Gypsy...Two Pretend, One Real

 Sandra Church, Ethel Merman and Jack Klugman 
in the original Broadway production.

 Faith Dane, Maria Karnilova and Chotzi Foley
as Electra, Mazeppa and Tessie Tura,
recording "You Gotta Get a Gimmick,"
WITH clothes.
 Natalie Wood, the movie's Louise/Gypsy.
Marni Nixon (as usual) provided vocal help here...

 Rosalind Russell, the movie's Rose 
(Ethel was NOT pleased).

 The real Gypsy...Rose Louise Hovick,
born in 1911.

And all grown up...
a full blown ecdysiast
(a hoity toity word for high class stripper)...
