I'll Plant My Own Tree

My wife was watching "Valley of the Dolls" (1967) last night on Netflix streaming and started yelling "LOOK!  A MOBILE!!!!".

This is probably the best scene in the entire movie - watching Susan Hayward standing in the middle of a huge rotating plexiglass hanging mobile singing "I'll Plant My Own Tree" strangely captivated me like a car spinning out of control for two and a half minutes.

By the way, Judy Garland was originally slated to play this part but was fired when she came to work drunk.
