    Wow! Good stuff Terry! I thoroughly enjoyed the journey and I think everyone was brilliant in their portrayals of these icons. I always thought Lindsay Lohan would play a good Raquel Welch, but seeing her and Liz side by side, she just might do alright as Liz. I mean if she can channel Liz’ spirit, I think capturing her complete essence will become second nature.

    And you’re right, Jamie Foxx as Ray is the epitome of all transformations of character thus far. He was Ray and I say if you’re gonna do it dammit, that’s how it should be done!
