New from Film Score Monthly
9-Jan-2002 - From the holdings of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc. Film Score Monthly has released this doubleheader showcasing two great scores by one of film music's brightest voices: David Shire. The album features the premiere CD release of Farewell, My Lovely (1975), a film noir previously on a United Artists LP, and the first-ever release of Monkey Shines (1988), an Orion film directed by horror legend George Romero.
Finally, one of the legendary Biblical scores of the 1950s gets a premiere CD release: Demetrius and the Gladiators by Franz Waxman. Demetrius and the Gladiators is the 1954 sequel to The Robe (1953), Twentieth Century-Fox's blockbuster introduction of the stereo CinemaScope format. As such Demetrius features a fascinating collaborative situation in which Waxman, who wrote largely an original score, interpolated Alfred Newman's themes from the preceding film.
