I just got this one and it is just too much fun. It's like a musical without the lyrics.

The last track is an interesting introduction into how arrangers write for a vocal part.

And track 10 is now up next to Previn's "Fashion Show" (from the North by Northwest soundtrack) on my list of favorite music to listen while trying on clothes. big grin

What is that photo? Does that moment even exist in the film? It's been quite a while since I've seen it, but I don't recall them all singing, which they are obviously doing in that photo.

I think we've had this conversation before?
This is one of the original UK FOH (Lobby) cards. In the movie, we get a close up of Bacall and Mitchell as he's reeling off a list of all he owns.....oil wells, cattle, the Brookman building,etc, whilst off camera we hear the others going "Oh Yeah!"..."Of Course",etc.

I think that this is the moment that the stills photographer has captured here, and they are not singing at all.


A belated comment on the still: Yes, they were all saying "Ohhhh, sure....uh-huh....yes-s-s-s-s..." in reaction to his claims. Of course, those who've seen the film know that when it finally occurs to the three women that he's telling the truth, they all faint and fall of their stools! The men then toast their wives!

I think that every 364 days, I'll post how much I like this cd, until it is out of stock (it's "low-quantity" now!). big grin

This was the first CinemaScope movie I saw (at Loews State in Times Square). I remember being blown away by the stereo sound of the orchestra in the first few minutes of the movie. I saw The Robe few weeks later. I miss the main title sequences of films of years ago. I'm going to see Lawrence of Arabia tomorrow night on an IMAX screen down here in Fla. I hope they include overture, entr'acte & exit music. The Cinemark chain of theaters usually does.
