Editorial Reviews

The Capra film was a classic, but Ross Hunter's musical remake reeked of the '70s. However, the soundtrack has survived, and it's teeming with disgraceful celebrity singing performances that make William Shatner's Mr. Tambourine Man sound sublime! Includes If I Could Go Back Peter Finch; Reflections Sally Kellerman; Share the Joy Olivia Hussey; Question Me an Answer Bobby Van and children's chorus; Where Knowledge Ends (Faith Begins) Liv Ullmann, and more, including the title song, sung by Shawn Phillips, that actually became a hit!

It's truly rare that a soundtrack as excellently mastered and produced with excellent sound quality is better than or at least as good as the movie it represents.

The movie, a remake of the late 30's version but with a musical take really isn't all that bad if you can get over the fact that the "modern"-sounding nature of the music is an anachronism given the timeframe for the setting of the movie.

People have been quite forgiving of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" for the same "sin" and so I can't understand why they had to pan this movie so badly that you can't even find a DVD version after all these years.

Rather than being overly critical of the film, I took it as light musical entertainment and thought that it was pretty good or that I had seen a lot worse. I thought the music by Bacharach was sublime although the lyrics by David were a little strange to say the least but just for the brilliance of Bacharach alone, I'd say get this cd and by the way, the sound is also very well engineered.

Now if only I can find a decent, LEGAL DVD version of the movie....

... loved this record all my life. I'm in my mid-30's now but fondly remember this from the early Seventies, when my Mum used to play it at my Grandparents house. It evokes some very warm memories... vaguely remember watching the film on TV too but it must have been a very long time ago.

Bacharach's trademark orchestration runs throughout the album, the sudden burst of trumpet on the opening track followed by a crescendo as the strings come in made me fill up with tears... I hadn't heard this album since I was about ten and it seemed as fresh as yesterday!

The instrumental break in 'Share the Joy' as the strings rise to a real high point never fail to make the hairs stand up on my arms, what a lovely lovely piece of music.

The vocal performances too... flawed as they are, are perfect for the songs... they seem more natural and 'human' than some perfect operatic performance. Sally Kellerman's vocal is a great example of this.

I'd always assumed that Peter Finch, Liv Ullmann, Olivia Hussey et al had actually performed the songs but now thanks to the superb sleeve notes I now know better... it shattered my illusions a little but hey... it still SOUNDS as if it's a stage actor trying his best to sing on 'It Might Frighten Her Away' and I LOVE IT!!!

I was slightly worried that listening to this soundtrack again after SO long might be a let down...

I needn't have worried... a superb bit of 'Bacharach & David' for old romantics everywhere.

Here's to us all finding our own Shangri-La out there somewhere.

This film came out in 1973 and I saw it in its original full length version (about 3hours and 15 min.) Executives from Columbia Pictures were there, it was the premeire, and they were groaning and at the intermission fights broke out(verbal) and ushers passed among them and myself and everyone else with soundtrack albums. The executives left the theatre and scaled the albums across Columbus Circle in Boston and I and a few friends retrieved them and had quite a few for free. We returned to the film and I have always loved this crazy redition of Lost Horizon, the miscasting, the terrible sets, the odd ball music for the story, the dubbed Liv Ullmann, the dance routines of Olivia Hussey..all of it. You cannot find a musical like it, or a soundtrack like it. Columbia execs were unimaginative; they should have believed in this film. The next day after this premeire in Boston, New York etc. (simultaneous I suppose) the film was cut, the posters were taken down..there was a ton of material to buy..T Shirts, dolls, posters of all sizes, bath towels with the poster on them, records of the sd tk of course, and small pop up sets of the entire film. It was to be a massive hit..In two days time all of the paraphanalia was removed, and the posters said, Last Two Weeks, and in two weeks the whole thing disappeared.

But many people came to see it..lines of people, and, when they heard it had been cut, they gave up, and in two weeks everyone said farewell to this film.

I have many treasures from that opening nite, and now I have the CD of the sound track. Anyone who loves movie magic or madness has to see and hear this film; it is unique.

Enjoy this soundtrack and get your hands on a DVD ..they are out there!

Wow!! To find sooo many reviews here brought tears to my eyes! I thought my family were the only ones to remember this inspirational movie. I was only 8 yrs.old when I fell in love with this movie musical. I wore out my vinyl album and thought I would never find it again!! I literally cried when I finally was holding the cd in my hands!! Now, if only I could find the movie on video.... Truely uplifting beautiful music!!! Makes me feel like there is hope for this world, especially when I see so many other people that have been "moved" by this musical!! WHERE CAN I GET THE VIDEO!!!?
