One of the most important films of the '50s, Sweet Smell of Success boasts two soundtracks: The first was one of the great Jazz scores written and performed by the Chico Hamilton Quintet; the other, a furious orchestral score by the masterful Elmer Bernstein. These albums were released separately in 1957 but are combined here on a single CD in digital format for the first time. Sweet Smell of Success is memorable for the vicious performances of Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis and it's uniquely nasty view of the tough underbelly of New York fifty years ago. El. 2008.
