Digitmovies presents for the first time on CD the complete OST in full stereo by Franco Micalizzi for the war movie "Il grande attacco" (aka "The Biggest Battle") directed in 1978 by Umberto Lenzi and starring an all-star cast: Giuliano Gemma, Henry Fonda, John Huston, Samantha Eggar, Stacy Keach, Helmut Berger, Edwige Fenech. During the Olympic games of 1936 delegates from different countries meet in Germany and their fates will cross again during World War II: the German officer Roland, General Foster, an Irish professor, another German. At the end they all will die and only one American returns home to his wife and children. The scenario of war and the various human affairs are highlighted by the brilliant orchestral OST by Franco Micalizzi which Cinevox had issued on a vinyl album (MDF 33/118) at the time of the film's release. For this CD we have had access to the stereo master tapes of the original session that allowed us to discover new material completely restored and digitally remastered with the full approval of the author. The Maestro Micalizzi has composed a heroic march as main theme which gets alternated with dramatic themes and mysterious music commenting on the military actions. The harsh atmosphere of war is broken by the song "Winter in Berlin" performed by the beautiful voice of Maggie Mac Neal. A proper rescue and preservation for the delight of all fans of the legendary Umberto Lenzi and Franco Micalizzi.
