2012 release. Digitmovies release for the first time on CD, Carlo Rustichelli's complete OST for the movie Sedotta E Abbandonata (aka "Seduced And Abandoned"). Directed in 1964 by Pietro Germi and starring Stefania Sandrelli, Saro Urzì, Lando Buzzanca, Aldo Puglisi, Lola Braccini, Leopoldo Trieste, Umberto Spadaro, Rocco D'Assunta, Paola Biggio, Oreste Palella, and Attilio Martella. This movie is part of trilogy started with the movie Divorzio All'italiana (1961) and concluded with Signore & Signori (1966). In Sicily the sixteen years old student (Sandrelli), gets sexual abuse from the promised husband (Puglisi) of her sister Matilde (Biggio). The father, notice of the event, tries to impose the shotgun wedding to the seducer who refuses because he despises the girl's compliance. A fake kidnapping is cook up as excuse for the wedding in front of people's eyes, but the parent will see the daughter Agnese's refuse, but in the name of the family's honor he will succeed to lead the couple to the altar dying cause of a heart failure really the day of the wedding, while the other daughter Matilde will close in a convent. Sedotta E Abbandonata can be considered as one of the absolute masterpieces of the Italian movie comedy as also the notable music score by Carlo Rustichelli. In 1964 C.A.M. issued a 33rpm album containing 17 tracks, re-issued on CD in Europe and in Japan. Thanks to the mono master tapes of the original session, Digitmovies release every note recorded at that time. Rustichelli has written a memorable ballad with the style of the Sicilian storytellers called "L'onuri Di l'Ascaluni" and the love theme "Vampata D'amuri" performed by the voice of Pino Ferrara alternated to motifs sometimes funny and sometimes dramatic (like an epic Deguello theme that highlights the hostile, almost western side of the plot) that evoke the recognizable style of Rustichelli. The inedit material contains several alternate takes of the album versions that shall make Carlo Rustichelli fans glad.
