Movie themes, along with songs from Broadway, have long been fodder for jazz musicians. This United Artists LP features Jerome Richardson leading his working quintet during a live engagement, though the venue is unidentified. The extended workout of Duke Jordan's "No Problem" (from the film Les Liaisons Dangereuses) showcases Richardson's robust baritone sax and Les Spann on flute, with the leader adding a tag at the end on piccolo. Richardson switches to tenor sax and Spann to guitar for a rather brisk arrangement of "Moon River." "Tonight" (from West Side Story) is a bit unusual in that it features both musicians on flute.
A workman is accidentally sent into outer space, where he meets an alien that can make himself invisible. They return to Earth in the year 2447. Complications ensue.
James Mason and John Mills star in this comedy-drama about a tough colonel and a refined captain who clashed during the war, and continue their personal battle in peace-time Tahiti.
The action of this intellectual drama takes place in the 1960s. Two young nuclear scientists – the possessed experimentator Gusev and the skeptical theoretician-physicist Kulikov – are old friends, both in love with the same girl, Lyolia. In the course of his scientific experiments, Gusev gets a possibly fatal dose of radiation. Despite the doctors’ warnings of life-threatening danger, the scientist wouldn’t stop his quest for the truth, although his days may be numbered… Starring in the principal roles were the most prominent Russian actors Innokenty Smoktunovsky and Alexei Batalov.
