Despite the distinguished cast that includes Beau Bridges and director Peter Ustinov in addition to Burton and Taylor, this weird little memento from the 1970s is mostly forgotten today. Sill, fans of film scoring will always remember this movie thanks to its fun and addictive score by Dominic Frontiere.
The composer creates a catchy tune for Hammersmith and uses harmonica to represent the folk hero simplicity of the two innocent people caught in his traps. A selection of lively source cues are interspersed with the underscore to provide a brisk listening experience for those who can't get enough of the 1970s.
The album recreates the program of the original Capitol LP which had most of the music from the film. Detailed liner notes are provided by Gergely Hubai, who discusses the film and the score based on original interviews. The 12-page booklet contains several stills and even a track-by-track rundown of the program.
