“Hard-Hearted Hannah”

My day is filled with adult-like responsibilities (as in getting work) and taking my father to see The Sound of Music at the multiplex this evening. In the meanwhile, here is the inimitable Tony-winning Dorothy Loudon singing the Tin Pan Alley classic “Hard Hearted Hannah (The Vamp of Savannah)” with music by Milton Ager and lyrics from Jack Yellen, Bob Bigelow and Charles Bates on The Merv Griffin Show. Sondheim fans will recognize this from his list of “Songs I Wished I’d Written (At Least in Part)”. The sound cuts out for a bit in the middle, but it does return and Loudon gives the number her requisite big finish.
