Some would say that the filmmakers had the bad taste and lack of discretion to put dialogue and sound effects all over the score when they made the film back in 1963. Perhaps that's what they meant?
I am absolutely thrilled that the painstaking effort to bring the fabulous "Cleopatra" soundtrack out has been made. The beautiful theme needs to be heard again. Alex North was such a genious. No one else could give us such hauntingly romantic love themes as he did in "Spartacus" and "Cleopatra". Cheers to Varese Saraband and 20th Century Fox for bringing back a delicious "treasure".
