Seance on a Wet Afternoon


No Soundtrack Release

The Movie

Never saw it. It doesn't run on American tv. This is from the Internet Movie Database:

Myra, a self-styled psychic in London, concocts a scheme to gain celebrity. She convinces Billy, her weak-willed husband, to kidnap the young daughter of wealthy parents. She and Billy will demand money, and then she will go to the parents with extra-sensory messages that will help the police find the child and the ransom. The plan unfolds beautifully, except that after her first visit to the parents, the police want to check her out. He's scared. As her delusions worsen, Bill realizes Myra may not want the child found alive. Behind it all is also the death at birth, years before, of their only child, whom they've named Arthur and who is Myra's contact with the beyond.

The Music

Never saw it nor heard the music. It's on my Netflix queue.

Release Notes

An up-tempo version shows up on the compilation John Barry, the EMI Years, Volume III, which I am told is very different from the version in the film and other Barry recordings.
