The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming (1966) (Johnny Mandel)

Another favorite movie with a score by a favorite composer. Perhaps calling something favorite so many times tends to make it lose its meaning, but you can't really fight the truth. This is the fun score to the Carl Reiner / Alan Arkin Cold War satire.

When you write so many of these posts in a row, you start to run out of things to say (which I'm sure you find hard to believe judging from the blog). It's only when I look at the posts on the blog or when I read other blogs that I think I should probably talk more about the music or the movies, but I frankly don't know what to say. I'm sure the Internet Movie Database or half a dozen other sites and blogs can give you a better description of the movie than I can. And when I try and think of something to say about the music, it's a little bit like trying to describe the color green to somebody. I suppose you could talk about the technical aspects like its wavelength or its degree of darkness. Or you could discuss it in poetic terms - how it affects you emotionally. If I had to blog about the color green, I probably would just end up saying it's green. Enjoy!

Hi Omega!

Thanks so much for all the nice things you said! I am so happy you like this score! And as for this being the best film music blog, I really love hearing you say that (even though I know it's not true). It especially means a lot coming from someone who has such a great blog himself! I will say though that mine is the best film music blog that uses this specific web address. :))

Hi, I know this is... well 6 years late, but I'm looking for the soundtrack, and nothing seems to work! Was hoping it could be reuploaded or at least shared with me somehow. I cannot seem to find it anywhere. Thank you very much.
