Steve Lawrence and Edie Gorme sounded so well together! I loved watching them.  Remember "Portrait of My Love?" I'm pretty sure I still have that album.

Apparently, I am not old enough, which is a good thing in my mind, haha.  I have not heard of either of those names before, haha.

I think he chose a good stage name. He was one of my Mother's favorites.
