    The Lena Horne-FS Duet prompts a trivia question -- computers not allowed -- Another legendary guest on that "Here's To The Ladies" Special "performed" a memorable version of "High Hopes." Who was that special Lady?

    I went to buy a copy of this for a friend, and I can't find one except used or from third party sellers. Has this gone out of print?

    Out of print for some time I believe. Nothing usually wrong with 3rd party sellers as long as you check their ratings.

    Just watching Frank and Shirley Jones singing "If I Loved You." Absolutely thrilling! And we all know how Frank "owns" the "Soliloquy." I think Frank would have been a magnificent Billy Bigelow, and it's our great loss that the project fell through. The Jones duet is truly awesome!
