1000 Edition.

HARDLY WORKING tells the story of Bo Hooper, a circus clown who loses his job when the circus closes down and has the worst luck ever trying to hold down a job. Seen as a comeback film after an absence of nearly a decade, HARDLY WORKING gave Lewis the opportunity to debut his style of slapstick and sentimental comedy for a new generation of moviegoers.

Morton Stevens was hired by Jerry Lewis to score the film and while he provided slightly comic or light-hearted music to accompany some of the film’s comedic set pieces, he avoided writing specific comedy music and chose to focus the score’s arc on the dramatic elements of the story. Steven’s central theme for Bo, apart from its introduction early in the film, is thoroughly heartfelt and captures the essence of the character. Lewis was so pleased with the score that he even took to the podium during one of the sessions and conducted the orchestra during a couple of cues.

BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents the world premiere soundtrack release of HARDLY WORKING, featuring music composed and conducted by Morton Stevens, including the the complete orchestral score, along with the source music composed for the film as bonus tracks, mastered by James Nelson of Digital Outland. The booklet contains liner notes written by noted author Randall D. Larson and includes comments from producer Igo Kantor.
