Silva Screen Records Releasing 7″ Single of Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now

For Record Store Day on Saturday, 22 April, Silva Screen Records is set to release Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 British horror classic Don’t Look Now on a very limited edition (only 1,000 made) 7″ Single in transparent red. After 44 years, the film still retains the power to shock audiences.

Native Venetian composer Pino Donaggio was discovered by a producer on the film and his music appealed to director Roeg. It became his debut film score, launching a long career and a close working relationship with Brian De Palma. Italian singer, TV presenter and future politician Iva Zanicchi’s vocal version of Donaggio’s poignant Laura’s Theme captures perfectly the mood of this landmark film.

In the film:

Still grieving over the accidental death of their daughter, Christine (Sharon Williams), John (Donald Sutherland) and Laura Baxter (Julie Christie) head to Venice, Italy, where John’s been commissioned to restore a church. There Laura meets two sisters (Hilary Mason, Clelia Matania) who claim to be in touch with the spirit of the Baxters’ daughter. Laura takes them seriously, but John scoffs until he himself catches a glimpse of what looks like Christine running through the streets of Venice.
