Landau & Bain Sing

Obviously, neither Martin Landau nor Barbara Bain are great singers. Just as obviously, this clip from an Andy Williams variety show, circa 1970, plays as pretty corny today.

However, I don't know, there is something quite charming about it. Bain and Landau, who had co-starred together on MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE just before this, were married, of course, and I believe that you can almost reach out and touch the sincere love they shared. The song is perfectly tailored to their fine acting skills, but some of what you see here, I think, is not acting at all.
