Wow.

It's a miracle no one has commented on this lovely score! A beautiful mixture of Russian and American -type music. It wasn't overwhelming, by any means, like some of the most popular soundtracks are. This one didn't shadow the movie, it highlighted it.

Amen to that, Bruce.
By the end I was humming along with the naval hymn (which plays during the credits, no?).
The soundtrack really helped the feel of the film in my mind.
I just wish I had known the translations while watching so that I could appreciate the irony of "Salute our forefathers" and
the other lines pertaining to honoring the Motherland when Connery's character was, in fact, betraying his heritage.
My applause to Basil Poledouris on his great contribution to this riveting motion picture.
