I taped this special, since I had to work the night it aired, and watched it about three times before finally taping over it. Of all the reviews I read of this (and that was quite a few), not one of them mentioned my favorite part. Most people wouldn't notice it, I realize, but I think it deserves some mention. While Robert Goulet was serenading Julie Andrews with a song from Camelot, in which they costared, Julie's husband, Blake Edwards, started crying. Notice I don't say Julie herself started crying. She didn't cry until the end of her portion of the tribute. Blake, however, was in tears before Goulet's song was even half-over. Hollywood marriages have always been something of a joke, but to see a display of affection like that from a Hollywood couple says something about the depth of their love. May everyone, famous or not, find love like that.
