The Summertime Killer, a crime movie and a love story, was directed in 1972 by Antonio Isasi-Isasmendi and starred Christopher Mitchum, Karl Malden, Olivia Hussey and Claudine Auger among others. Academy award winning composer Luis Bacalov wrote the score which perfectly reflects the core of the plot, with a strange mix of love and death. The composer alternates dramatically suspenseful score with ‘source music’ in the form of ballad, rock music and dance floor tunes, usually heard through a car radio or a jukebox typical of 60s and 70s cinema.
