A haunting musical, lost in time.
5 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, it's not a classic piece of television history, but I have a real soft spot for "High Tor." This has a lot to do with the astonishing natural appeal and sincerity of a 21-year-old Julie Andrews - whom I had never seen before - and Bing Crosby's way of making being Bing Crosby look easy. The plot's jumbled and the technical values are undoubtedly primitive - but it was filmed live, and that's exciting all by itself in 2009. In addition, Maxwell Anderson may not have been the great playwright I thought him at 17, but he was a fine lyricist - he wrote "September Song," and the musical "Lost In The Stars" with Kurt Weill - and the songs he wrote for "High Tor" with Arthur Schwartz have stayed with me for more than fifty years. I've always wished that some company could put out a DVD of this forgotten show, if for nothing else than the pure beauty and plain sweetness of the young Julie Andrews.
