With CGI, perhaps we could have Merman's voice for any and all future Gypsy's.
And why stop there?
Imagine that voice coming out of Russell Crowe as Javert.

Gypsy is on NOW on TCM!
RR/EM played Mama Rose, not "Gypsy Rose".
I wish they'd reinstate Russell's unused vocals (with the requisite autotuning)
If you want to hear Rosalind Russell's actual vocals,buy the remasterd movie soundtrack on CD.She's very-shaky and has a problem holding notes,but she has charisma,and she sang "Together Whereever We Go"well.That film footage is on the rematered DVD along with the duet part of "You'll Never Get Away From Me". Now once we can superimpose faces as well as voices,maybe we can put Sean Connery's imaqe over George Lazenby's in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service",eventhough I liked Lazenby,and I loved Topol but I'd love to see Zero Mostel put on the movie "Fiddler On The Roof".Ditto Carol Channing for Barbra Streisand although I loved Babs in "Hello Dolly" it would make sweet Carol so happy,and maybe Angela Landsbury for Lucille Ball in "Mame",although I loved Lucy.I don't need Julie Andrews in "My Fair Lady" though because Audrey Hepburn had more sex-appeal but if Julie fans insist,okay.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
