Notes and Editorial Reviews
The title of this collection may raise a few eyebrows when the tracklisting is perused. Film buffs each have their own particular favourites when it comes to 'classic' movies, and the lists that regularly appear of 'the very best films of all time' often make one wonder whose opinions have been sought! Undoubtedly some of the films represented in this CD were outstanding, and have stood the test of time. Others were very popular in their day, but for various reasons they have slipped from the conscious memory of many of us. Among the truly great Hollywood composers you'll find Max Steiner, Miklos Rozsa, Dimitri Tiomkin, Alfred Newman, Elmer Bernstein, Bronislau Kaper, Henry Mancini, Jerome Moross and Ernest Gold. But be prepared for a few pleasant surprises from Ray Martin, Ron Grainer, Ron Goodwin and Robert Farnon, in an excerpt from his most widely acclaimed film score.
