Great film music - music composed for the only art form created in the 20th century - can stand alone as a great symphonic experience. Nowhere is that more obvious than in the case of 20th Century Fox's 'The Egyptian' of 1954, a unique one-time collaboration between two great film composers, Alfred Newman and Bernard Herrmann. This legendary score for one of the first wide-screen epics is rich in orchestral colours, complex orchestrations and chorus. With a cast including Victor Mature, Jean Simmonds and Peter Ustinov, the film has largely been forgotten today, yet as 'Classics Today' wrote of the original Marco Polo release \if the movie no longer merits much attention, the music certainly does.""
