RAQUEL'S SCI FI DANCE
I believe this clip is from Miss Welch's 1970 TV big-budget TV special which never aired. It's magnificently horrifying. I will say that her dancing's very well-rehearsed, even though she's not the greatest dancer. With that face and body, all she needed to do was lie there! She sings, too, but that's in thre next clip down on youtube. Bob Mackie did costumes for some of these numbers. There's a zodiac-inspired # which cannot be believed! Raquel is truly one of the sultriest screen goddesesses of all time. Those flared nostrils just scream "I'm a bitch in heat and I want to pick up your scent!" Since I don't have her nostrils despite the black nose-shading which I borrowed from Dionne Warwick-impersonating drags, screaming "I'm a bitch in heat, etc." on street corners has never worked that well for me. Well, homeless guys like it. And a few homeless gals, too.
