Escenas Memorables. Put The Blame On Mame, Rita Hayworth.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
“Put the Blame on Mame” is a song by Allan Roberts and Doris Fisher, originally made for the film Gilda in 1946 – where it was sung by the title character, played by Rita Hayworth and with the singing voice actually that of Anita Kert Ellis.In keeping with the film character Gilda being “the ultimate femme fatale”, the song sung by her at two scenes facetiously credits the amorous activities of a woman named “Mame” (the name evidently chosen to rhyme with “blame”) as the true cause of three well-known cataclysmic events in American history: The Great Chicago Fire of 1871, Great Blizzard of 1888 in New York City and the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
