The Fantastic World of Michael Crawford

Michael Crawford has starred in some of the biggest and most popular hits of all time. From Frank Spencer in "Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em", to the original Phantom in "Phantom of the Opera", both in London's West End and on Broadway; from circus showman in "Barnum" to "EFX", the multi-million dollar extravaganza at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, then the biggest hotel in the world, which he dominated for over two years, playing Merlin, Houdini and H.G. Wells - breaking all existing box-office records. Not forgetting appearances in "Hello Dolly" with Barbra Streisand, "The Knack", "How I Won The War" with John Lennon...
