A Little Night Music

About

Isn't it bad? Isn't it poor? Yes, and Taylor's rendition of 'Send in the Clowns' - like Rex Harrison in Doctor Dolittle, or maybe William Shatner bashing out 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' - isn't one of the high points. An ill-starred attempt to turn Sondheim's hit musical version of Bergman's Smiles of a Summer Night into mainstream English-language material, and filming it in Austria didn't help - the box-office magic of The Sound of Music failed to work here.
