TOD:

I can't think of any Criterion commentaries I've heard that I didn't think enhanced the viewing experience. Most of those commentators are such experts with the careers of the directors of the films that they bring in a world of detail into their commentaries.

As I've said on many occasions, John Fricke's commentaries on the films of Judy Garland are peerless. I've listened to each one multiple times because they are professionally put together, he has a nice, easy conversational tone, perfect for commentary. The late Ron Haver also had a a brilliant way of enhancing a film through his commentaries. The one on Criterion's SINGIN' IN THE RAIN laserdisc is sublime, and he did a wonderful job with their KING KONG, too. I'd much rather hear his commentaries for those films that the ones used on their DVD counterparts.

New episodes of THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES (and PRISON BREAK for those who watch).

Alas, no MEDIUM tonight.

Looks like I'll be spending most of my time today finishing up the DVD set of SOUL FOOD. Then it's on to another volume of Power Rangers. As juvenile as those are, they're kind of fun to watch.

Click HERE for a clip of "You're Gonna Love Tomorrow/Love Will See Us Through" with the original Broadway cast on the David Frost show!! :D

Another clip that absolutely gave me chills sending me back decades to seeing them do it on the stage of the Winter Garden.

Can anyone seeing this not marvel at Sondheim's genius and also the superb counterpoint choreography of Michael Bennett for the two couples as they're singing and dancing together?

Just makes my heart ache that the entire show wasn't filmed.

I thought it was filmed and is available at the Museum of Performing Arts (or whatever it's called).  At least several people have told me it is.

To my knowledge, there are two half hours of footage (one sound, one silent) shot of the show on tour plus the footage we saw at YouTube some weeks ago that is about 15 minutes worth.

I know of no complete filming or taping of the entire original show.

Well, I had a rather touching time yesterday reuniting Frances' nephew with his long ago U of W and NYC friend.  They are both pretty much slack-jawed at reconnecting after almost 50 years.  And in the continuing synchronicity department, the theater guy here mentioned to me yesterday he was glad to be reconnecting with his old friends because he had just read of another of their class' alum's death--James Callahan.  I'm sure you of a certain age will remember Mr. Callahan.  Well, Mr. Callahan was married (at least at one time) to the eldest daughter of our next door neighbor in SLC!  (This was around the time of "Wendy and Me"--remember that one?).

I bet FJL or Elmore will know, but I know I've been told (perhaps incorrectly) that the entire show is available for viewing at one of the Museums in NYC.

The entire ORIGINAL show or that low-wattage revival with Blythe Danner and Polly Bergen from several years ago?

Yes DR JANE - Mr Frank Sinatra insisted that his character still be alive and kicking at the end of YOUNG AT HEART, unlike that of John Garfield in the original.

Than his character should have been more likable, even with the other changes made.  I was young & still a big Sinatra fan when I saw the movie, and it never felt right.  
 
The arrogance! It's also a bit laughable, dying didn't hurt John Garfield's popularity, he was so well liked they brought him back to play a different character in the-sort of-sequel.

No, I've been told repeatedly that there's a video of the original production, complete, available for viewing at some museum whose name escapes me at the moment.  But I could of course have been given incorrect info.

Speaking of Cyd, lovely article on Tony Martin in yesterday's NY Times.  (You may have to be registered with the Times to  get the article, I'm not sure, but the gist is that he and Cyd are still very much alive and still very much in love.)

WOW!-Thanks.

No, one of Sondheim's biggest regrets is that FOLLIES did not get recorded for the Lincoln Center NYPL Theatre Collection.  Mine, too.

I believe there is a complete video of the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera production directed by someone not as good as the original director in the NYPL Collection.
