I heard a great story on how “The Look Of Love came to be: Burt Bacharach and his partner Hal David were watching a screening of an early cut of “Casino Royale” when a smokin hot image of actress Ursula Andres fills the screen and nearly sets it aflame!
      Bacharach turns to his collaborator and says “Look at that! what is that? When Hal David turns to his partner and quietly reply’s, THAT…Is “The Look of Love”
      Indeed!…Jeeze I love that record! And Ursula Andres? She’s not so bad either!
