Herbert Kretzmer, journalist and lyricist, who wrote many memorable lyrics, including for "Togetherness" (Avengers episode The Murder Market) and the songs "Kinky Boots" and "Let's Keep It Friendly" (Patrick Macnee & Honor Blackman), died today, at the age of 95.



Great person. Although I first heard the songs of the duet Patrick Macnee & Honor Blackman in the early 2000s on the Internet, I was fascinated and they stayed in my memory forever.

Worth mentioning "You Were Made For Me" from film Too Hot to Handle (1960). For many years when I was young, it seemed to me that it was the most popular classic American film in the USSR and Russia. Smile

That was an Avengers participant I wasn't even aware of.
Well we've lost another one... Crying or Very sad

Alas, I'm not sure that Togetherness was composed directly for The Avengers, but I did some research on the Internet and found no other use for the song (the song and the author were credited in titles of the Avengers episode The Murder Market).
