NEAR MINT - UNSEALED - ONLY ONE AVAILABLE

World premiere of original soundtrack to 20th Century-Fox biblical tale about David, King of Israel and his love for Bathsheba, starring Gregory Peck, Susan Hayward. 1951 movie was Fox's initial entry in biblical-spectacular trend of late 1940s, early ’50s. No composer was more sensitive at scoring films with religious subject matter than Alfred Newman (THE ROBE, SONG OF BERNADETTE, THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD.) He provides David and Bathsheba with sumptuous music for their love story, colorful music for period locales they lived in, highlights with exciting music for numerous battles and powerful music for the famous David and Goliath sequence. Everything's capped by one of Newman's most impressive finales, a dynamic setting of "The Twenty-Third Psalm" for combined chorus, orchestra. Nearly an hour premieres in mono, as presented for the film, mastered from original optical tracks and acetate reference discs maintained in the Fox vaults. Notes by Newman authority Jon Burlingame offer insight to production, background on scoring. CD concludes with bonus stereo mix of finale from surviving multi-channel session elements made during final combined orchestra, chorus session. Alfred Newman conducts.

SYNOPSIS - "David and Bathsheba" is a respectable, slightly stodgy cinemazation of the Old Testament story. King David (Gregory Peck), much beloved by the subjects and a war hero of long standing, falls victim to the sins of the flesh when he falls in love with Bathsheba (Susan Hayward), the wife of Uriah (Kieron Moore), one of David's most trusted soldiers. His downfall begins when David orders Uriah into a suicidal battle, knowing that this will clear the way for his relationship with Bathsheba. His infatuation leads him to neglect his kingdom and his people, and invokes the wrath of God. Only after his land has been devastated by God's hand does David offer atonement. The film's lavish production values compensate ever so slightly for the long-winded script. David and Bathsheba was the last major "flat-screen" Biblical epic; it was filmed in 1951 B.C. - Before Cinemascope.
