Composed by: Jerry Goldsmith

The release of Jerry Goldsmith’s score for George Cukor’s 1969 film "Justine" soundtrack album brought about an entirely new recording of the music. For the new recording, the composer relocated to London and even composed a couple of new pieces which would be exclusive to the album. Other than this, the rethinking of the score for LP presentation consisted largely of resequencing the music and retitling some of the film’s cues.

But along with the album recording, this CD presents, for the first time anywhere, the original soundtrack recording from the film. The ultimate and last word on Jerry Goldsmith’s Justine is now available as a very special deluxe edition from the Varèse Sarabande CD Club.

SYNOPSIS - "Justine" (Anouk Aimee) is a Jewish prostitute living in Egypt who manages to sleep her way to the top. Marrying a financial minister, Justine works her way up from her beginnings as a hooker, but continues to use her sexual allure as a tool to win her and her husband's ends. Along the way, she helps the Jews fight for their own homeland against the British and Arabs. The story is told from the perspective of the English nobleman Darley (Michael York), who first meets the temptress in 1938. The Jews in Egypt are continually pressured by the Moslem majority, who also persecute local Coptic Christians. Justine helps both Christians and Jews in Alexandria receive fair treatment despite religious and racial prejudice. Dirk Bogarde and Anna Karina also star in this story tinged with adultery, incest, homosexuality and religious and nationalistic fervor. This story is based on the novel "Justine," one of four which comprise the Alexandria Quartet, by British diplomat and novelist Lawrence Durrell. 1969
