Christina Crawford's controversial memoir about the abuse she suffered at the
hands of mother Joan Crawford spawned an even more controversial movie starring
Faye Dunaway as the Hollywood diva. Panned by many, Mommie Dearest won (?) an
award for the worst movie of the '90s, and to this day is loved/loathed for
being an over-the-top camp cult classic. But one aspect of the movie was
universally hailed: Henry Mancini's elegant score. Fashioned to recreate the
classic film themes from '40s and '50s dramas by such composers as Bernard
Herrmann, Alex North, and Elmer Bernstein, Mancini's work is a model of
restraint, balancing passion and pathos while commenting and adding texture to
the emotional extremes being displayed on screen. As always, Mancini's command
of orchestral color is masterful, and while none of the melodies here are quite
as scene-stealing as, say, his work on Days of Wine and Roses among his
darker-themed movies, he does save quite a punch for last with the penultimate
"No More Pain" track. For this, the FIRST-EVER VINYL RELEASE of this classic
score, Real Gone Music has designed a gorgeous gatefold cover featuring
Limited edition of 1200 in very, very clean white vinyl!
