I am not a great fan of Franz Waxman.  However, along with Rózsa, Herrmann, Steiner and Korngold he is considered one of the greats of Hollywood's Golden Age.

I do enjoy his scores for Rebecca, Sunset Boulevard, Peyton Place, My Cousin Rachel and The Spirit of St. Louis .

I have limited my CD purchases this year to 23.  The year began with my purchasing Intrada's CD of Copland's The Red Pony and The Heiress.  It ends with my purchasing Intrada's The Franz Waxman Collection.  I have seen at least 5 of the films on the Collection and none of the scores made a lasting, or particularly favourable, impression.  Nonetheless, this is a CD release that is far too tempting for me to ignore and I look forward to it dropping through my letter box, hopefully without the intervention of HMRC requiring me to pay tax to get it released from the Post Office.
