Actress Angela Lansbury as "Mame", 1966

Jack Mitchell photographed Angela Lansbury in his New York studio in 1966 when she was starring in the Broadway musical comedy "Mame". Everyone photographed Mame Dennis drinking and whooping it up, so Mitchell asked Lansbury to recreate the emotional moment in the musical where she sings "Did I give enough? Did I give too much?" but by facial expression alone. He had created a loop of the song ('If He Walked Into My Life') and played it as he photographed her. Afterwards, Lansbury thanked him for treating her like an actress.
