recall seeing Pet Clark in an open-top Rolls in Juan les Pins in late 60s when i was about 8 or 9? what a thrill!
Happened to see her late nite last week on TCM in a wonderful old English comedy "Vote for Huggins". how did she get the role? she must have been a teenager and therefore a very young sensation?

I worked wit Ms. Clark on the tour of SUNSET BOULEVARD. Not only is she magnificently talented, she is a consummate professional and a joy to work with.

Wonderful! My first memory of feeling grown up was listening to Petula Clark sing Downtown (even tho I was 5). Can't wait to listen to the interview.

I recently saw Ms. Clark in a non-singing role in "The Runaway Bus."

It was a pleasure.

+ fond memories of the '60s.
