Speaking of Susan Hayward

No, today isn't her birthday. But it's the birthday of Dory Previn, who turns 84. How are the two related? Previn wrote lyrics in several movies in the 1950s and 1960s, most notably Valley of the Dolls, in which Hayward sings the dreadful "I'll Plant My Own Tree", standing in front of a hideous mobile. Unsurprisingly, that scene has made it's way to YouTube.
