How To Save a Marriage And Ruin Your Life - Open, Winds of Change How 60's can you get? Ambience from the Ray Conniff Singers with Michel Legrand and Mack David's "Winds of Change," the opening to How To Save a Marriage And Ruin Your Life, 1968, starring Dean Martin and Stella Stevens.
Blob, The (1958) - Beware Of The Blob The title song a landmark on its own, tacked on by Paramount studios which bought and distributed the movie, with delightful graphics and the tune by then-unknown Burt Bacharach and Mack (brother of Hal) David, from The Blob, 1958, starring Steve McQueen and Aneta Corsaut.
Scared Stiff (1953) - I'm A Debonair Slob Jerry Lewis is bumbling fill-in waiter Myron, not formally part of the act Larry (Dean Martin) is performing, and we’ll later learn their old pals, showgirl Rosie (Dorothy Malone) included in the schtick for the customers, early in the 1953 horror-comedy vehicle Scared Stiff.
It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963) - Title Song It’s not always remembered that there’s a title song, by Ernest Gold and Mack David, presented here as the Overture, before the credits and everything, sung by an uncredited chorus, from the Stanley Kramer all-star mega-comedy It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, 1963.
Glory Alley (1952) - Title Song New Orleans boxer Socks (Ralph Meeker) is leaving to fight in Korea, so this sendoff with pals (John McIntire, Gilbert Roland et al) features a song from his trainer Shadow (Louis Armstrong), also the world’s greatest trumpeter, an original by Mack David and Jay Livingston, in Glory Alley, 1952.
Cat Ballou (1965) - Ballad of Cat Ballou Nat Cole and Stubby Kaye perform the Academy Award-nominated "The Ballad of Cat Ballou" by Mack David and Jerry Livingston in the opening sequence from Cat Ballou, 1965.
Follow That Dream (1962) - Not The Marrying Kind In their first squat in the Florida Keys, Toby (Elvis Presley) and his informally adopted younger non-sister Holly (Anne Helm) discussing marriage, tune by Sherman Edwards and Mack David, in Follow That Dream, 1962.
At War With The Army - Tonda Wonda Hoy Just a piece of a tune by Private Korwin (Jerry Lewis) before his slicker songwriting partner Sergeant Puccinelli (Dean Martin) steps in with Tonda Wonda Hoy, by Mack David and Jerry Livingston, in At War With The Army, 1951.
At War With The Army - Beans An opening number by Mack David and Jerry Livingston, Beans, for Korwin (Jerry Lewis), who then gets chewed out by Puccinelli (Dean Martin), in the third Martin & Lewis feature, At War With The Army, 1951.
