We love you, Miss Hannigan
Today is a glorious day, a fantabulous, splendiferous, extraordinary day. For today is the day that I have received my very own copy of the 1972 TV airing of Once Upon a Mattress, starring Carol Burnett as Princess Winnifred the Woebegone and co-starring Bernadette Peters as Lady Larken. (Furthermore, it does NOT feature Joe Bova as Prince Dauntless. Anyone who has heard the original cast recording will understand my immense relief.) |
You have no idea how hard the '72 version was to find. It would have been easier to get hold of the Holy Grail. This was one of those cases where eBay was just not sufficient.
This means that I now own the magic triad in its entirety: DVD copies of the '64 version, the '72 version, and the '05 version. (The first two feature Carol as Fred, and in the third she's Queen Aggravain.) I have this sense of awe.
No, but seriously. I PWN.
When will it be the end of the day so I can snuggle up in front of the TV with a λ, a kitty or two and a giant bowl of popcorn?
