LIMITED EDITION OF 500 COPIES
We are proud to present for the first time in any format the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack composed by Carlo Savina for the 1966 Swashbuckler Historical Drama L’UOMO CHE RIDE (The Man Who Laughs)
directed by Sergio Corbucci and starring Jean Sorel, Lisa Gastoni, Edmund Purdom, Pierre Clementi, Ilaria
This is a new version of famous German classic of 1928 starring Conrad Veidt. The theme is basically the
same: a boy, kidnapped by gypsies, has his face deformed to be always smiling and thus become a circus
attraction. Sold to company of traveling artists, he knows a blind girl, for who falls in love.
But a great difference exists between both movies: Of England of the king James II, the history was transferred to Italy of the 16th century, in the times of Caesar and Lucretia Borgia. Angelo - the man that always laughs - is a monster, horrendous, much uglier than the character that Veidt interprets in the original film and he will become a killer to service of Borgia.
As a bonus we offer a suite from the Rejected Score by Piero Piccioni, written in a more modern and
De-Luxe booklet with 16 pages of rare archive photos and posters.
