Did You Know?


Born June 11, 1921, Tony Charmoli is an American dancer, theater and television choreographer, and a theater and television director. He began dancing on Broadway in such shows as "Make Mine Manhattan" but soon began choreographing for television with "Stop the Music" in 1949. Charmoli then choreographed dance sequences for the popular television music variety series "Your Hit Parade," winning his first Emmy Award in 1955. He went on to direct and choreograph for some of the biggest stars including Dinah Shore, Lily Tomlin, Danny Kaye, Julie Andrews, Cyd Charisse, Shirley MacLaine, Mitzi Gaynor, and others. On Broadway, Tony choreographed "Ankles Aweigh" (1955) and "Woman of the Year" (1981) with Lauren Bacall. During the 1970 decade, Charmoli focused his talents on directing for television, where he has directed such programs as the famous 1977 production of "The Nutcracker starring Mikhail Baryshnikov," which the television special was nominated for two Television EMMY's (neither nomination was for Charmoli, however). He directed and choreographed nearly all of Mitzi Gaynor's television specials in the 1970s as well as two of Shirley MacLaine's television network specials. He also worked many times with Sid and Marty Krofft, directing all seventeen series seasons of "Lidsville" and "The Bugaboos" respectively, as well as their special "Fol-de-Rol." He also directed the first two years of "Star Search" (1984-85), and several years of "Circus of the Stars," as well as "John Denver and the "Muppets: A Christmas Together" (1979), winning the Directors Guild Award. Charmoli also directed several Bob Hope specials, more than twenty televised beauty pageants, and the short-lived summer replacement series "The Keane Brothers Show" (1977). Charmoli is the recipient of three Emmy Awards, plus eight other Emmy nominations. See more »

Maybe not Carroll, but not altogether bad either.
19 July 1999 | by BobLibSee all my reviews

This may not be the "Alice" adaptation for Carroll purists (You'd have to go to the TV production of earlier this year for that), but it IS entertaining, and the cast DOES seem to be having a good time with it. Judi Rollin, just 20 at the time, is a terrific Alice, with a fine singing voice. One wonders why her career never went beyond the early '70's. Ricardo Montalban brings his usual effortless charm to the White King, and Nanette Fabray is hilarious as his scatterbrained Queen (Her number, "I Wasn't Meant to Be a Queen," is a howl). Agnes Moorehead is her usual imperious self as the Red Queen, and Jimmy Durante is, well, Jimmy Durante as Humpty Dumpty. Most delightfully over-the-top performance is Jack Palance, wearing this spangled Bob Mackie concoction, as the Jabberwock. Composer Moose Charlap was obviously hoping to repeat his "Peter Pan" success with his songs here, and, if they don't have the charm of the ones he wrote for Mary Martin, et. al., they come pretty close, as arranged by the great Don Costa. An Emmy nominee for Best Children's Special, and a Grammy-winner for Best Children's Album, this is an overlooked treasure. As I say, not for Carroll purists, but not bad!
