Hi Ginger...I went to the website and heard it. I guess it played all...not sure. It was the 'opening music' while the cast and credits would have been shown. Then it ended...just as it goes into, that beautiful and haunting...love theme..music from the film.
I think that love theme music score is one of the most beautiful...ever...in a film. Sure wish I had a c/d of the entire score from this film.
I remember seeing the original sheet music for the love theme, that was in the store way back in 1962 and wished I had picked it up at the time. I went back to get it a few days later and...of course, it was gone.
It had a beautiful picture of Susan and Heston on the cover of the sheet music. 'ONE THAT GOT AWAY'...BUT..I
will always love this..love theme.
I wish it had been given words. I compare it to the themes like..."LAURA", "INVITATION", "RUBY' (from the film RUBY GENTRY), 'MY FOOLISH HEART" and "RAINTREE COUNTY".
There ARE words to the theme. I have the sheet music in a book called Serenade to the Stars of Hollywood by Alfred Newman. The song is called My Love for You and the words are beautiful.
My love for you, as warm as May, will grow and grow with ev'ry passing day.
Come sun or rain, come smiles or tears, my love for you will see us through the years.
I speak your name in ev'ry pray'r my lips impart
That you will always be first lady of my heart.
And may these eyes but never see my love for you without your love for me.
And where we are, our dreams will blend from here to far beyond the journey's end.
This book's cover is on Amazon, but the book is not available. I would love to make this song available to any of you who would like a copy. I can either scan it or fax it somewhere. Just let me know. The music from David and Bathsheba and Ava Gardner's music from Snows of Kilimanjaro are also in the book along with the wonderful waltz We Meet Again from Desiree. I have lots of sheet music, but this is one of my favorites!
Libby...so sorry that I never read your response until today..Oct. 5th. I would love to get a copy of the sheet music. I would have to use a friend's fax machine, so if you could email me at..firstname.lastname@example.org...then I could get back to you with his fax number.
Thank you so very much..I would love to have this!
