Kinda reiterating what I said in my own reply, but the problem was that Merman may have looked to be in her 40s, the character was meant to be 20!

The gusto and exuberance are undeniable and appropriate for the role and the song.

I can't begin to think that the Fields' would have agreed she gave "a definitive interpretation of the role". Of course, I never asked them about it.
