And the Wildcat vocals -- which I grew up hearing -- don't create that Mame sound. She sang with what can only be described as more confidence. To my ear, she sounds better than two famous Bacall notes "aliiiiiiive" and "womaaaaan," though admittedly the two actors had different personas/temperaments while singing. I always thought Bacall got a pass rather easily, and sounds good on only one number, "I Wrote the Book" in Woman of the Year. Coleman seemed more adept at writing for the Ball range than Strouse or Kander/Ebb did for Bacall, who would've been better off without that top of the voice screech. Just my two pennies.
