Miklos Rozsa – Sodom and Gomorrah (Overture)
Director Robert Aldrich has 37 credits to his name and some impressive titles among them; Vera Cruz, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte (which made my favourite ten list for 1964), The Dirty Dozen and an intriguing looking title I just learned about recently via My Kind of Story; The Killing of Sister George. Why do I bring up Mr. Aldrich you ask? He directed the 1962 biblical epic Sodom and Gomorrah for which I have put together a slideshow. But a biblical epic Goregirl? What the hell? The hell is I own the compiliation The Epic Film Music of Miklos Rozsa! It is epic alright! Every song on that thing is 5 minutes or longer! You need a lot of pictures to fill a five minute slideshow! You will be getting no screaming, adjective-filled endorsement of Sodom and Gomorrah from I. I did however enjoy the costumes and sets. I also liked Stanley Baker and Anouk Aimée lots and of course the grand music of Mr. Rozsa.
