World premiere CD release of early-ish Georges Delerue soundtrack for France production with British, American credentials: John Guillerman directs, Melvyn Douglas, Dean Stockwell, Patricia Gozzi star. Intense tale melds romance, thrills, supernatural overtones that inspire Delerue to write score balancing gorgeous main theme, aggressive drama, brittle action.
