Not too long after composing the music for this brilliant 1956 film starring David Niven, Shirley MacLaine, and Cantinflas, Victor Young passed away at the age of 56 on November 11, 1956. He did, however, leave behind a legacy of musical classics that will endure forever.

In addition to the title tune, which became a Billboard Pop Top 100 single for Decca that summer [his last], going to # 13 [the flip was a vocal version by Bing Crosby with Young's backing and which also charted at # 25], he composed such gems as A Ghost Of A Chance, Stella By Starlight, and My Foolish Heart, among others, and also put seven other tunes onto the charts from 1950 to 1955.

There are several Victor Young CDs available, but none among them, as far as I can tell [some listings do not show contents], contain his hits, other than the one in this album.

A concert violinist by profession, he had been a band leader/ conductor for a number of radio personalities, among them Al Jolson, and in June 1950 secured his first hit single with an instrumental version of La Vie En Rose [# 27], one of seven charted versions that year although well back of the # 9 vocal by Tony Martin, under the billing Victor Young & His SInging Strings.

Two months later, under the billing Victor Young And His Orchestra And Chorus And Don Cherry, their rendition of Mona Lisa went to # 7, one of seven charted versions of that song from the film Captain Carey, U.S.A., and second only to the Nat "King" Cole # 1. The flipside, The Third Man Theme from the classic Orson Welles film, had six charted versions itself. including the Young/Cherry collaboration, but this time they had to settle for a # 22, well back of the hit versions by Anton Karas and Guy Lombardo [both # 1].

I have loved this score since I was a child. I'm 56 now. I was fortunate enough to find an original Decca LP in STEREO of this soundtrack. I found it decades ago in a bargain bin. It's the original on the Decca label. Apart from the score itself which is brilliant, the quality of the original recording was tranferred beautifully to vinyl - a nice hefty piece of vinyl. In the waning days of vinyl LP's, the record companies got very cheap by using inferior grade vinyl and not much of it. Records could actually bend. Not this one. It's sturdy and rigid. I suspect this adds to the quality of the sound reproduction. It has a quality that you just don't hear nowadays despite today's technology. Definitely one of the finest soundtrack LP's ever produced.
