Wow! Exciting Henry Mancini score finally gets released! 1981 action-filled Disney comicbook superhero tale directed by Charles Jarrott, starring Michael Crawford, Oliver Reed, Barbara Carrera inspires Henry Mancini to write one of his most exciting, energetic scores of his career. Mancini anchors with robust "Condorman" theme (including fun chorus), then tackles profuse action scenes with dynamic, propulsive action material for full orchestra. Powerful trombone lines, aggressive rhythms, fanfares for trumpets all get spotlight! Music for killer Morovich is especially aggressive. In contrast, Mancini creates one of his gentlest, most heartfelt pretty themes for Natalia, given particular prominence in beautifully-scored "Free Single Woman".

5/5 Jealous... this was one of my favorite films back in 1981, from the trailer to the film... I don't remember the score, I do know that I loved it. Also that crazy guy Michael Crawford was the lead, he went off to do so many great things. This is another out of this world release from the ever popular Intrada label... it's limited so what are you waiting for?

I remember that movie, but mainly from the novelization. The scene when the car breaks out of the truck is my favorite. Mancini did some amazing film scores.
