The blockbuster film starring Mitzi Gaynor, Rossano Brazzi and John Kerr spawned this record-breaking album full of some of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's most popular songs. Opera singer Giorgio Tozzi dubbed for Brazzi's singing voice on the beautiful 'Some Enchanted Evening' and others, but Mitzi Gaynor provided her own vocals on songs such as the famous 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair', 'I'm In Love With A Wonderful Guy', and the delightful 'Honey Bun'. The statistics are frightening - USA: 161 weeks in the chart, 31 of them at number 1; UK: a total of 115 weeks at number 1, 70 of them consecutively. The UK figures are (to date) a record.
