From the Manufacturer

A double CD with the 112 musical minutes composed by Michel Legrand for Richard Brooks's classic, starring Jean Simmons, who was married to Brooks at the time. In The Happy Ending (1968), Legrand gave the director an elaborate, assorted, enthusiastic and complex score which worked as a connecting thread for this story about marital failure. This is one of Legrand's greatest classics and one of the Sixties' best soundtracks where the beautiful song 'What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?', sung by Michael Dees, stands out among another good pocketful of songs, all of them with lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman.

Having been available before in a very limited Film Score Monthly release (The MGM Soudtrack Treasury, FSM Box 03) which quickly sold out, this is a new opportunity to own this Michel Legrand masterpiece. Keeping with FSM's meticulous production, this new edition includes a 20 page booklet with many color stills from the film and the liner notes by its original producer, Lukas Kendall.
