Egyptian, The



Egyptian, The (1954)

Bernard Herrmann, Alfred Newman 

Released in:

Glorious collaboration from Herrmann and Newman!
Bret Wheadon (June 9, 2001)
"The Egyptian" is a stunning soundtrack, filled with rich, majestic themes, choral cues, melodic suites
and the full glory of the Fox Studio orchestra. A rare collaboration between these two giants of film
music (brought about by a truncated composing schedule), led to some of the most vibrant writing of their respective
careers. While most of the tapes survived in good to excellent condition, there is a noticable wow and
flutter in some tracks, but don't let that dissuade you from enjoying this marvelously varied, classic score.
FSM needs a special award given to them for releasing these (and many other) archival tracks from the Fox vaults.
While the soundtrack bears the unmistakable stamp of Herrmann and Newman's other scores, the romanticism is also strongly reminiscent of Korngold's sweeping themes from the 1930s and 40s. Highly recommended.
