Un certo sorriso (Italy)
Limited edition of 2500 copies.
In association with Sony Music and Twentieth Century Fox, La-La Land Records presents its debut release in a new series of classic Golden Age film scores -- A sumptuous 2-CD SET of legendary composer Alfred Newman's (ALL ABOUT EVE, THE ROBE, THE EGYPTIAN, AIRPORT) score to the 1958 Twentieth Century Fox romantic feature film A CERTAIN SMILE, starring Rossano Brazzi, Joan Fontaine and Bradford Dillman, directed by Jean Negulesco. Mr. Newman's gorgeous orchestral composition whisks the listener away on a delightful European romance. The title song performed by the incomparable Johnny Mathis is the icing on this velvety-rich cake. Disc One contains the expanded original film score, restored from 35mm film elements uncovered at Fox, while Disc Two showcases the LP presentation, remastered from the original 1/2 inch tapes stored at Sony Music. Produced by Nick Redman (Disc 1) and Didier C. Deutsch and Mark G. Wilder (Disc 2), and mastered by Daniel Hersch (Disc 1) and Mark G. Wilder (Disc 2), this special release features exclusive liner notes by film music writer Julie Kirgo.
