A mais envergonhada



Vocês não estavam achando que, além da magnífica estampa, Rita ainda cantava, né?
A voz ali era da Anita Ellis, nascida no Canadá em 1920 e criada na Califórnia. Aos 17, ganhou bolsa para estudar ópera em Cincinnati, pagando as contas cantando em bandas locais. Só então descobriu que tinha o que gringos chamam de stage fright, o pânico de estar no palco, que, em alguns casos, literalmente paralisa o artista. No Brasil, os músicos dizem que "o cara amarelou".
Convidada para dublar atrizes que não sabiam cantar, Anita estreou logo com a canção inframencionada pelo Zeno e psicanalisada pela Captcha. Fez carreira no ramo e nunca perdeu o medo do palco. Se vocês têm interesse na vida e carreira da moça, há um belo ensaio sobre ela, do Whitney Balliett no seu livro "American Singers".
O disco aí embaixo foi tirado da gravação de um programa de televisão para a PBS em 1979, só Anita acompanhada por um craque no assunto, o pianista Ellis Larkins.

PUT THE BLAME ON MAME
(Allan Roberts / Doris Fisher)

When Mrs. O'Leary's cow kicked the lantern
In Chicago town
They say that started the fire
That burned Chicago down
That's the story that went around
But here's the real low-down
Put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame
Mame kissed a buyer from out of town
That kiss burned Chicago down
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame

When they had the earthquake in San Francisco
Back in nineteen-six
They said that ol' Mother Nature
Was up to her old tricks
That's the story that went around
But here's the real low-down
Put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame
One night she started to shimmy-shake
That brought on the Frisco quakes
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame

When Mrs. O'Leary's cow
Kicked the lantern in Chicago town
They say that started the fire
That burned Chicago down
That's the story that went around
But here's the real low-down
Put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame
Mame kissed a buyer from out of town
That kiss burned Chicago down
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame

Remember the blizzard, back in Manhattan
In eighteen-eighty-six
They say that traffic was tied up
And folks were in a fix
That's the story that went around
But here's the real low-down
Put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame
Mame gave a chump such an ice-cold "No"
For seven days they shovelled snow
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame

When they had the earthquake in San Francisco
Back in nineteen-six
They said that Mother Nature
Was up to her old tricks
That's the story that went around
But here's the real low-down
Put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame
One night she started to shim and shake
That brought on the Frisco quake
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame

They once had a shootin' up in the Klondike
When they got Dan McGrew
Folks were putting the blame on
The lady known as Lou
That's the story that went around
But here's the real low-down
Put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame
Mame did a dance called the hoochy-coo
That's the thing that slew McGrew
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame

Mata a cobra e mostra a Gilda. Quer dizer, a Anita. E chamar a Hayworth de "Ritalina", olha, acho que até o Orson Welles - ou principalmente ele - assinaria embaixo.
