Jerry Goldsmith - The Flim-Flam Man / A Girl Named Sooner album FLAC
The Flim-Flam Man features harmonica, banjos, and honky tonk piano mixing with strings and brass for a decidedly comic Western feel. Catchy main title theme receives many joyous variations. More serious score for A Girl Named Sooner demonstrates Jerry Goldsmith's ear for drama. Harmonica again plays a central role, representing the simple roots of the main character, while string and harp passages highlight the more tender and melancholy moments.

Jerry Goldsmith wrote some of the great soundtracks of the 1960s-early 2000s, previously to his untimely death. This is one of the first, and for a now obscure movie (you can see it on YouTube) that used to play often on Network TV in the 1960s. George C. Scott plays the eponymous Film-Flam man, and newbie Michael Sarrazin plays the young man. Wildest ensues. I highly recommend this CD whether you are a fan of either movie. Although I haven't seen "A Girl Named Sooner" in many years, the music is quite mellow. If you enjoy this catch "Cat Ballou" music.
The Flim-Flam Man (titled One Born Every Minute in some countries) is a 1967 American comedy film directed by Irvin Kershner, featuring George C.
