Mandy Patinkin and Lee Remick Follies finally opens in London later this month, 16 years after its Broadway premiere. Tonight's film about Sondheim's cult musical tells the story behind the unforgettable and fascinating evening at New York's Lincoln Center in front of a packed and ecstatic audience, when a starry cast was assembled for a Gala
Concert and recording. The entire show was rehearsed in just four days, but the memory of that frantic time and the performance which followed remain as fresh as yesterday.

Licia Albanese Carol Burnett
Betty Comden and Adolph Green Erie Mills
Montevecchi Phyllis Newman Elaine Stritch and Stephen Sondheim and Thomas Z. Shepard , the recording producer. With the New York
