  • Delight for Jerry Fielding fans! World premiere release of complete soundtrack to David Giler send-up of THE MALTESE FALCON with George Segal (as Sam Spade, Jr.) plus players from original 1941 classic (Lee Patrick, Elisha Cook, Jr.). Fielding establishes with lively, frenzied idea for orchestra plus synthesizer, then goes in numerous directions: sparkling big band, dramatically rhythmic, politely romantic, deadly serious, you name it. Intrada presents score in dynamic audio from excellent condition 1/4" two-track stereo session masters courtesy of Sony Pictures. Produced by Douglass Fake. Nick Redman offers insights on film, score in colorful booklet. Jerry Fielding conducts.
