1942 | Candidato: Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic Picture


The flashbacks are daringly introduced with straight cuts and curt sound bridges; a couple of scenes use slow-motion for the past, a very unusual choice for the period. The soundtrack is unusually lush, with the brilliant Miklós Rózsa supplying lilting waltzes and even some early electronic effects.

  • Adam Suraf's rating of the film Lydia

    Atmospheric, romantic memory piece from Alexander Korda and Julien Duvivier, with Oberon as an aged spinster remembering lost love with three past suitors. Forgotten today, but a good example of Korda's grand production style (with design by his brother Vincent), Duvivier's poetic, set-bound realism, and master cameraman Lee Garmes' beautiful, lush lighting technique.
