In the early 1960s Bert Kaempfert produced some well-known film melodies.
One legendary example of this is his 1961 recording of Wonderland By Night. This was the first time a German musician made it to No.1 in the American charts.
In 1966 Bert Kaempfert was commissioned to compose the music for the American comedy thriller “A Man Could Get Killed” – in Germany shown as “Willkommen, Mister B…”.
This great musical film is now available for all Kaempfert fans and sound track aficionados in a digital version for downloading and streaming.
In spite of a cast including some major Hollywood stars such as James Garner, Melina Mercouri, Sandra Dee and Tony Franciosa, the film was not a box office success. However, the music won the Golden Globe for the best film song! And the text version of the instrumental Beddy-Bye, which provided the theme music for the film, became Strangers In The Night, a global hit for Frank Sinatra that today numbers among the international evergreens.
The sound track was recorded by Bert Kaempfert and his orchestra at Studio Rahlstedt, Hamburg/Germany. The arrangements came from the pen of Kaempfert’s friend and musical colleague Herbert Rehbein.
