Patti sang As Long As He Needs Me with verve and tenderness to rival the great Georgia Brown. It really is an aria and she brought the full measure of her theatrical and musical skill to the song and ended it climbing a ladder facing the audience, which I've never forgotten. She was brilliant in a very dark production. BTW I still can't believe that Oliver! won the Best Picture Oscar over Funny Girl, The Lion In Winter, Romeo and Juliet and 2001 A Space Odyssey, which wasn't even nominated.
