This is one of several scores from Hopkins' personal collection, signed by him, that we have in stock. Hopkins is well remembered for the distinctive soundtracks he composed for the 1950's and 60's film hits - Baby Doll, The Hustler, 12 Angry Men and others as well for his extensive television related compositions in his role as Paramount TV music director from 1969-73. His rare soundtracks for Lilith, starring Warren Beatty and Jean Seberg and This Property is Condemned starring Natalie Wood are much sought after rarities.
