i saw this film on television one night in the early 1960d. It was fun and delightful and, with this score, magically stylish and romantic.

It wasn't long after that I found, going through stacks of cut-out records, the Warner Brothers score album conducted by Ray Heindorf. It probably cost me all of 98 cents. I snapped it up and took it home.

It has delighted for about 60 years -- as a score on a mono LP, as a film on VHS tape, on a stereo LP reissue, on a DVD, on the wonderful FSM CD release and, finally, on Blu ray disc.

Ugh. Last week I watched Mame---or should I say forced myself to stick with it all the way--for the first and likely only time in its entirety. And from early on all I could think was get me back to Rosalind, help! Anyway, Kaper was another one; no matter the shape, the size, the genre he could do no wrong even if he tried. This suite is wonderful.

I always loved Lucille Ball, but her portrayal of Mame wasn't her finest hour. She was too old for the part. One particularly mean critic quipped that the DP had to smear Vaseline on the lens for her closeups.

The Roz film not only benefited greatly from Kaper's wonderful score, but also had that great Comden and Green script. They were geniuses.
