Damn Yankees

Many in the audience didn’t know that “Whatever Lola Wants” and “Heart” were from musical Damn Yankees.  We also discovered that Tab Hunter didn’t make many memorable movies but Gwen Verdon was great, especially in the scene where she was dancing with Bob Fosse!

Digging a little further into the story I found that in the broadway production, the play ends with Joe hitting a home run to win the game just before his time runs out; whereas in the movie, he catches a fly ball to preserve the win.

See you all next week for “A League of Their Own” with Tom Hanks, Madonna and many more.
