It was filmed in the process, but, as far as I know, never released in the process.

I actually liked the movie when it first came out, probably because of the absolute beauty of Catherine Deneuve. But years later I saw it on some late night movie channel in B/W, dubbed in English. That was, indeed, painful. (Guy leaving the garage and singing "Ciao, you guys")

Were the lyrics dubbed too?

To stray away from Legrand a bit, it's a shame Françoise Dorléac died so young. She was a real beauty.

In the original, all the singing was dubbed (even Gene Kelly!), except Danielle Darrieux

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg was one of the most painful movie experiences of my life. And I can think of few Oscar-winning songs I like less than "The Windmills of Your Mind". That being said, I'm appreciative that his work brought enjoyment to so many others. 

R.I.P.

You have to get rid of that person holding a gun to your head, forcing you to watch all those painful things.
