On Stage and in the Movies, Dionne Warwick's seventh album for Scepter Records, was recorded and released in 1967. The LP was issued as number 559 in the Scepter Catalog.

History[edit]

The cover art for this LP was simple: Warwick in a multicolored gown against a black background. As mentioned in the liner notes of the Rhino Records 1984 collection Dionne Warwick Anthology,[2] this LP was one of three concept albums recorded by Warwick during her tenure with Scepter. The other two albums identified in the notes are Soulful and The Magic of Believing.

While there were no hit singles from this album, some of the songs that were featured were "Summertime"; a humorous reading of "Anything You Can Do" (alongside an uncredited Chuck Jackson); "You'll Never Walk Alone"; "Something Wonderful", and "Baubles, Bangles, and Beads".

The album, like most of Warwick's Scepter work, was arranged by Burt Bacharach and produced by Bacharach and Hal David; however, none of the material on the album was written by the songwriting duo.
