    Myles, a fine choice. I also remember Victor Young for the score of "Around the World in 80 Days" which was best picture of the year IIRC in 1956, and Young got the Oscar for best score (posthumously). Nat King Cole's TV show was something we never missed in those days. Larry

            I was always moved by these lyrics and the fragile, heartfelt way Ms. Flack sang this song. She nailed it.
