Frederick Hollander may not be a familiar name to many film music fans, but he was a superb composer who wrote some terrific scores over the years. He was also a wonderful songwriter, dating back to his work in German cabaret and films – his most iconic and well-known song being the gorgeous “Falling in Love Again” from Josef von Sternberg’s The Blue Angel.

The 1954 Billy Wilder film Sabrina, was an absolute delight with a brilliant cast. Humphrey Bogart and William Holden played the brothers Larrabee, Linus and David, and the wonderful British character actor John Williams played their chauffeur, Thomas Fairchild, whose daughter is the title character, Sabrina. But it was the magical, winsome and altogether lovable Audrey Hepburn who made the film into pure cinematic magic. She’d become an overnight star the year before with Roman Holiday, and Sabrina was the perfect follow-up, cementing her place as one of the fastest-rising stars in Hollywood.

Wilder wanted to use popular tunes throughout Sabrina, and Hollander was the perfect choice to do those adaptations, as well as provide a few original themes. The resulting score was a memorable and charming pastiche – in fact, it’s impossible to think of Sabrina without hearing Hollander’s incredible arrangements of such standards as “My Ideal,” “I Don’t Want to Walk Without You,” “Lover,” “Dream Girl,” “Isn’t It Romantic?” and more. No one did this kind of score better than Hollander, and Sabrina is pure unadulterated movie scoring magic.

Two years later, Paramount released a wonderful Christmas comedy called We’re No Angels, starring Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov and Aldo Ray as the titular angels. Once again, Hollander provides an incredibly appealing score, which has both original and memorable themes along with interpolations such as “Silent Night.”

Frederick Hollander had a really long and fruitful tenure at Paramount, and to fill out this CD, we present surviving cues from several of his film scores for the studio, including The Bride Wore Boots, The Affairs of Susan, The Great McGinty, Remember the Night and Disputed Passage. It is a pleasure to bring an entire album of Hollander music to CD. Though he is perhaps unsung these days, we hope that this potpourri of delightful music will show what an amazing talent he was. - KRITZERLAND
