Thread Name: Help: Who sang 'What's it all about Alfie?'
Subject: RE: Help: Who sang 'What's it all about Alfie?'
Just watched the film clip following the IMDB page. The film clip/ trailer has Millicent Martin appearing as one of Alfie's conquests at the start of the film. You will have to wait till the end of the film clip to here part of the song. I was quite willing to bow to the popular view that it was Cilia Black until I heard the voice. I don't think this was our Cilla have a listen see what you think. However from the "Facts" given on the IMDB it only gives the information that the original sound track was an instrumental one which was changed for it release in the USA and for it's re-release in the UK and who song was written by but not the name of the singer.

As the IMDB site states that visitors to the IMDB pages compile the facts listed and they are not checked by anyone. I think more research is needed and while you are doing that I'm going to send in some more facts about the film. Yes I confess it was me that sang the song "What's it All about Alfie" when it was dubbed into Chinese under my fare eastern stage name of One Hung Low. Ahh the magic of Cinema it's better than train spotting on a cold night. Who wrote wish upon a star and was it one of the Seven Dwarfs that sang it? Now what were there names?
