This time around, we're At the Movies! It's a sampling of famous, and not so famous, themes from films of the Atomic Age. We look at themes from comedies, spy flicks, film noir, and even some exploitation and B-movies. These are both from original sountracks and from other artists of the hi-fi era. We feature selections from Henry Mancini, John Barry, Victor Young & His Orchestra, Dean Elliott, Neal Hefti, and many more.
