As Good as it gets

This is an old school Hollywood soundtrack at its best. Dimitri Tiomken was in the top tier of Hollywood composers and this is one of his best. Others would be “High and the Mighty”, “Giant", "Red River” and “The Guns of Navaronne”. What I like about this score are the orchestrations that put you in the orient without being corny. The leitmotif of different themes weaves their way all thru the score with haunting melodies that give you the feeling they were written 100 years ago. This has a rich, vibrant sound perfect for the romantic adventure film that is "55 Days at Peking” You will love it.
