An INCREDIBLE TV Musical Spectacular Find!
14 September 2013 | by (San Francisco, United States) – See all my reviews

I just viewed a very rough copy of this special thanks to a collector and can confirm all of Jeffquis' clarifications. The poster from Wales may be confusing memories of this special with excerpts from The Ed Sullivan Show wherein Burton and Andrews DO perform "Simple Folk." I'd also like to add that Stanley Holloway's "Get Me to the Church" is actually quite a large production number with chorus. And finally, although the production may appear "low budget" to today's audiences who are saturated with "over-production" values, I can say whole heartedly that this production most assuredly cost its producers some big money. The stars' salaries alone would warrant a big budget. However, I am pleased to say that the art direction and costumes are in the highly stylized, streamlined fashion so popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s. I am a devotee of "Television Spectaculars" of this era and they all have similar design styles. It wasn't cheap--rather it let the audience focus on the performers and the material (unlike today's music videos and concerts which have so much pyrotechnics that the audience is wowed into thinking they've seen something marvelous!). How I long for those simpler, sophisticated days. Sadly, a special like "The Broadway of Lerner & Loewe" would never be broadcast on the major networks of today. We would find it only on PBS which is where its audience has retreated in these times.
