La-La Land Records and 20th Century Fox proudly presents the remastered and expanded 2-CD release of legendary composer Alfred Newman's (A CERTAIN SMILE, ALL ABOUT EVE, THE EGYPTIAN, AIRPORT) original score to the 20th Century Fox 1953 psychological biblical epic THE ROBE, starring Richard Burton, Jean Simmons and Victor Mature, and directed by Henry Koster. A rich, complex and important work in the Newman cannon, this powerful score injects heart into this film's large canvas while masterfully propelling its drama and spectacle. Studio head Darryl Zanuck said it best at the time, "I wish I could find some way to tell you that this is the greatest score ever written without sounding like the publicity department - but it is." Produced by Nick Redman, restored by Mike Matessino and mastered by Daniel Hersch, this remastered and expanded 2-CD SET sounds magnificent, is slightly longer than previous releases and features insightful liner notes from writer Julie Kirgo.
