'Dan Dailey and Gale Sherwood star in this treasure from the golden age of live television. Paris in the Springtime is an original musical produced by Max Liebman’s creative team. As late as December 24, 1955, The Cat and the Fiddle [a 1931 Kern-Harbach musical] was announced for the live telecast of January 21, 1956. However, a copyright issue arose suddenly and another musical had to be found — or invented. In short order, Liebman’s script writers William Friedberg and Neil Simon came up with a story of an acting troupe seeking artistic acclaim in Paris. Under the musical direction of Irwin Kostal [who would later create orchestrations for such legendary shows as West Side Story and The Music Man], the score was assembled from the songbooks of Gershwin, Rodgers, Porter, Arlen, Styne, and more. The result is a delightfully satisfying and varied show that brilliantly showcases the talents of the sparkling cast of film, theatre, and cabaret greats: Dailey, Sherwood, Helen Gallagher, Jack Whiting, Carleton Carpenter, and Geneviève. An historical footnote: the Arlen-Harburg classic 'Down With Love' is here sung by Jack Whiting, who introduced the song on Broadway in 1937, in the show 'Hooray for What!' '. (Black and white. Total playing time approx. 86', including original commercials)
