The opening number starts with Liza sitting solo on a stage stool. Wearing a black sequined pant suit with Minnelli Red lining she starts to sing You want to sing it, you want to shout it, Happy Birthday. You can't imagine or be prepared for what happens next! The medley of all medley's. She does a semi costumed impersonation of Theda Barry on a train set travel-ling from NYC to California. Actors Tom Bosley, William Shattner, Gil Gerrard and Mike Connors provide the four big movie moguls all talking about how they are going to make it big! During this time Liza skirts in and about before donning Charlie Chaplin's Tramp-like attire. The costume, Velcro attached covers her sequined pants and top until various male dancers carefully remove it. The finally has Liza wearing a white stole atop her sequins, covered in perspiration, bringing the finally to a close. This is a great TV number. Now if only it were available on DVD!!!
