Format: Audio CD
I first bought this classic Franz Waxman film score on LP many years ago and wore the record out. The CD enhances my memories of the score, a score featuring "flying" themes, of course appropriate to Charles Linbergh's history-making flight to Paris. Yet this score literally soars past many scores of its day, with music that lifts the human spirit as much as the flimsy plane that crossed the cold Atlantic. Waxman captures the poetry of flight, the relationship between man and nature, man in rapture in the endless air. The score has themes of welcome humor, Irish themes, French quotes, and even slapstick themes. Waxman did many other scores, Rear Window for Hitchcock (an excellent score also) but none better or more beautiful than Spirit of St. Louis. This is what great film music can do-some bombastic scores can ruin a movie but a score like this lifts the film into another area, one where the story, the visuals, and music come together to form art you can't get any other way. There is a replica of Linbergh's plane here in San Diego and every time I see it I not only admire its silver beauty but think of Franz Waxman's light, uplifting music score. I highly recommend it.
