Angela Morley – Captain Nemo and the Underwater City (1969)


While the film received a poor 5.4 rating on IMDB, the soundtrack itself is a golden nugget. A mixture of different classical periods (classical, romantic, impressionist) and sounds of the day in 1969. I doubt whether any other composer could have grasped the underwater atmosphere better than she did – it’s amazing what you can express with music. In 2009, Film Score Monthly published the score apparently for the the first time, at 1,500 copies. Those went of course out of print, however, and today copies of the score fetch high prices.
