VINCE COLLETTA, THE MUSICAL

ITEM! And speaking of musicals, wouldn't the Merry Marvel Bullpen of the 60s make a great cast of crooning comic characters for stage or screen? If only Yours Truly had the time to write every great idea that flowed from my Gershwin-like ganglia! Maybe if I get the ball rolling, other talents approaching mine (admittedly, few though they may be in number) can pick up the call and run with it. Here's a little ditty I wrote about our favorite Sicilian Scribbler, the late-great Vince Colletta. The lyrics should be sung to the tune of "The Oldest Established" from Guys & Dolls. Enjoy!

Excelsior!
