“All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.”
“Who wants a bucket of cement….?”
I remember Anna Russell had an alternate version of Hamlet . She called it Hamletto, or Il Prosciutino (The Little Ham)!
Burton was amazing as Arthur (as he later proved to be in Hamlet and elsewhere), but Julie was the shining star, truly radiant even without unleashing that amazing voice. Ah, the good olde days!
We’ll just let people wonder what the king is doing tonight in….
Yes. Give it a listen! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mrfqd4UjCGg
That’s a great movie as well. I preferred the Broadway show of Camelot . Julie Andrews is the queen of this song in more ways than one and always will be.
What, me intimidated? With this usual gang of idiots? Potrzebie!
You said it, Ish. Although I’ve heard and sung this piece a hundred times or more, I still laughed and marveled at the “on-the-moneyness” of this song when I posted it.
“I’ve been thinking of inviting Sir Lancelot to the ball…”
♪♫"I beg of you, ma’am, withhold your invitation.
I swear to you this challenge will be met.
And when I have finished up the operation,
I’ll serve him to your highness en brochette!
You’ll pierce right through him?
I’ll barbecue him!
A wicked thrust?
’Twill be dust to dust!
From fore to aft?
He’ll feel a draft!
You may sit by me at the ball
If you demolish him in battle
In fact, I know I’d cry were you not by me at the ball!"♪♫
