Wim Wender’s 1982 film (executive produced by Francis Ford Coppola) Hammett starred Frederic Forrest as the titular American crime writer who becomes mixed up in a fictional mystery, similar to his own stories.

It is often assumed that composer John Barry’s association with Francis Ford Coppola had been cemented through his work on two entirely different 1980s films: The Cotton Club (1984) and Peggy Sue Got Married (1986), but in truth, their relationship began earlier, when Barry was hired to score Hammett.

Barry had great fondness for his Hammett score telling Ford Thaxton in 2001, “I loved doing Hammett. That was a terrific movie. If the director’s got it correctly onto the screen and that intimacy is present, it’s just great to be able to write that simply and orchestrate that sparsely.”

This release is newly remastered and edited with additional and alternate cues and includes extensive sleeve notes from Geoff Leonard and Pete Walker, authors of John Barry Plays 007: The Music And Art Of James Bond.
