UNSEALED - NEAR MINT-

For the first time ever, Alex North’s brilliant score to William Wyler’s 1961 film of Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour comes to CD. One of three scores written directly after Spartacus, The Children’s Hour is classic North.

Over the years, other labels had inquired about The Children’s Hour – but no tapes existed in the MGM vaults. Thankfully, North had kept a copy of this score in his archives, which are housed at the Margaret Herrick Library, and through their good auspices the tape was made available to us and it is that tape which was used for this CD. We had both a copy of the chosen takes from the recording session, and also a tape North had put together for a soundtrack release that obviously never happened. We used his sequencing and track titles and both tapes were used to create the CD master. The album contains North’s original main and end title music, both of which, at some point, were rescored, and we’ve included the rescored versions, as well. It’s fascinating to hear the two approaches to the main title – North’s original works beautifully and times out perfectly with Wyler’s images, while the rescored version works well, albeit in a completely different way, setting a completely different mood. We’ve also included two other bonus tracks, a brief source music cue, and one cue with an alternate ending. The sound is mono and very crisp.
