Personally, this is one of my favorites. A fantastic line-up with everyone's favorite, Whoopi as our host. From the first seconds the excitement builds as a full-blown college marching band comes down Vine and takes a raucous and rowdy left on Hollywood Boulevard aiming for their eventual target, the Pantages Theatre. And no side door cast and crew entrance here, this marching band goes through the front doors, into the lobby and down the main aisle blasting and blairin'. One of the all-time classic entries, from the opening shot it runs over 3 minutes! And this is before any musical acts, before the first words are spoken. Which, by the way, are hilarious. You'll understand, it's classic Whoopi. Anything, and I mean ANYTHING with both Gladys and Patti is okay in this household.
