Q Wasn’t Natalie Wood’s voice dubbed for Gypsy? A Let her en­ter­tain you! Although Marni Nixon had dubbed her in West Side Story, it was all Natalie when the film of the Broad­way mu­si­cal hit screens on Nov. 11, 1962. Q Is it true Li’l Ab­ner cre­ated Sadie Hawkins Day? A Oh, happy day! On Nov. 15, 1937, car­toon­ist Al Capp in­tro­duced the chase in his strip so as “the home­li­est gal in all them hills” could get hitched. The con­cept quickly left the con­fines of Dog­patch as dances popped up the next year. Yet even with help from Stu­pe­fyin’ Jones (Julie New­mar), Daisy Mae couldn’t catch Ab­ner in the Broad­way mu­si­cal or ’59 film.
