Laura

Back to the Eurosexy again, this time with controversial British photographer-turned-director David Hamilton, creator of such nymphet classics as Bilitis and Tender Cousins. One of his better films, 1979's Laura, follows the efforts of aging sculptor James Mitchell to woo his old flame, Maud Adams, into letting him do a sculpture of her teen-ballerina daughter, Laura (future New World starlet Dawn Dunlap). French softcore music was all the rage at the time thanks to pop star Pierre Bachelet's work on Story of O and Emmanuelle, so Swiss-born disco star Patrick Juvet decided to take a crack at it with this film and turned out a memorable, lyrical score; in particular, "La Theme de la Statue" ranks with the best of the period. Unfortunately the hard-partying rock lifestyle took its toll on Juvet soon after, sending him into a tailspan until his eventual comeback in the 1990s.

Glad you like it! Unlike some other French singers, Juvet's mostly unknown in the U.S. It's a shame he didn't write more film music, that's for sure.
