Storyline

If Carol Channing didn't exist, no one could have made her up. One in a billion, Carol , at 89, remains an unstoppable, megawatt dynamo. Broadway diva extraordinaire is just the icing. Carol Channing hovered at the pinnacle of the entertainment world from the late-1950's through the 1960's and beyond, living life sensationally large. As Carol has observed, '...if you're lucky enough to have two hit shows, the world passes through your dressing room'. At 89, she remains irrepressible. Written by Anonymous

Wonderful
27 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is an incisive portrait of a certifiable living legend, the great Carol Channing who is, at age 90, a sharp, funny, lovable person. Her wit shines through in many archival and contemporary interviews. She had me laughing so hard. It is truly heartwarming to realize that after so many years of what appears to be a bad marriage, that this lovely lady was reunited with her true love. He seems devoted to her and they fit together in their interviews as only true loves do. I have never had the privilege of seeing Miss Channing in person, which is one of my true regrets, but her winning persona comes across in this show bigtime. There are so few of these legends left in our transitory world. Like Betty White, here is one to cherish.
