The Movie

Never saw it--this was a sequel to Elizabeth Taylor in London and gets exactly the same amount of airplay on American television--none. Too bad, too. I never cared much for Liz, but Sophia's a sweetie.


The Music

I'll put this in the machine again. I can't remember the music.


Release Notes

For a long time this had the dubious distinction of being the most expensive LP I owned--I bought the only copy I ever saw and I paid through the nose for it. So I had mixed emotions when Pendulem put it out in the late 90's on CD at a reasonable price. I don't see it around anymore--maybe it'll become pricey as well.

Columbia put out two versions of the LP. The first one (Sophia standing with her purse) is the regular issue, and the one I own. Its cover art was also used for the CD. The second version had music (not Barry's) called The Bride Wore Yolande.
