“Who wants respect from a ten-year-old kid?!?”
There’s a special place in movie heaven for Paul Lynde.
A master of snarky sarcasm and biting wit, especially in his role as the center of attention on The Hollywood Squares, he also had a lovely singing voice.
That was showcased best in this bouncy musical.
Stealing the show right out from under the feet of big-timers Ann-Margret, Janet Leigh, and Dick Van Dyke, he wails about the pitfalls of being a parent.
“Kids” is just one song in a film packed with 15 tuneful concoctions, but it, like Lynde, is a show-stopper.
