Kritzerland is pleased to present a new world premiere limited edition soundtrack CD:

ALL IN A NIGHT’S WORK
Music Composed and Conducted by Andre Previn

Once upon a time in a land called Hollywood, major studios churned out wonderful, frothy, fizzy romantic comedies, one after another. In 1961, Shirley MacLaine was riding high on the success of The Apartment and Dean Martin had become a real leading man after the team of Martin and Lewis had broken up. They’d already appeared together in Vincente Minnelli’s Some Came Running and Paramount’s production of Career, and because both were terrific comic actors, it was a natural to pair them up in Paramount’s All in a Night’s Work.

All in a Night’s Work was given the lavish, glossy Paramount treatment – everything was top-of-the line – the director was Joseph Anthony (The Rainmaker, The Matchmaker, Career), and the bubbly screenplay was by Edmund Beloin (Visit to a Small Planet, The Sad Sack, Don’t Give Up the Ship), Maurice Richlin (Pillow Talk, Operation Petticoat, Soldier in the Rain, and the classic The Pink Panther), and Sidney Sheldon (Billy Rose’s Jumbo, Pardners). And, in addition to the two leads, a stellar supporting cast – Cliff Robertson, Jack Weston, Charlie Ruggles, Norma Crane, Jerome Cowan, and Gale Gordon.

The plot kicks off in high style when a mysterious woman is seen running from a ritzy Palm Beach hotel room, wearing only a bath towel and not a very large one at that. Since the hotel room’s guest, a New York publishing baron, is found dead in bed, the question is who was that lady and was that lady his mistress? Complications, misunderstandings, mink coats, fancy nightclubs, and, of course, love and a happy ending, and all in glorious Technicolor, set to the romantic, propulsive, and phenomenal music of André Previn.

The main title sets the tone – an upbeat, dynamic, and colorful showpiece for orchestra. That theme recurs again, but it’s the delicious and beautiful love theme that gets most of the attention, in a large number of guises – it’s instantly memorable and works wonderfully throughout the film – as underscore for romance, shopping, cocktails, dinner and dancing, and yes, more romancing, the kind of romance that only happens in the movies with beautiful music underscoring everything. There are other equally excellent themes, and the score is just a constant delight of melody and inspiration.

All in a Night’s Work was transferred from the original session masters housed in the Paramount vaults. The tapes were in excellent condition and in stereo save for two cues that only existed in mono. The first of those is presented in sequence (track two), and the last, the complete finale, is presented in the bonus tracks section, since we had a shorter version of the finale in stereo.

All in a Night’s Work is limited to 1000 copies only. The price is $19.98, plus shipping.

CD will ship the last week of July – however, never fear, preorders placed directly through Kritzerland usually ship one to five weeks earlier (we’ve been averaging four weeks early). To place an order, see the cover, or hear audio samples, just visit www.kritzerland.com.

Samples are fine and I will get it later.
But I have problems on job and probably I will have big financial problems.
So hope that this will not sold out in next 2 months frown

It was the Kritzerland release of Two for the Seesaw that truly focused my attention on André Previn's film scores, for which I am extremely grateful. I will definitely be picking this up.

In my experience, Kritzerland has excellent customer service. Why don't you ask Bruce to reserve a copy for you? He is usually very understanding of such things.

I will ask Bruce about this if in next 2-3 days he will say 'less than 100 copies' wink

There's always more room for Previn in my collection. Great release of a film & score I was totally unfamiliar with!

And the timing is great as the AFI just honored Shirley Maclaine.

Definitely ordered!! Thank you, Bruce, for your continuing spelunking through stuido vaults and coming up with these gems. Wouldn't it be great if the tapes to CAREER and other Dino movies -- especially the Matt Helm series -- would show up too.

Excellent release. Ordered immediately. Anyone with any doubts about this one should check out the clip for the sparkling Main Title.

This seems to be Previn's only score for a Paramount film, although he did write the title song for THE SWINGER (1966) and contributed a song to PAINT YOUR WAGON (1969).

He just needs to hit 'Shift' while pressing '1' to make it a '!'.

Looks like a great release, Bruce - I'll have to check out the samples.

Make that four songs with Alan Jay Lerner for "Paint Your Wagon". They were "The First Thing You Know", "A Million Miles Away From The Door", "Best Things", and "Gold Fever".

I don't normally get excited by Previn but the samples are indeed very nice as people have mentioned. This release seems to be light on the jazzy Previn side and thus is pure delightful music. Will order!!

It's the kind of score that Previn did so beautifully and it really sparkles as a listening experience (and in the film it sparkles, too). No one knows how to write this kind of score anymore.

The sound here is the perfect example of why I love film scores so much, especially from that period. And they really don't make em like that anymore!
