A weekend doddle before I start the big book, as I told my beloved John Wilson in an earlier posting.
The first day I went to work for Mamoulian, he asked me outright if I knew any of his movies. I told him yes, this one. Which all of you probably know like I do, from TV. (Now on Prime—catch it before they yank it.) Find his remarks in my memoir, Mamoulian In Mind, which should be finished and up on Amazon sometime next year.Above: The suite of Alfred Newman’s Oscar-nominated score, orchestrated by Hugo Friedhofer.
