good gaudy allmighty!
22 November 2001 | by andrew_caldwellSee all my reviews

For any student of surrealism and/or pop culture, this 1970 curiosity is a must-see. See Raquel jam onstage with Tom Jones. See Raquel tour a Mexican orphanage with John Wayne. See Raquel joke/sing "Rocky Raccoon" with Bob Hope. All this when she's not crooning top 40 hits of the era (songs from HAIR, Midnight Cowboy, The Graduate, etc.) while traipsing around exotic locales (Paris, London, the pyramids of Mexico!) in a couple dozen gloriously gaudy Bob Mackie costumes that look like they were designed by the "I Dream of Jeannie" crew on LSD. A prime example of the "star-vehicle" tv-special centering on the acting, singing, dancing, dressing, clowning talents of Raquel. Any fan of Ms. Welch must catch this rare showcase. Anyone looking for a camp extravaganza won't be disappointed.
