John Barry - Follow Me (1972 (or 1971) Film) Soundtrack

I love this soundtrack. The main title has a haunting melody. When I used to watch this movie (in America it was known as 'The Public Eye'), I always loved the music, but this was long before I ever bought soundtracks, so I never imagined getting the music to the film. It was a real treat when I eventually got it. If you've ever seen the picture, the melody stays with you (as I suppose a lot of John Barry themes do). It may not have been the best movie in the world, but it had its own quirky charm.

The comedy starred Topol as a private detective hired by Michael Jayston. Jayston's character suspects that his wife, played by Mia Farrow, is cheating on him, and as Topol follows her around the city, they develop an odd sort of relationship. The theme is bittersweet and it perfectly captures the poignancy of the characters.

Hearing this score also reminds me of a time when you could watch these movies on TV (or in revival theaters). I don't think I've seen this movie in 20 years. Has anybody out there seen this movie on their local TV station (or even cable) lately? Let me know because I'd be curious to know if they're showing it anywhere. Maybe it's just here that they only show movies made in the last 5 years or so. Oh, well.

I got this a long time ago through p2p and it came with cover scans that don't match the track listing, but I've included them anyway. The actual track listing matches both the LP and bootleg CD versions, but I don't know which this is. All the music appears to be the same, but the scanned covers have a different track order. Here are those covers:

Track List:

Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 01 - Main Title (Main Title Theme - Vocal)

thanks a lot for this OST - never seen elsewhere ! Much harder today to complete my John Barry discography...

Be Seeing You !
Hi number06!

Thanks for the kind words. I've been a fan of your blog for a long time and so it's nice to see the comment. If there's any other John Barry (or any other composer, for that matter) that you're looking for, please let me know. I might have it.
Great share! I love John Barry's work, but I have never heard of this movie before. Great stuff!

Still trying to find a copy of "Seance on a Wet Afternoon" on DVD scored by Barry.
Thanks Chris for the nice words! I love John Barry too. Seems like there should be a copy of 'Seance on a Wet Afternoon' on DVD somewhere.

I just discovered your blog not too long ago and enjoy learning about Sweden. (Unfortunately, I missed out on the Les Baxter album though.) I'm so behind on my listening, I still haven't listened to your comp, 'Retro Shopping Volume 1 - Music to Buy Toasters By', but am really looking forward to it!
Thanks for this score. I've always loved Barry - This one, I've never even heard before. I look forward to listening.
Thanks anonymous!

Always nice to hear! I didn't realize the score (or the movie) was that obscure, but I appreciate everybody letting me know.
If you could please either re-up this or just paste a "discreet" link here in the comments, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
Hi anonymous!

Your wish is my command!
In 1976 I first saw the movie and was haunted by the soundtrack. Ever since I desired to watch it again to listen to the soundtrack one more time. In 1986 "The public eye" was announced in a Berlin film theatre called "Movimento", where I went but the film wasn't shown because me and my friend were the only guests. It took at least ten people to start a movie, who didn't show up.
When computers and surfing came up I was told, that there was an absolutely rare Japanese release on vinyle of the "Follow me" soundtrack, which at that time was impossible for me to obtain (as far as the price was concerned).
Every now and then I tried to bid on the bootlegs that were offered via eBay auctions, but failed.
Tonight I dropped in here accidently and downloaded the score, I can't tell you, how overwhelmingly happy I am right now.
Thank you for soundtrack, love this movie taped it of the T.V.about two years ago. the music is just so haunting and unforgettable thank you again.
you just made my day a million times over. i have been looking for this EVERYWHERE but to no avail. THANK YOU for posting this! i am so indescribably happy right now.
MUCH belated, but I feel moved to encourage any folks who stumble upon this post to not hesitate in grabbing this soundtrack. [I paid a fortune on eBay for the LP years ago, so thank our host for keeping the share alive.]

It's one of my favorite Barry scores, comparable to his "The Knack" in style, texture and quality. It should also encourage the curious to seek out a copy of the obscure film (aka, The Public Eye), which, while not one of Carol Reed's best, remains a touching, engaging work. It really needs a DVD release.

Many thanks for a great share, mate.
Great fileshare, and thanks for the pwod, but what's the username? Am I being dim?
Pure genious !
Without even having seen the movie, I well up everytime I hear this haunting theme !
