Wuthering Heights - Michel Legrand

A switch from the normal drive-in fare for American International Pictures, this glossy 1970 version of the Emily Bronte novel was directed by Robert Fuest (The Abominable Dr. Phibes) and starred Timothy Dalton and Anna Calder-Marshall. Unfortunately its roadshow prestige intentions fell by the wayside, and the film is barely remembered now. Likewise, the haunting Michel Legrand score has also fallen into oblivion and deserves rediscovery. The vinyl release from AIR (American International Records) also includes a vocal version of the main theme ("I Was Born in Love with You") by the Mike Curb Congregation not featured in the actual film.

Thanks for this soundtrack by Legrand. I've been looking for as much of his film work as I can find.

I'm really getting into this score. There's something about that "I Was Born In Love With You" that gets under your skin. Great stuff!
