THE EGYPTIAN Original Movie Soundtrack LP Record in Mint Pristine Like New Condition with original Shrinkwrap. Alfred Newman and Bernard Herrmann Composers , conducting The Hollywood Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Originally released in 1954 in Mono on Decca Records : DL7-9014 - this is the original remastered re-issue in STEREO on MCA Records released in 1977 : MCA -2029 ( 7-3806). The Egyptian has gone down in history as one of the more problematic 'sand and sandal' epics of the 1950s. Marlon Brando took a pass and the producers recast wooden Edmund Purdom in the lead. The film is stolen by Peter Ustinov (as the servant), with enjoyable support from Jean Simmons, the hammy Victor Mature, and Gene Tierney (on the edge of her nervous breakdown). But the restored music score on this CD shows the very best of the two collaborators: Alfred Newman and Bernard Herrmann. The mixture of their styles (Herrmann was brought on board to fill out the score) creates an amazing musical narrative. Film buffs and classical music lovers should rejoice at this lushly-played and masterfully re-mastered LP. The Vinyl on the Original LP is Pristine Like New with a brilliant sheen , as is the Pristine Album Jacket still with it's original Shrinkwrap and original mint inner record sleeve.
