Blind Items Revealed #5 - Mr. X

April 16, 2021

I’ve always heard rumors about the authenticity of its existence, but it does indeed exist. It is s professionally shot color film of the star making Broadway musical (and eventually film) that would win its star, a permanent A++ list singer/actress/icon, several big awards. In order to prepare for the show’s West End opening after the star left the Broadway show to go overseas, the play was filmed in its entirety so sets, costumes and choreography could be duplicated. After the film was seen by the London producers it found its way into the hand of the show’s star who promptly shove it into a storage locker never to be seen again... that is until recently. While she was preparing for an auction of her personal memorabilia in the mid 2000s she found the film in that storage locker and had it screened. It was in bad shape and she personally paid to have it restored. Whether or not the general public will ever see it remains up for grabs.
