Fifty years ago, Charlotte Rae made a sweet, silly and very funny recording called "Songs I Taught My Mother." The humor was witty -- impish and literate at the same time -- and the melodies tuneful, the work of such masters as Richard Rodgers, Cole Porter, Marc Blitzstein and Vernon Duke. The album, something of a legend among musical-theater buffs, has been out of print for decades.

Feel free to speak to Charlotte Rae when you see her on the street. "I get recognized a lot," the actress acknowledged, "and most of the time I love it. I enjoy all the privileges, the little kindnesses. When I come along, people's faces light up--or the garbage man waves and gives me a thumbs up. I have to be very careful or I'll get addicted to it." She smiled contentedly. "I just enjoy making people feel good. It's like you're using what you've got the way you're supposed to."

Hit it, girls! Charlotte Rae, Jane Kean and Marni Nixon just met the day before. But you wouldn't know it. The three have bonded like lifelong friends. The veterans of Broadway, nightclubs, television and movies are gabbing up a storm around a small table in an otherwise empty room at El Portal Theatre. It's their lunch break from rehearsals for the concert revival of the 1971 John Kander-Fred Ebb musical, "70, Girls, 70," opening Thursday at the North Hollywood theater.
