Anita Morris Remembered
I had a major league crush on Anita Morris since I saw her in the Magic Show. When my brothers and I saw her in the Magic Show on Broadway, midway through one of her numbers the power went out (New York City was having periodic brownouts at the time). Naturally the theatre's audio system died as well. The theatre went dark and quiet. I heard someone drawing in a deep breath, and then, a capella, Anita Morris continued singing. She exemplified true professionalism as well as talent (she was a legitimate triple threat) and unbridled sexiness.
This number has a wardrobe malfunction in it (You won't see anything you ought not to). But look how she handles it. The lady was a trouper.
