Kismet Soundtrack - 1955

The Broadway musical got scrubbed and became a more tasteful MGM film for the entire family. In this one Ann Blyth and Vic Damone fall in love while Howard Keel and Delores Gray fall into something more sophisticated. We all go home happily once Howard dispatches the evil Sebastian Cabot. No operatic voices were used in the making of this musical which is something you might really like. Link in comments.

Kismet - 1967 - Television

Another musical production for television brought to you by Armstrong Flooring, maker of Excelon Tile. Jose Ferrer sings well enough and Barbara Eden swivels her way into your heart.
