Doxy present a reissue of Elmer Bernstein’s soundtrack for To Kill A Mockingbird. The film, directed by Robert Mulligan, was originally released in 1962. Between 1951 and 2002, Elmer Bernstein composed over 200 scores for films and TV programs. Among the great film scores he composed from 1955 to 1965 – including 1960’s The Magnificent Seven, 1963’s The Great Escape (DOC 105LP), and 1956’s The Ten Commandments – the one Bernstein picked as his favorite was To Kill A Mockingbird (1962). This has one of the simplest and most delicate film scores ever composed. The opening main title features a delicate waltz tempo mixed with a more expansive theme which beautifully sets the mood for this drama of innocent childhood and racial prejudice. This is a masterpiece of subtle film scoring and one of the greatest from the past sixty years.
