Today’s Holiday Tune: Lucille Ball’s version of “We Need A Little Christmas” from the film “Mame”

Lucille Ball - MameOkay, we all know that Angela Lansbury should have starred in the 1974 movie version of the musical Mame for which she won a Tony Award on Broadway.
But the role went to our beloved Lucille Ball who by then was in her early 60s and never had much of a singing voice (although it was not as bad as Lucy Ricardo’s!).
Lucy gave it her best shot and had her moments in the film – especially in her scenes with Bea Arthur who reprised her role of Vera Charles from the Broadway show.
So here is Miss Ball singing one of the movie’s more touching musical numbers: We Need a Little Christmas.
Enjoy!

One Remark

  1. The original Mame, Rosalind Russell, was of the opinion that much younger Cher should have been in the remake.
