AllMusic Review by

Though it captures only a small handful of his work, Elmer Bernstein: Movie and TV Themes finds the famed film and television composer conducting a set of classic material, including music from Walk on the Wild Side, Sweet Smell of Success, and The Man with the Golden Arm. Recorded in 1962 with a decade of scores and a building list of Oscar nominations under his belt, the album only scratches the surface of Bernstein's tremendous body of work, but nonetheless makes for a swingin' introduction to the prolific composer's impressive filmography.
