“Dusoleil Walks Through the Wall” – Amour

Music: Michel Legrand   Lyrics: Didier Van Cauwelaert

French film Mr. Peek-a-boo premiered on this day in 1951.  The film, like this musical, is based on Marcel Ayme’s story of a man who could walk through walls.  In this quirky song, the timid Dusoleil narrates his actions, and the tempo picks up towards the end when he discovers his special ability and decides he should see a doctor.  Of interesting note:  There is a statue in Paris of Dusoleil appropriately in the midst of walking through a wall (pictured below).
