The movie had a stellar cast and for the score director Hiller turned to the marvelous Henry Mancini. By this point in his career, Mancini was a legend, having scored an amazing number of great films, films to which his music added immeasurably.
For Married To It, which was one of his last films, Mancini was most likely asked to use Mitchell's "The Circle Game" as the main and end title, given the importance Hiller places on it in the film. But the rest of the score is pure Mancini, but a Mancini with a good deal more synth work than was usual for him, although he still employs a full orchestra for several of the cues.
Still, the melodies are glorious and the dramatic cues work beautifullyplus Mancini's gorgeous orchestration and arrangement of "The Circle Game" is wonderful. Hiller would end up not using a lot of scorethe cues in the film itself are quite short, but hearing them in their entirety is a joy and a delight.
For this CD, we used Mancini's master mixes and we present every note he wrote for the film. For the CD's end title, we used an alternate arrangement of "The Circle Game" since the film simply replays the main title.
We also include several bonus tracks, which include yet another arrangement of "The Circle Game," an alternate main title with music by Mancini, and two source cues that play under party scenesboth are classic Mancini tunes"(I Love You And) Don't You Forget It" and "Mr. Lucky."
