Audio Samples

From the Manufacturer

World premiere of two 20th Century-Fox scores for big-city true-crime tales set during early twentieth century. GIRL IN THE RED VELVET SWING is Richard Fleischer drama with Ray Milland, Joan Collins. Leigh Harline offers sumptuous melodrama music to match.

The St. Valentine's Day Massacre is Roger Corman gangster pic with Jason Robards Jr., George Segal. Lionel Newman offers original period-flavor swing tunes plus standards. Highlighting is brief but vivid original score by Fred Steiner, composed for stunning battery of percussion, multiple pianos, xylophone, chimes. Though still designed to evoke period, modernist Main Title, End Title offer more than passing resemblance to Jerry Goldsmith's many years later "Time Out" segment of Twilight Zone: The Movie.

Striking! Both scores presented in stereo from original multi-track elements vaulted at Fox. Liner notes by Julie Kirgo complete nice package! Lionel Newman conducts. Intrada Special Collection release limited to 1,000 copies!
