Storyline

Before there was Dancing with the Stars, there was Mitzi Gaynor-television's original star dancer! From 1968 to 1978, Gaynor dazzled audiences with her annual, award-winning, network TV variety spectaculars - averaging over 30 million viewers each - showcasing the singing, dancing and comedic talents that made her a star in the theatre, film, television, nightclub and concert worlds. In honor of the 40th anniversary of Gaynor's first televised special (Mitzi, NBC, 1968) and the 50th anniversary of her signature, Golden Globe-nominated performance in the blockbuster 1958 film Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific. The ultimate collection of song and dance performances from Gaynor's classic network television specials - unseen for three decades - MITZI GAYNOR: RAZZLE DAZZLE! THE SPECIAL YEARS is a new documentary that celebrates a landmark career through new interviews with Mitzi and many others that worked with her. A reflective and entertaining glimpse into the television variety show... Written by Press Release

Mitzi does dazzle
13 May 2013 | by jjnxn-1See all my reviews

Entertaining and flashy which should come as no surprise: one because of the title and two for anyone who has ever seen Mitzi, the woman loves sparkles, rhinestones and bugle beads. The running time is a bit misleading for anyone who wants the full experience of the documentary. The initial part of the show is a documentary that does run about an hour with interviews and little snippets of shows however the extras run about the same length and that is where the real bulk of Mitzi performing is contained. Both parts are interesting and feed into each other, probably best to watch the doc first since it gives background on the numbers and the work that went into them so that it adds an extra dimension to the musical performances when you watch them. Mitzi comes across as a nice, high energy woman who loves what she does and there is a lot of talent on display.
