Carol Channing

Recommended Posts

The Tony and Golden Globe Winner and Oscar nominated actress singer and subject of regular impersonations by Ryan Stiles, Carol Channing turns 95 next January . She is best known for appearing in Hello Dolly!which earned her a Tony award. She also won a golden globe award and on Oscar nomination for Thoroughly Modern Millie.She is also a dancer and a stand up comedienne. So a pretty much all round performer who fits into several different threads. I definitely think she is a name that sounds very Death List worthy. Sir Creep also reckons she is on her way out so if he is right this thread gives him the perfect space to be as smug as he wishes to be :P

 

Looks and sounds weak in this commercial last year:

Channing in action as a very creepy Queen in Alice in Wonderland.

She looked reasonably lively and with it back in June

Yes she looks fairly good there .A bit too thin but apart from that not bad at all for 94.

Paula Dell, a pioneering stuntwoman and acrobat who was once shot out of a cannon in Thoroughly Modern Millie as Carol Channings stand-in, died Monday. She was 90 years old.

 

Can Carol be far behind?

[back to Dell: In her nearly 40-year Hollywood career, Dell served as stunt double for Julie Andrews in Star! (1968) and Jaclyn Smith on the original Charlies Angels series. Dell also did work for Camelot (1967), Blazing Saddles (1974), Airplane! (1980), Mystery Men (1999), and more.]

Goodbye, Dolly.

My mother hated her. I hope I had her in some pool just as a symbolic tip o the cap to me mum but I doubt it.

RIP, my first hit of 2019!

 

It's always sad when a truly entertaining person passes away, but she had a fullfilled life & reached a very high age.

:rip: RIP. My second for the year.

 

Had the curious belief that the committee had her on their list ..... but not so. That means 2-nil to me at present.

Hasn't started yet, so I think subs come in. She's died before the start.

 

Meantime, wonderful character actress, one of the jewels of Hollywood comedy. RIP Carol.
