Boomkat Product Review:
**Sought-after French film score available on vinyl for 1st time since the '60s. Edition of 300**
"Michel Legrand is behind the music of The Thomas Crown Affair, Summer of ’42, Yentl, Never Say Never Again (Sean Connery’s last James Bond) among hundreds of other soundtracks and has recorded with Frank Sinatra, Elle Fitzgerald, Charles Aznavour, James Ingram, Barbara Streisand, Sarah Vaughan to name a few.
A true time capsule of the effulgence of the 60s, Qui Êtes-Vous Polly Maggoo? is an art house movie spoofing the fashion world and its excesses starring Dorothy McGowan (a former model discovered by an agency in a crowd of Beatles fans at Kennedy Airport, who has appeared in Vogue, Elle, Glamour and more) in the title role of Polly Magoo, a Brooklyn-born model followed by a French TV crew as she takes her career to Paris. The movie developed cult status thanks to its gyrating scenario satirizing politics, fashion, the media and more aspects of the mid-60s French society, and its detours into fantasy sequences and animated segments (which could have well inspired the animated interludes of the original Monthy Python series). In William Klein’s movie, fashion often takes a religious connotation, which is well underlined by Michel Legrand’s superb soundtrack."
