I remember buying the old LP because it was Oscar Peterson's jazz AND from a film - my two loves. That was a great LP, but I knew at the time that it wouldn't really fit into any film in a conventional way. It was a few years later that I caught up with the movie - and, as I imagined, there was nothing of the Peterson tracks there. It didn't bother me at all. I had a great Oscar Peterson LP, and I'd seen a great film. Two separate entities. Things would have been different if I'd seen the film first and then bought the LP because I liked the score...

So, literally, there isn't anything on the LP that shows up in the film in any sort of manner?

You should also bear in mind that Mr. Wannberg was is credited on this film as MUSIC ARRANGER and CONDUCTOR...

Also I don't think Oscar Peterson has done anything like this before or since and that what you hear on the album is very different then what is heard in the film.

Figures. Some of those incidences where a musician was hired for name value (I mean, OP is a BIG name in jazz), and a real composer had to do the actual work.

Vividly remember the film. Christopher Plummer's performance scared the hell out of me when I saw this as a young man.

Can't be sure Onya, but I think that the Peterson tracks turn up in the film as source cues in most cases.
