50 Year-old Olivier Recording Finally Released

A lost audio tape featuring the late SIR LAURENCE OLIVIER starring in theatrical production THE ENTERTAINER has been discovered nearly 50 years after it was made. The footage was recorded at London's Palace Theatre in 1957 by music giant EMI, but the quality was so bad it simply became buried in the company's archives. However, a member of staff recently unearthed it and the tape has now been cleaned and digitally remastered. Olivier's third wife, DAME JOAN PLOWRIGHT says, "I'm very interested that it's been discovered. I shall be fascinated to listen to it."
