Though I heard about it, that's the most I've ever seen of "The Raoring 20's." Thanks for the link.

The other big movie from which I'll always remember her is "The Great Race."

From skylark's western youtube link, I'd guess that this is the inspiration for Lily von Schtupp in Blazing Saddles.

It would be a safe bet that Lily Von Schtupp was based primarily on Marlene Dietrich's performance in "Destry Rides Again."

Check out this clip and try NOT to think of Madeline Kahn: :wink:



Of course, that's not to take anything away from Dorothy Provine! :D

Did I miss this news? Hard to believe...

I loved Dorothy Provine as a 10-12 yr old child! I would spend weekends at my Grandmother's place in Torrance, CA and we'd play her records. One I always requested was Dorothy Provine and The Roaring Twenties. Can anyone guess that I'd love the song "Hard Hearted Hannah"? I remember SO many of the songs off that album! I've looked for it on eBay and CDUniverse.com, to no avail.

RIP, Dorothy. I have some great memories because of you.
It may not look like it, but at the molecular level I'm actually quite busy.
