Fever, The Music of Peggy Lee
(Capitol). This quasi-documentary sketches Peggy Lee's life and career. Its greatest contribution is the use of performance clips, interviews and informal films to create a portrait of a gifted artist whose human warmth matched her talent. She was terrific even in a shampoo commercial. Her first husband, the guitarist Dave Barbour, remained her great love even beyond their divorce. The bonus clip of Lee singing I Only Have Eyes for You" to Barbour as he accompanies her underlines the heartbreaking story better than the script does in the main section.
