    Thanks, Bobbi! I’m so glad (but not surprised) that you share my love for these two brilliant performers. It is such a joy to me to find these gems available online — and to see that they are even better than I remembered!

    I thought this was a highly unlikely duo– Burnett’s voice couldn’t possibly keep up with Andrews’ and Andrews was too stiff and regal to relate to Burnett– yet, somehow they work together beautifully. Thanks for a great clip.

    I think they were as surprised as anyone how well their chemistry worked on and off-stage when they made this in 1962. They became the closest of friends and did another terrific concert together in 1989.
