|Notes: ~ "Who
can forget the impact of 'La Strata' and the haunting
theme that served as an identifying melody for the
character portrayed by Giulietta Masina? The music, by
Nino Rota, was a perfect complement to the Federico
Fellini film, one of the first to make an impression. Rota, who also scored Fellini's 'La Dolce Vita,' 'Nights
of Cabiria,' 'The White Sheik,' and 'Vitelloni,' has
written all kinds of music, from pop songs to symphonies,
to grand opera. But his film music is very special. Don
Raye supplied the English lyrics to Rota's theme. His
credits include such varied songs as 'Mr. Five by Five,'
'I'll Remember April,' and 'Domino.' "
