Saturday tunes: "People stop and stare; they don't bother me"

A petition is circulating online urging the BAFTA (the British Academy of Film & Television Arts) to bestow a posthumous award on the late Jeremy Brett for his long and distinguished career in British theater, film, and television.

American television audiences might know Brett best for his (definitive) portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, but many probably saw him first as the hapless Freddy Eynsford-Hill, whom today we would probably call a stalker -- albeit a stalker with a beautiful tenor voice -- in "My Fair Lady."
