YouTube Treasure: Mitzi Does "Georgy Girl"
As the Oscars approach, the time is ripe for some archival Best Song footage--like Mitzi Gaynor bouncing through the nominated tune "Georgy Girl," a sweet, rollicking ditty about a plump but lovable British bird.
On the 1967 awards telecast, Mitzi, backed by the inevitable georgy men, starts cute and bubbly, then rips it all off and turns this into another potentially whorey Vegas showgirl routine. And I love every bugle bead!
