Mitzi was very busy in the 1950’s,yet she only made three more films after her big success in SOUTH PACIFIC. I don’t know why her film career stopped. Musicals may have dried up but she was perfectly capable of doing other roles.

By the 1960s Mitzi’s career was in live performance and television. She took to the stage of the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas in 1961 and began touring in spectacular live shows.

And she had great success in her TV specials from 1967  to 1978.

Mitzi was still touring in 2013 at the age of 81.

She has her own web page at http://missmitzigaynor.com

  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Mitzi! I love Mitzi Gaynor. We used to watch her on television years ago – she always delivered a great show. SO talented and very underrated, I think. I always wondered why she didn’t have a bigger movie career. Or maybe she did and I just (somehow) missed it.
