First performed as a stage play on Broadway in 1954, it was ideal material for A Hollywood re-working. Perfectly cast with James Stuart and Kim Novak, it was loaded with hidden sub-plots.

Ostensibly a story of modern-day witchcraft in a highly-stylised New York City at Christmas, those “in the know” tapped their noses in recognition of the (then) unspoken subject of LGBT.

A tremendous orchestral score by George Duning (recorded in Germany) and featuring the Brothers Candoli, this beautifully remastered edition has a bonus track of Phillippe Clay in the famous nightclub scene performing a seldom-heard composition by Charles Aznavour.

Packed with dense explanatory notes, this is now re-released by us due to public demand.
