As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
This needs saying.
I dislike Harlem. I dislike Jazz. I dislike the Cotton Club. I dislike Whites of all sorts slumming with Niggers.
I do like the lyrics of Cab Collaway for Minnie the Moocher, who was a red hot hoochie coocher, who went to Chinatown and was taught to kick the gong around.
I was watching Marilyn Monroe on the Jack Benny Show. Ms. Monroe was treated badly, but perfected the air head as an acting talent. She really was a quite bright woman. Compared to the females in the industry today, Marilyn was Albert Einstein.Folks, here's a story 'bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a red-hot hoochie-coocher
She was the roughest, toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whaleHi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi (hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi)
He-e-e-e-e-e-e-y (he-e-e-e-e-e-e-y)She messed around with a bloke named Smokey
She loved him though was cokey
He took her down to Chinatown
And he showed her how to kick the gong aroundHi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi (hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi)
This all started with watching Raquel Welch on Bandolero. She came up the hard way too, on the assassination of Ms. Monroe, which was difficult in being taken serious in being beautiful, built and talented. She did this all without being naked or selling out. She worked hard and set a standard which lesser females like Cher, Madonna and whatever crotch tease sold themselves and all femininity for.
The third star in this is Ann Margaret. Ms. Margaret was someone who was able to hold her own against mega stars like John Wayne. To be a star with class, outshining others, and keeping a place in people's hearts, both men and women, is something outstanding.
These three women held an area of stardom, where they would not be associated with Olivia DeHaviland, Maureen O'Hara or Audrey Hepburn, but in that those three great female leads could not have accomplished in overt sex appeal, which these women were blessed with in attributes.
There are others who were the stereotype in Jayne Mansfield, Victoria Principle, and Lindsey Lohan who failed at being what these other stars excelled at.
The real hootchie coochers.
