LAST COPY !
Limited to 2000 copies
The exquisitely talented and woefully underrepresented-on-CD composer Victor Young finally joins our CD Club! Young composed some of the most beautiful of all film music melodies, lays claim to one of the most vast and successful catalogs of songs composed during America's songbook Golden Age, and, without question, was one of the greatest and most acclaimed film composers of his day.
In this handsomely photographed romance, three American women (starlets Jean Peters, Maggie McNamara and Dorothy McGuire) pin their hopes for love on wishes they make by tossing coins into the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
The classic story of three loves has just been released by 20th Century Fox on DVD and now, for the first time, Victor Young's beguiling score finally sees the light of day.
It's a score that displays Young's skills as both a composer and an arranger. But despite Young being himself a superlative songwriter, the film's producer instead called up the successful songwriting team of Sammy Kahn and Jule Styne and allowed them one day to come up with a strong pop song based on the title Three Coins in the Fountain. They delivered a classic and it was incorporated into Young's own score.
At last, Victor Young's long-requested Three Coins in the Fountain is available to anyone who has ever been in love, or longed to hear a beautiful film score.
