Hi Jim,
I realised, subconsciously, that of course it could not have been `just 
filmed` but I hadn`t considered recording first and then miming although I 
know that is often done. (Deborah Carr can`t sing, a succesfull mime in King 
and I, and Kay Kendall couldn`t play trumpet like Kenny Baker, a less 
succesfull mime in `Genevieve`)

As for the `many visual takes` is that not achieved by just having several 
cameras filming the same action simultaneously and then intercutting?
That is the way I have organised amateur video shooting of an event, weddings 
etc.That way if you have one camera running all the time there is a 
continuous soundtrack which can be played throughout varying camera shots.

No doubt the professionals do it differently.
