Notes: The film starring Frank Sinatra as a reformed heroin addict fighting to stay clean on the outside was backed by some great music played by Shorty Rogers and Shelly Manne and their band. The orchestral passages are top notch as well and make for a suitable musical backdrop to the film. Nominated for an Academy Award (both the film and the soundtrack), the film originally was not accepted by the industry due to its explicit treatment of the subject matter. The cover design by Saul Bass has become an icon over time. Classic.
