Love is a Many-Splendored Thing was nominated for a whopping eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actress, and it won for Best Costume Design, Best Song (by Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster) and, best of all, Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic of Comedy Picture.
Alfred Newman's score is one of the most romantic and beautiful scores ever written. Newman's stunning variations on the Fain and Webster song, along with his own gorgeous secondary themes creates a unique atmosphere with a swirling tenderness that's almost indescribable. The music for Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing aches and roils with love, loneliness, lost feelings, and confused hearts. It's a glorious listening experience and one of Newman's crowning achievements in film scoring, and that's saying something given the number of masterpieces he wrote during his long and illustrious career.
For The Seven Year Itch, Newman's score is monothematic, with many variations on the same theme"The Girl Upstairs." It also has a classic Newman main title that gets things off to a rousing start.
Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing was released previously by Varese Sarabande and was a quick sellout. For this release, we've remastered it and moved two early source cues, one of which is by Leigh Harline, to after the film score proper, giving the actual early score cues a bit more prominence.
The Seven Year Itch is making its world premiere on this CD. We've included the main title, and several variations on "The Girl Upstairs," which represents most of what was usable from the somewhat problematic original materials. The entire program is presented in that unparalleled Fox stereo sound.
Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing / The Seven Year Itch is limited to 1,000 copies only.
