Topkapi (1964) (Manos Hadjidakis)

This seems like a pretty common album which is probably why I haven't posted it until now, but I like Manos Hadjidakis and I haven't seen it around anywhere else, so I thought I'd post it. I kept waiting for someone else to post it, so I held off, but I suspect everyone felt the same way about it being pretty available and didn't put it up either.

It's the score to the Melina Mercouri / Peter Ustinov heist caper movie. I love caper movies. They seemed to disappear in the 80's and part of the 90's, but they've made a comeback lately. Or at least people are just remaking older caper movies. It seems kind of odd that people would remake Gambit (I think they remade that one, didn't they?), Ocean's Eleven, The Italian Job, or Mission: Impossible, for instance, but not movies like Topkapi, Who's Minding the Mint?, The Hot Rock, or The Bank Shot. Well, it's probably just a matter of time, I guess.

Well, if you like fun comedy caper scores with a Turkish / Greek flavor (talking about bridging cultural enmity!), then you..........probably already have this, now that I think about it. Wait, enjoy it anyway!

Holy crap, thank you for this.

Do you have The Flim-Flam Man starring George C Scott?
Fantastic fun! Definitely one for The Crime Loungers. Thank you very much for the wonderful site & generosity.
So, I do not really consider it may have effect.
