THE LEFT HAND OF GOD (CD)
Composed by: Victor Young

MINT - SEALED

Victor Young is another woefully underrepresented composer when it comes to soundtrack albums. Our release of his wonderful score for Three Coins in the Fountain took only one small step toward addressing this and we are so happy to take another step with the release of Young’s magnificent score for the Humphrey Bogart film The Left Hand of God (1955). Young’s score is an exceptionally beautiful one. It is exotic and shimmering and truly one of the composer’s finest.

"In The Left Hand Of God," based on the book by William E. Barrett and directed by Edward Dmytryk, Humphrey Bogart stars as Joe Brody, an American pilot who escapes the wrath of a Chinese warlord (Lee J. Cobb) by hiding out in a remote Catholic mission, disguised as a priest. Brody is a natural as a mission leader and restores some order to the feuding villages in the area. He's a little less comfortable, however, in performing priestly rituals, especially as he finds himself drawn to attractive nurse Anne Scott (Gene Tierney). Anne loves him as well and wrestles with the notion of compromising his supposedly chosen vows. Meanwhile, the warlord is closing in and willing to stop at nothing to get Brody back in his clutches.

After fifty years of languishing in the studio archives, Victor Young’s glorious score for "The Left Hand of God" is released here for the very first time.

SYNOPSIS - Humphrey Bogart stars in this improbable tale that marked Gene Tierney's return to the screen after battling mental illness for a number of years. Bogart plays Jim Carmody, an American soldier of fortune who, after crashing his plane in China, takes up with the Chinese warlord General Yang (Lee J. Cobb). Jim becomes Yang's advisor, but after watching one of the General's flunkies brutally kill a priest, Jim decides to leave. Unfortunately, Yang has declared that any deserter will be shot. Disguising himself as the slain priest, Jim sneaks out of the General's headquarters and makes his way to a mountain village where missionaries Beryl (Agnes Moorehead) and David (E.G. Marshall) take him in. Jim still is posing as the priest but his vows of celibacy are challenged when he falls in love with the attractive mission nurse Anne Scott (Gene Tierney). Anne feels ashamed because she is also attracted to him, but Jim writes to the bishop confessing that he is an impostor. At that moment, General Yang arrives, insisting that Jim rejoin his army or else he will burn down the village. 1955
