When they turned the "love theme" into a song they (not RRB) added a new middle section. The Mancini and Rose recordings reflect that. Stick with the original Bennett composition to appreciate the real beauty of this music.....

The same think happened with Jerome Moross' "Stay With Me" (Main Theme from "The Cardinal").

A slightly different angle, away from the soundtrack, but concerning the film. Funny how we remember some things so seemingly insignificant, yet embedded in memory. When the film opened it played at The Alexandria Theater way out on Geary Blvd. in San Francisco. It was reserved seating, (imagine that), and I was 18 years old, my first experience with 'reserved seating' for a film. SPOILER ALERT for those who skipped History in school: At the film's end when when The Romanov Family is escorted into an empty room, in anticipation of yet another move somewhere safe, the entire audience in the cavernous theater was silent in apprehension. Then the assassins enter and shoot the entire family in cold blood. At this point, some (idiot) in the balcony seats started applauding loudly. His neighbors could be heard shushing-him, then the music swelled up and played the end credits.
THAT, fellow members, is my only other recollection of seeing the film, other than the love of Richard Rodney Bennett's Score to it.

I still have my old Pioneer Special Edition laserdisc with its "music only" track.
Great film and score that I don't hear anyone talk about anymore neither.
It's nice to see some people still do.

Along with Far From The Madding Crowd, N&A is Mr. Bennett's greatest work in the film score area. Was just pondering the same thing last week. Here's hoping someone is working on getting this score released....... it's a beauty!

have always loved his score for Murder on the Orient Express

What is the deal with Bell Records soundtrack lps not on cd? Nicholas and Alexandra, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, Cactus Flower, Brian's Song, etc.

Of all the soundtrack lps never to make it to cd, N & A would be in the top 10, for me.
