  • World premiere release of two Hugo Friedhofer scores to Paramount films directed by Mitchell Leisen. First is 1949 costume adventure about 15th-Century Borgia family, starring Paulette Goddard. Friedhofer took opportunity to write serious Renaissance-style score using several established "closed forms" including the passacaglia plus offering regal fanfares, courtly music, battle sequences, more. Score is rousing, profuse with period color. Second score is 1950 WWII espionage thriller with Alan Ladd. Here Friedhofer provides several action cues plus gorgeous love theme used judiciously in score. Famous Oscar-winning Jay Livingston/Ray Evans song "Mona Lisa" was featured in film as instrumental accordion piece warning O.S.S. officers of Nazi activities and this instrumental cue also appears on CD. Score here is dark-edged, dramatic with riffs of violence. Both scores appear in crisp mono sound from original Paramount elements. Hugo Friedhofer composes, Irvin Talbot conducts. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remains!
