Mike Nichols & Elaine May in "The Red Mill" - Dupont Show of the Month 1958 .
17 May 1999 | by (Tarzana, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

Watching and listening to Mike and Elaine together in the back -seat of a Rolls Royce limmo, singing Victor Herbert's "Why do I love You? Why do you Love me?" to each other, remains for their "humble" Casting Director/Associate Producer a vivid career-highlight memory all these forty one years later. Memory loses a lot in time, yet I find great, easy pleasure in recalling/ replaying their performance in this mind and heart.
