For the 575th Soundtrack of the Week we listened to this record of Ernest Gold's music for The Runner Stumbles.

It has basically two themes heard in several different arrangements: a lovely and haunting main title theme and a kind of early jazz-type song called "My Rumble Seat Gal", first heard with a children's chorus.

What makes it a particularly rewarding listening experience is the blend of instruments. I assume Gold did his own arrangements and orchestrations, as the sonic colors are so interesting and impressive.
