Happy 67th birthday to an entertainer who has spent decades proving that she's not only immensely talented, but resilient, refreshingly weird, and one of a kind. Seriously, who compares to Liza Minnelli? Her career has a hit a couple of bumps, but those are interspersed nicely between her (ahem) four Tony wins, thrillingly strange film choices, bizarre marriages, and eleven album releases. Today, on Liza-with-a-z's 67th birthday, enjoy a smattering of clips featuring her talents, outrageousness, and some of the most definitive chutzpah of our time.

(I've arranged them chronologically for your convenience.)

1. Let her enchant you with that mother of hers.

2. Watch as the What's My Line? panel takes approximately 15 seconds to identify that voice.

3. Her first amazing acting scene: the phone call from her first Oscar-nominated role in 1969's The Sterile Cuckoo

4. My favorite musical sequence (from any movie) ever: Cabaret's "Money." Liza and Joel Work for those Oscars. »
