When this song appeared in the movie Circus of Horrors
, there was no version of it available in America, so Liberty Records set out to make one... quickly. Producer Snuff Garrett was assigned to the task. At the time, he was working with a vocal group called the Statues, but he needed just one singer on "Look For a Star." Group member Buzz Cason was chosen to record it; they cut the track in Nashville on a Saturday with the top session musicians, including bass player Bob Moore, drummer Buddy Harman and piano player Floyd Cramer.
At the session, Liberty head Si Waronker spoke with Garrett about what to call Cason. Since the British singer was Gary Mills, they named Cason "Gary Miles." In our interview with Cason
, he said: "It was a plagiaristic thing that you would never get away with in today's world, but they certainly did and it did fairly well for us. I wrote the B-side, 'Wishing Well,' a little ole song I had."
