Talking about brine...as we were in the comments to the last post...here's one of my favourite ever film clips:
The film, of course, is 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks' (based on two books by Mary Norton), the song is 'The Beautiful Briny' and it was written by the Sherman brothers (also songwriters for 'Aristocats', 'Mary Poppins', 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' AND 'The Jungle Book'). According to wikipedia 'The Beautiful Briny' was written for 'Mary Poppins' (1964) but not needed in the end and so carried over to 'Bedknobs' (1971). I never knew that...did you?
See what a difference a day (and an underwater dance sequence) make? Not a care in the world...
