Noël Coward / Susan Hampshire And Adele Leigh - Noël Coward's Great Musical Bitter Sweet mp3 album
Noël Coward, Susan Hampshire And Adele Leigh - Noël Coward's Great Musical Bitter Sweet (LP).
The musical was not one of Coward's more successful. The Columbia album is the most complete rendering of the show on record. In fact, it might as well have been a radio play, too, since Coward adapted it to the aural medium, writing explanatory remarks - in verse, no less - in between the acted scenes.
Bitter Sweet by Noël Coward. Adele Leigh & James Pease. Originally by Peggy Wood & George Metaxa. Originally by Ivy St. Helier.
Bitter Sweet is a 1940 American Technicolor musical film directed by W. S. Van Dyke, based on the operetta Bitter Sweet by Noël Coward. It was nominated for two Academy Awards, one for Best Cinematography and the other for Best Art Direction by Cedric Gibbons and John S. Detlie. The film is based on Coward's stage operetta, which was a hit in 1929 in London. It was filmed twice, first in 1933 in black-and-white (in Britain, with Anna Neagle and Fernand Gravet in the leading roles)
Bitter Sweet is an operetta in three acts, with book, music and lyrics by Noël Coward.

Sir Noël Peirce Coward was an English actor, playwright and composer of popular music. Among his achievements, he received an Academy Certificate of Merit at the 1943 Academy Awards for "outstanding production achievement for In Which We Serve. Books by Noël Coward. Mor. rivia About Bitter Sweet.
A letter which Coward wrote to the beloved musical star Evelyn Laye brought an impassioned riposte of complaint from her husband, actor Frank Lawton, who claimed that Noel had written "some cruel things which neither of us can ever forget". Coward's reaction was brutal.
