Happy Thursday Guys and Dolls:
I said that I was not going to write until after Labor Day but I thought I would share an interesting fact with my readers today. I saw an article on the net that this week in 1959, Bobby Darin a hit record called “Mack the Knife.” The song was about a mass murderer and at the time the song was being banned by a radio station in NYC due to a series of teenage stabbings. Now Bobby Darin is one of my favorite singers so I decided to look up the lyrics to Mack the Knife and found this interesting lyric. Now it’s not the exact lyric but the names struck me.
“Jenny Diver, Sukey Tawdry, Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown”.
The name Lotte Lenya struck me, I just saw that name somewhere and it was going to drive me crazy if I did not find out who she was. Lotte Lenya was born Karoline Wilhelmine Charlotte Blaumauer in 1898. She was a singer, dancer and actress but us James Bond fans we know her and this is where I saw the name, Lotte played Rosa Klebb in “From Russia with Love.” The little old mean SPECTER agent with the poison dart in her shoe. The movie was just on TV Sunday and I watched it.
There you go Speakies an interesting fact from JoeyZ. Now to all my Speakies in the path of Hurricane Earl, take heed, shelter and stay loose. Hurricanes are not fun, we went through 3 in one year here. Be careful out there and to you all have a great Labor Day Weekend. See ya soon.
