"When one considers the great, classic film score composers, Franz Waxman easily makes the short list. In seeking to describe his film music, the words "spacious", "expansive", and "dramatic" come to mind, the qualites that enable a film score to give added life and depth to the film itself. Waxman's scores are of consistently high quality, and, in fact, on occasion, his music is better than the film it accompanies.The last selection on this CD is a suite from the film, The Silver Chalice. This was an epic film, it was a major cast film, it was a bad film. It marked Paul Newman's film debut, and there's a story that he was so embarrassed by just how bad the film was, that he took out an ad in the trade pepers, urging his friends not to see the film. But do listen to the music."
