So far the best TV version. . .
This version is closer to the Broadway show than Carol's 1972 TV production--and its a better show than the '72 version. Carol is perfect as Winnifred, and the rest of the cast are also in top form. Elliot Gould is a nice surprise in his role, and Jane White is absolutely WONDERFUL. Shani Wallis and Bill Hayes are fun, and the chorus is very good, too. The only weaknesses are replacing the original Spanish PANIC with a newly composed dance number (who actually wrote this music, anyway?--its not nearly as fun as that from the B'way show)and taking out HAPPILY EVER AFTER and replacing it with a love song for Carol. The love song doesn't fit at all. . .otherwise, this is a great TV production from the 1960s and it should be released on DVD for all to enjoy.
