Singer and actress Elaine Paige is best known for her work in musical theatre. Paige was selected to play Eva Pern in the first production of Evita in 1978 which brought her to the attention of the broader public. In 1985 Paige released I Know Him So Well with Barbara Dickson from the musical Chess which remains the biggest-selling record by a female duo. She appeared in The King and I from 2000 to 2001 and six years later she returned to the West End stage in The Drowsy Chaperone. She has also worked sporadically in television. She has released 22 solo albums of which eight were consecutively certified gold and another four multi-platinum. Paige is also featured on seven cast albums and has sung in concerts across the world. Since 2004 she has hosted her own show on BBC Radio 2 called Elaine Paige on Sunday. Told through missing-believed-wiped archive interviews and rare and unseen footage of the singer/actress talking this insightful DVD is a worthy addition to any Elaine Paige collection. Items genuinely unseen and never before seen on DVD including film from the ITN archive. Includes lost and now restored TV interviews from the past and rare film of Elaine talking about her career. A must for the die-hard fan!
