best of 'em, she goes that extra mile by making it look not only easy, but downright retarded!
