THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN (CD)
Composed by: Victor Young

SEALED

The score displays Victor Young's skills as both a composer and an arranger. But despite Young being himself a superlative songwriter, the film’s producer instead called up the successful songwriting team of Sammy Kahn and Jule Styne and allowed them one day to come up with a strong pop song based on the title "Three Coins in the Fountain." They delivered a classic and it was incorporated into Young’s own score.

Adapted by playwright John Patrick from a novel by famed globetrotter/filmmaker John H. Secondari, "Three Coins in the Fountain" offers the splendors of Rome in Technicolor, CinemaScope and Stereophonic Sounds. For all its lovely picture-postcard images, the film is at base a reworking of 20th Century-Fox' favorite plotline: three pretty girls on the prowl for husbands. The three lovelies, who toss their coins in the Trevi fountain and wish for romance, include Dorothy McGuire, Jean Peters and Maggie McNamara. Before the film is over, McGuire has won over her icy employer Clifton Webb; Peters has "tamed" roving-eyed Rossano Brazzi; and McNamara finds happiness with prince Louis Jourdan. "Three Coins in the Fountain" won two Academy Awards: "Best Color Cinematography" (Milton Krasner), and "Best Song" (written by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen, and sung in the pre-credits sequence by an uncredited Frank Sinatra). The film was remade in 1965 as The Pleasure Seekers. 1954
