Samson And Delilah Movie Suite

Samson And Delilah Movie Suite
Music by Victor Young

In this 1949 epic Bible story, we have a movie suite that delivers drama, lavishly crafted strings and all the requisite motifs expected to carry one of history's well known romances. Mr. Young was nominated for an academy award for this music yet losing to Franz Waxman's Sunset Boulevard in 1951. It seems that Hollywood was growing tired of the biblical Epics. Still, with a timing of 23:26, this delivers a classic punch that is entertaining to say the least. Sure do hope you enjoy!  -MJ
