I was watching this video the other day

where Dita von Teese tries on a vintage dress worn by Gypsy Rose Lee, a burlesque dancer from the 50’s.

Gypsy wore it in the movie “Screaming Mimi” in 1958 , where she sings “Put the blame on Mame”.

I immediately recalled another movie scene

Rita Hayworth singing the same song in “Gilda” a noir movie from 1946.

The song was written for Gilda by  Allan Roberts and Doris Fisher.
