Premiere CD release of bright, luscious score by Henry Mancini for a 1975 adventure-drama directed by George Roy Hill.
Mancini turned out to be the perfect choice for the assignment, creating source music that worked cohesively with film, including a number of rousing marches in the style of John Philip Sousa and Karl King. Mancini also composed a beautiful theme about the passion of flying ("Free as a Bird"), waltzes, rags, festive music and music for player pianos in the classic style of silent films.
This Quartet Records CD features the entire original stereo LP from album masters preserved in mint condition by UMG. Fortunately, the album includes virtually all the music that appears in the film, this being one of Mancini's shortest scores. Detailed liner notes by Jeff Bond complete the package for the first CD issue of this Mancini classic more than 40 years after it was written.
