World premiere release of Michael Small soundtrack for Bob Rafelson filming of noir masterpiece by writer James M. Cain, filmed earlier by Tay Garnett in 1946. 1981 update features Jack Nicholson, Jessica Lange as two lovers on path to murder, betrayal. Michael Small scores for full orchestra, emphasizes smoky film noir elements with dark motifs that slide in, then out, creating tension, finally exploding in violence. In balance is rich, thickly-scored love theme that surges with passion yet plays in minor, keeping pace with sobering mood of complex story. Intrada presents complete score from original 1/2" 3-channel stereo masters, includes score in picture sequence plus several extras recorded by composer at sessions with modest changes for never-materialized album. Released courtesy of Warner Bros., lovingly produced by Lukas Kendall, Neil S. Bulk. Michael Small conducts
