Max Steiner: Marjorie Morningstar - Soundtrack (LP)
(RCA) 14 tracks
Marjorie Morningstar, that big-eyed but stubborn little Upper West Sider who followed Captain Queeg in Herman Wouk's Gal-Lie of fictional creations, was now really brought to life by Warner Bros., with Natalie Wood as Marjorie and Gene Kelly as the elusive object of her romantic dreams, Noel Airman. This is a story of a special world, faithfully and lovingly interpreted, but also a story of universal values and applications. To write the song on the subject, the expert team of Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster was called in. To write the score, producer Milton Sperling chose the respected Max Steiner.
He chose a composer who had almost fifty pictures in his honour. Steiner, born in Vienna, studied at the Imperial Academy and wrote and conducted his first operetta at the age of fourteen. In 1904 he went to London, where he conducted in various theatres for seven years. Then came a stay at the Alhambra in Paris, where Florenz Ziegfeld heard him and persuaded him to come to America to make several follies. Hollywood was the inevitable next step; he went there in 1929. He was awarded by the King of Belgium and received more European awards than he can remember.
