Music by Lyn Murray

Buysoundtrax.com

World premiere release of two Lyn Murray soundtracks for Paramount films starring Grace Kelly. First on docket is colorful score for 1955 Alfred Hitchcock classic To Catch A Thief with Cary Grant alongside Kelly in exciting mystery of former jewel thief now suspected of new robbery. His subsequent pursuit of real thief forms basis of tale. Murray plays to lighter aspect of picture for opening music, then takes off with stars on their picturesque chase. Moments for romance, humor have their say as well. Second score is brief, albeit dramatic score for 1954 Mark Robson film The Bridges At Toko-Ri, set during Korean conflict with WWII veteran William Holden being recalled into active duty, reluctantly parting with wife Kelly to pursue duties on aircraft carrier headed for battle. Mickey Rooney, Earl Holliman lend sensational support. Stunning picture plays through then brings trio of soldiers together for finale that packs a wallop. Murray anchors with powerful music for wartime locale, then launches into carrier motif for low brass. Unobtrusive score selections play momentarily, then Murray wraps with dynamic fortissimo coda. Powerful major-key finish! Following score are source pieces heard throughout film. Both scores presented in mono from Paramount digital protection copies in beautiful condition. All cues available on master tapes are included, with bulk of each score present including all major set pieces. Two dynamic sides of this under-represented now available at last! Lyn Murray conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!
