Instrumental title theme of Otto Preminger's film. Words were added when filmgoers started claiming for the theme to be worked out as a proper song. That's when they hired Johnny Mercer. Musical Director Emil Newman was the brother of Alfred Newman (who wrote Love Is A Many Splendored Thing) and Randy Newman's uncle.
