Cinerama Holiday Soundtrack
KHCD-ST016FL (MONO) - Cinerama Holiday Soundtrack (1955) - Original score by Morton Gould; Additional music by Jack Shaindlin and Nathan Van Cleave; Orchestra conducted by Jack Shaindlin - First released in February 1955, this movie was the second Cinerama release (the first being "This Is Cinerama", released in 1952). This second movie was very popular, so much so that reserved tickets were almost always recommended by theater owners to prevent long waits in line. Flyers were printed to remind movie goers to reserve tickets, and special reminders were mailed to customers who had filled out surveys on the first movie. The music is upbeat and sophisticated; not world-beating, but much better than the usual travelogue fare. This transcription was derived from a pristine Australian Mercury LP pressing. CD, tran and disc art are included in the download.
