This was Clark's fourth-biggest hit, from songwriter Charlie Chaplin's last film "The Countess from Hong Kong." Petula also recorded this song in French, Italian, and German, making it a huge world-wide smash hit. (Information from Lyrics World.) Suggested by recent visitor George Ruetters -- who coincidentally showed amazing patience in waiting for me to finally get this done.
