If All The World's A Stage, Oh What A Son Of A Bitch I Am, Once Upon A Time-Anthony Newley

Can Heironymous Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness? was a film by the late great Anthony Newley, starring his then wife Joan Collins and his daughter, Tara Newley. Fair to say it got slated on release, not least for the title, being voted in the top ten worst mopive titles ever...but, as a fan of the Newley, I love it! I'm not quite buying into all this Fellini stuff mind, but suffice to say it's a fun,colourful '60's' movie and if you like that kind of stuff, you'll probably love this. As for the song's, well, here are three (also check out Brucie's prophetic 'On The Boards' here ) from the soundtrack and again,they're all great! If only musicals were like this now then I might actually go along to a few...and by the way, where would Bowie be without Newley!?
