This two-fer from Dutton Vocalion features a pair of out-of-print LPs by easy listening artist Mantovani: Music from the Films and Film Encores, both originally issued in 1958. These 18 remastered tracks find the conductor/musician/arranger interpreting selections from hit films of the era including My Foolish Heart, The Wizard of Oz, Three Coins in the Fountain, High Noon and Love Is a Many Splendored Thing. This is an enjoyable reissue chosen from Mantovani's numerous London albums.
