Phyllis Newman

  1. Marianne McAndrew, Hello Dolly, 1968.   Newman and Ann-Margret tested as Irene Molloy – finally sung on the soundtrack by Gilda Maiken and Melissa Stafford. Like Dolly, herself, Carol Channihg, Newman had beaten Streisand to a Broadway Tony award in 1962.  Newman’s husband, songwriter Adolph Green,  admitted he’d voted for La Barb!
