It would be a lie to write that I have been waiting a long time for the soundtrack release of Up In Central Park because I never thought that anyone had the original studio recordings. Also, this is, perhaps, Deanna Durbin's worst movie. (That is not to suggest that Miss Durbin's other films were bad as I find almost all of them delightful in one form or another.) But Up In Central Park, which should have at least been filmed in color, was poorly directed, had too few songs, and was...well...just plain boring.
However, the soundtrack album is a pure delight! The selections sound crisp and clean, and Deanna Durbin's voice is a delight throughout. Dick Haymes also sounds very good. In addition, there are selctions from the 78 rpm set of this same show featuring Jeanette MacDonald. Ironically, I had just purchased the MacDonald record set a few weeks before this CD was issued. Now I can listen to it in my car or while I am writing or painting. How wonderful is that? (We live in a truly remarkable time when we can enjoy these old recordings in their remastered states.) Another winner from Sepia Records. (And checkout the other Deanna Durbin CDs they have in their catalogue.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Dick and Deanna January 22, 2013
By Brian
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the only time Deanna Durbin and Dick Haymes ever worked together.The film itself isn't bad,but it was no threat to The Sound Of Music or Oklamahoma.
The songs leave a lot to be desired,but if your a Deanna Durbin fan like me,its worth pickin up.
The quality of the CD isn't bad.
Its sort of a shame this film didn't do as good as it should have.
The song Close As Paes In A Book is the best in this lineup.
I would buy it.Deanna is,as she always was,at her best and she makes the most of a disappointing film.

Someone here deems this Deanna's worst film -- and boring. You're entitled to your opinion, of course. I want the world to know that, even in its final truncated, eviscerated form, I found 1948's "Up in Central Park" to be the most charming, fast-paced and completely habit-forming movie I've seen in a long while, offering the eternally beautiful 27-year-old Deanna at her most spunky, cute and adorable best, matched every step of the way by handsome Dick Haymes (perhaps her best leading man) and hysterically amusing Vincent Price. I never wanted it to end.

Indeed it could have and should have been about 30 minutes longer. Yes, the film should have been filmed in Technicolor -- what was it with Universal in their handling of arguably their most important star? They most certainly would not have lasted 100 years without her. However, the black and white photography requires no apology and is stunning and evocative, the direction and performances spot on and, despite unconscionable and highly questionable cuts, the pace is breathtaking. The dances and musical numbers staged by the Broadway production's Helen Tamiris are exciting, inspired and unique (alongside Fosse and DeMille) and help those of us who missed seeing it appreciate what the stage success must have been like.

"Something in the Wind" has long been my favorite of Deanna's films (fond memories of having seen it eight times in a week on Million Dollar Movie). Her vocals and Johnny Green's scoring, conducting and new compositions in the pictures they made together have some amazing chemistry! "Something in the Wind" and now "Up in Central Park." It only took me some 65 years to discover this fantastic gem.
