Notes and Editorial Reviews

Winner of nine Academy Awards (second only to Walt Disney) and nominated for 45 (second among composers only to John Williams), Alfred Newman ranks as one of the greatest screen composers of all time, writer of such acclaimed film scores as How Green Was My Valley, All About Eve, Wuthering Heights, The Greatest Story Ever Told, Love Is a Many Splen­ dored Thing and The Song of Bernadette. But this Academy Award-nominated score, to the 1959 George Stevens film adaptation of The Diary of Anne Frank, occupies a special place in the hearts of Newman fans, and not just because the story on screen that it accompanies is so heart-rending and enduring. Contrary to what one might expect of a movie set in The Holocaust, the music to the film is Read more lyrical, even on occasion light- hearted; as Newman put it, “...the music would be motivated by high ideals, the tenderness and spiritual qualities inherent in their family life and their special badge of courage.” Indeed, the humanity that has made the diary of Anne Frank one of the most profound documents to sur- vive The Holocaust is expressed in every note Newman wrote for the film. Real Gone Music proudly presents the original stereo film soundtrack album for the first time on legitimate CD with the original album artwork and new liner notes. Read less
