The Egyptian () is the one of the all-time legendary film scores -- an historical epic jointly scored by Bernard Herrmann and Alfred Newman. The two composers did not just paste in their own music but actually shared themes, planned their narrative approach and merged their styles to the point of truly collaborating.
Bernard Herrmann and Alfred Newman worked together on the Fox film The Egyptian. The story focuses on a young physician to the poor named Sinuhe (Edmund Purdom) and how he destroys his life for a whore from Babylon, Nefer (Bella Darvi) while a poor barmaid Meryt (Jean Simmons) loves him - and he just doesn\'t see it.

Not wishing to engender yet another debate over what constitutes "a classic" score or film, to my ears the score for TE is predominately colorless and undistinguished. To be blunt, the /5(14).
