After that fairly dreadful CAMELOT last night, I, too, will take DR Elmore's lead and pull out the Original Broadway Cast recording and listen to the songs the way they were meant to be sung.

What little I saw/heard of "Camelot" last night, I have to say that the OBC and the movie on DVD are tons better.  The OBC is perfection for the vocals.  For orchestrations and proof of the sheer glory of the score, nothing beats the magnificent Alfred Newman supervision of the movie soundtrack.  I barely recognized the Investiture sequence, musically.  The phrasing was a bit off, IMO.  The film's investiture sequence is one of the astounding glories of musical film.  Oh, well...

And what was anyone thinking when they thunk of Gabriel Byrne for Arthur?  (And what was Lerner thinking with al those nicknames liberally spread throughout the book?  Lance, Ginny, Pelli, Lance, Pelli, Ginny, etc., etc.).

I watched "Survivor" (stupid Erik, stupid, stupid, stupid), "Gray's Anatomy" (good episode, except for what seems to be a "cop-out"), and "Lost" (GREAT episode, IMO) last night.

I have "Smallville", "Ugly Betty", and "Supernatural" waiting patiently in my DVR cache.

NOT REALLY SPOILAGE, BUT FOR YOU ULTRA-SENSITIVE TYPES, HERE'S SOME SPACE ANYWAY DEPARTMENT:







Yes, I think this "Survivor" will go down as the one with the stupidest group of men ever.  And that's saying a lot.

"Lost" was interesting.  I'm wondering if "Emily" is going to pop up again.  What are various theories re:  Christian & Claire?  Ghosts?  And I think this now confirms that Richard Alpert (does anyone get that joke?  Or am I the only Baba Ram Dass/Timothy Leary aficianado here?) is "ageless."  I know we talked about this when he appeared to the young Ben some time ago.





MORE SPACE SO THAT JOSE'S HEAD DOESN'T EXPLODE.   :o

TOD:

CD:  Capercaillie (DakotaCelt, are you listening?)
DVD:  just finished up a bunch of review stuff, including a 3 DVD set called "Women & Spirituality," a set of late 80s early 90s Canadian documentaries where I was surprised to see Gabe and Zach's former Sunday School teacher listed as a Production Assistant!  Now I'm on to something called The Ruth Rendell Mysteries, which so far is proving to be less than Christie-tastic.  :)  I also have to finish up John Dexter's production of Twelfth Night.  Tommy Steele is actually quite charming, against all possible odds.

Kal: But can he dance and sing?
Ramya; I dont know.... but he is still a charming person

I was surprised to see Gabe and Zach's former Sunday School teacher listed as a Production Assistant!

The fact that they had to "quit the business" immediately after they worked with your sons is merely a coincidence.   ;)

Vice versa, actually.  The films were done between 89-92.  Gabe was born in 1996 and Zach in 1998, so they probably started Sunday School around 2001 or 2002.

To be honest, I think I will likely delete CAMELOT on the DVR without watching the rest of it. I was just so disappointed and irritated with the whole mess.

I do love Newman's Oscar-winning orchestrations for the film (wish the singers were up to their level of expertise).

In fact, CAMELOT is another musical I'd love to see redone correctly on film. I have no clue who'd be the right director for the project, however.

I think one of the reasons I'm so outraged over the CAMELOT debacle was that you lucky viewers saw it for free. My ticket cost $225! I think the entire audience should demand the Philharmonic refund the money.  Everyne was so excited after last year's MY FAIR LADY, which was well-cast and did most of the score, but James Brennan directed the MFL, not the unclassy Mr Price.

I, too, love the Camelot orchestrations (and the gorgeous vocal arrangements by Ken Darby).  I think Camelot and Finian's Rainbow are the apex of Darby's film achievements.

Well, DR Ron Pulliam, for the investiture, you heard my beloved Trude Rittman's underscoring from the original production. Loewe adored her so much that he provided for her in his will; she'd worked with him from BRIGADOON through the end of Lerner & Loewe.  Someone yesterday produced on Broadwayworld.com a sound tape of the entire Morgan le Fey sequence from 1960 with M'el Dowd and Roddy McDowell, including all of Trude's dance music for the court of Morgan le Fey and a complete "Persuasion" and it was a sheer delight to hear it all conducted by Franz Allers.
