Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

LP (Item 9231) Colgems, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 12

Frank DeVol did the orchestral score for this groovy 60s film about racial tensions at the dinner table – and the music is very much in keeping with some of his more famous work from the time. Lots of light flourishes, and the occasional "stock" groovy moment. The score features a vocal version of the theme by Billy Hill – plus the cuts "Sunset & Glory", "Dear Old Dad", "Happy Child", "Drive In", and "Two's A Majority". The soundtrack also features a few readings of "The Glory Of Love", oddly used in this film of racial conflict as a theme of compromise.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

My Geisha
RCA, 1962. Very Good+
Shirley MacLaine as a geisha? Weirder things have certainly happened on screen – but the film still definitely stands out as one of the odder 60s cinematic moments! Fortunately, Franz Waxman scores the whole thing with enough of a serious air to offset the silliness – and actually, ... LP, Vinyl record album
