Format: Audio CD
Adapted from his little known violin concerto, Rozsa has composed quite possibly the most beautiful film score EVER!!! Because Wilder wrote his Holmes to be modest, introspective and disillusioned, he was wise not to demonstrate this with heavy exposition but instead with Rozsa's sublime music which creates the emotional landscape of the movie. Billy always had incredible musical instincts with regard to his story telling, (see also, Double Indemnity, The Apartment and Kiss me Stupid.) And I can't help but get that gut wrenching feeling when I hear the melancholic refrain halfway through the opening titles. It reminds me of all the "lost loves" in my own life. Sherlock's humanity in Wilder's masterpiece comes from the exploration of his emotional vulnerability especially with regard to women. This music allows us to undertstand Wilder's delicate investigation by using a single violin as the instrumental alter ego of Sherlock himself. I simply can't recommend this rare, wonderful recording highly enough. Just go now, leave and buy it!!!

I love the movie, which is a somewhat neglected Billy Wilder classic, so I was happy to come across this Collector's Edition CD that was released in 2007, the centennary year of the birth of composer Miklos Rozsa.

The CD sound quality is excellent. It is 78 minutes long and contains 23 tracks, some of which were created for scenes that were eventually edited from the final production movie release. The music style is Classical and the tracks do not contain dialog from the actors, as some movie soundtracks do. That is in no way a negative; I simply wanted to point this out in case anyone would like to know.

The CD comes with a 26 page color booklet containing photos from the movie and Miklos Rozsa, and extensive information about both. This certainly makes a very nice Collector's package and gift for anyone who enjoyed the movie.

A wonderful recording of this neglected masterpiece.
I live in hope that the missing footage from Billy Wilder's movie will come to light and that the film will be restored. Even in its truncated state the film is a firm favourite of mine and Miklos Rozsa's music is just gorgeous and is beautifully played here.

This has been my favourite film of all time since my father introduced me to it when I was about 11 years old. The plot is very clever, the dialogue is witty and remarkable, the underlying theme is dark and the music score is astonishing!
It's only when you play this CD you can actually get a sense how every note, key change and each instrument is constructed to each and every movement we see on screen!
If you love this film then you can't possibly be a true fan if you don't own a copy of this masterpiece.
