Alfred Newman's A Certain Smile
14-Aug-2011 - In association with Sony Music and Twentieth Century Fox, La-La Land Records presents its debut release in a new series of classic Golden Age film scores, a sumptuous 2-CD set of legendary composer Alfred Newman’s score to the 1958 Twentieth Century Fox romantic feature film A Certain Smile, starring Rossano Brazzi, Joan Fontaine and Bradford Dillman, directed by Jean Negulesco. Mr. Newman’s gorgeous orchestral composition whisks the listener away on a delightful European romance. The title song performed by the incomparable Johnny Mathis is the icing on this velvety-rich cake. Disc One contains the expanded original film score, restored from 35mm film elements uncovered at Fox, while Disc Two showcases the LP presentation, remastered from the original 1/2 inch tapes stored at Sony Music. This special release features exclusive liner notes by film music writer Julie Kirgo. This is a limited edition of 2500 copies.
