THE WORLD OF SUZIE WONG plus THE EDDY DUCHIN STORY plus PICNIC
3 COMPLETE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACKS !
American film composer George Duning (1908-2000) was the author of many highly celebrated scores. This release compiles three of this most famous soundtracks in their entireties: those of the films "The World of Suzie Wong" (1960), directed by Richard Quine and featuring William Holden; "The Eddy Duchin Story" (1956), directed by George Sidney and starring Tyrone Power and Kim Novak; and "Picnic" (1955), directed by Joshua Logan and featuring William Holden
