A pretty good summation of Hammerstein's career.
10 June 2012 | by standardmetalSee all my reviews

I have to say right off the bat that I'm not a big fan of Mr. Hammerstein, but he has certainly done some excellent things. From the classic "Show Boat" which he wrote with Jerome Kern in the 20's to his last work with Richard Rodgers there are many memorable moments but also moments of pure sentimentality, "The Sound of Music" being a case in point.

I could have done with some more extended excerpts in many instances and some mention of Rodgers' collaboration with Larry Hart might also have been mentioned, at least in passing, but I don't recall that it was.

I was very interested in Sondheim's remarks particularly in view of his major differences as a lyricist.

I could have done with a longer documentary but I suppose they wanted to leave time for their fund-raising.
