"Mame" (1974) - Jerry Herman

Okay, so we all know that Lucille Ball as "Mame" was panned by critics left and right. We all know that she was too old for the role, that she couldn't sing very well, and so on and so forth. But darn it, I always thought that the film was very entertaining (funny, with great songs) and that Lucille Ball gave a great performance. And I listen to it still too! Jerry Herman is one of the reasons why. His songs, though arranged much differently than the Broadway score, still shine through Ball's low voice. Robert Preston is in fine form, singing "Loving You" a song written especially for the movie.
