La-La Land Records and Sony Music presents the remastered and expanded 2-CD SET of legendary composer Dimitri Tiomkin’s (SHADOW OF A DOUBT, GIANT, RIO BRAVO, THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA) score to the 1963 motion picture epic 55 DAYS AT PEKING, starring Charlton Heston, Ava Gardner and David Niven, directed by Nicholas Ray. Tiomkin's robust orchestral score, regarded as one of his finest works, soars with excitement and boundless creativity. Expanded by well over an hour beyond its original LP release, this comprehensive re-issue contains additional material that was not used in the final cut of the film. Produced by Didier C. Deutsch and Mark G. Wilder, and mastered by Mark G. Wilder from recently discovered Sony Music vault elements, this release is a must for all golden age score enthusiasts. The handsome 24-Page booklet contains exclusive, in-depth liner notes by film music writer Frank K. DeWald.
