Thanks to their recent Halloween sale I finally picked FSM's Bell, Book and Candle and just heard it for the first time. Marvellous ! A tuneful and lovely music in every aspect; well worth anyone's attention.

Seeing there's no comment on this CD so far, I'm happy to make the first one.

I love that Score - it's so jazzy Hollywood. When I was 12 years old, I went to see it during the Christmas Holidays and sat through it all day long. I think I saw it 4x that day. If you check out my Avatar on the left, you'll notice that I have a weakness for James Stewart-Kim Novak movies from 1958.

No, you can't. How coincidental that the greatest Film ever made (IMO) also has the greatest Film Score ever composed (IMO).

No argument here. Still kinda curious about Bell Book and Candle, Jimmy and Kim made a good couple in Vertigo.

Bell, Book and Candle is a wonderful score - and the film is highly entertaining, too.

I prefer the score to Vertigo - which ranks high on my list of favourite scores - but, for viewing, I prefer the other film. I don't have many scores by George Duning but I enjoy all those that I do have (and, of course, 3:10 To Yuma is a masterpiece).

The animated film 1001 ARABIAN NIGHTS is now available as a made-on-demand DVD from the Sony/Columbia Choice Collection.

I'm quite surprised that you don't have it by now, David. "Bell, Book and Candle" is a genuine classic - must have played it hundreds of times! Get it by all means!!!

I love this album. I don't really care for Arabian Nights, but "Bell Book & Candle" must be in my top 50 scores ever.

I did a custom Pro Tools edit in which ditched the godawful "Jingle Bells" in the main title. It goes directly from percussion, to the ascending string line, to the main melody. Absolutely seamless, and it is now a perfect album.
