Diller Performs At The Poetry Center

American commedienne and actress Phyllis Diller impersonates poet Emily Dickinson during a performance at the Poetry Center, San Francisco, California, March 1957.

While many of the younger folks may have no idea who Phyllis Diller is, I remember her as a crazy comedian I watched on TV in the 70's with wild hair and a loud voice.

Anyway, I had no idea she played Emily Dickinson in 1957 in San Fran.
Though this photo makes her look a little like an angry Dickinson, but good enough!
