late '20s, sound revolutionized the motion picture - first the
stars talking, then singing, and gradually background music
became paramount in assisting the Director to enrich and
vitalize the story being filmed.
Today, the composer-conductor entrusted with creating the
musical score for a picture is screened as carefully for his
assignment as the Star or the Director. And so, when selecting a
composer for "McLINTOCK" - a
fast moving, action-packed, comedy, played against a Western
background, it was just logic that lead us to
Frank DeVol. Actor,
comedian, musician, his many-faceted talents blended perfectly
with the juxtapositioned hi-jinks of our script.
After you see the picture and listen to this album, I think
you'll share our tremendous appreciation of Frank's contribution
By Dunham collaborated with DeVol
on the words for "Love in the Country" and also wrote the words
and music for the equally delightful "Just Right for Me."
In their first recording effort, Patrick Wayne, Stefanie Powers,
and Jerry Van Dyke give the vocals such harmonious freshness
that we're planning a quick repeat for the group.
