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!

Mitzi Gaynor: Razzle, Dazzle-Will Put You in A Wonderful Frazzle ****
5 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent documentary on channel 13 dealing with the career of Mitzi Gaynor.

I remember her movies "There's No Business Like Show Business," as well as "The Joker is Wild," and of course "South Pacific." She really anticipated becoming a huge star after that one, but when that didn't happen, she turned her sights on television and was the television industry fortunate for that to happen.

With wonderful production numbers, a caring husband, who was her agent and producer as well, with vivid colors, and an array of talent, Ms. Gaynor has given us a lifetime of memories.

Her show with 100 guys was remarkable. The pacing of the show was terrific as everyone rightfully heaped praise on a remarkable performer.
