We are not big The Little Prince people. I'm sure we have a copy of the book around somewhere, in French, but we haven't read it to the kid. And I guess I read it myself at some point, though I can't really recall.
What I certainly don't remember, at least without several years of hypnotic recovered memory therapy, is ever seeing the1974 movie musical adaptation of The Little Prince. Written and composed by Lerner and Loewe [My Fair Lady, Camelot, Brigadoon] And directed by Stanley Donen [Charade, Funny Face, Singing In The Freakin' Rain!] Starring Bob Fosse as The Snake. Ho. Ly. Smokes, people! What the hell was going on in the 1970s??
And why not just throw in a version of Fosse re-edited and mashed up with the guy who stole all his moves, Michael Jackson, singing "Billie Jean"? [via maud newton]
