Starring Blue Velvet‘s Hope Lange, Journey to the Center of the Earth‘s Diane Baker, and Suzy Parker as a trio of roomies working under an “exacting” female boss (the one and only Joan Crawford), the film details their trials and tribulations, both professional and very, very personal. Also starring Stephen Boyd (Ben-Hur), Louis Jourdan (Letter from an Unknown Woman), and future super-producer Robert Evans as the naughty men in their lives, the film is brought to the screen by that painterly master of CinemaScope, director Jean Negulesco (Johny Belinda, Three Coins in a Fountain).

One of the best things in The Best is the gorgeous score by Alfred Newman, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to keep an eye Twilight Time distributor Screen Archives’s for the announcement of the prebook date (usually 2-3 weeks before the title’s street date) and get ready to reserve!
