[DVD, library]

It’s hard to believe that I’ve gone 44 years without seeing this, especially since the original stage concept recording was a much beloved LP in our house while I was growing up – my sister had the sheet music and played it more often than Chopin, and I could (and still can) quote the lyrics word-for-word. So it pains me to see a film interpretation dominated by terrible acting, mediocre singing, and orchestrations buried in the sound mix. God-awful [pun intended].
