Original Soundtrack - The Lost Weekend / The Night Of The Hunter
The Lost Weekend and The Night of The Hunter are important milestones in the history of American Cinema. Two powerful and disturbing films brilliantly acted and directed with great intensity and style. The Lost Weekend first to portray the devastating effects of alcoholism. Ray Milland gives the finest performance of his career and the film was the best of 1945 picking up five oscars. The soundtrack (the first to deploy the use of the theramin) was composed by the great Hungarian Miklos Rozsa. Throughout, Rozsa's music is punctuated by the use of the theremin which adds to the disturbed, hallucinogenic mood of the film and get's across Milland¹s endless yearning for a drink. The Night of the Hunter, an outstandingly original fairytale nightmare features a memorable, chilling performance from Robert Mitchum. Far ahead of it¹s time, the film and is now regarded as one of the best two or three movies made in America in the fifties. The soundtrack of The Night of the Hunter integrates the film's music with a reading by Charles Laughton of the story, beautifully written for the recording itself. The result is magical and not a little unsettling.
