Although the title of the film (and book, and TV series) soon became a synonym for sex and sin, the largely orchestral score to the movie is far less sexy than you'd expect. Franz Waxman handled the scoring of the film in pretty much the same way as he'd handled a lot of his other classic Hollywood work – with poise and sophistication. The orchestrations for the soundtrack are very complex, with many romantic and dramatic themes running through the entire album – and the overall effect is strong, but very traditional. Titles include "The Rape", "Chase In The Woods", "After The Party", "Rossi's Visit", and "Swimming Scene". (Mono pressing. Cover has light wear, small seam splits, and remmnants of masking tape on front.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Over the years, how many films have been made about this guy anyway?
