Notes & Reviews:

"Addison stepped in at the last minute to composer 'Torn Curtain' for Hitchcock, writing a turbulent main theme, scored in dark colours, stamping a less than convincing film with an iron grip. There's an affectionate parody of the Errol Flynn movies in his 'Swashbuckler Suite' and he evokes the small-town community in Strange Invaders in some fetching music including a short dance sequence in homage to Steiner's A Summer Place... overall, this is a well stocked tribute to a versatile composer who hadn't until now received his due." -Gramophone
