The story of legendary performer Carol Channing's life is as colorful as the lipstick on her big, bright smile. In "Carol Channing: Larger Than Life," director Dori Berinstein ("ShowBusiness," "Gotta Dance"), with co-writer Adam Zucker, captures the magic and vivacity of the 90-year-old icon - both onstage and off...past and present. The film is both an intimate love story and a rarefied journey inside Broadway's most glamorous era. It is, above all, a look at an inspiring, incomparable and always entertaining American legend.
