Photograph article dated May 21, 1964 partially reads, "Composer - Musician Neal Hefti feels that film score music could be the classical music of the future. 'It must be re-scored for listening only, separate from the picture,' Hefti explained over lunch at the Valley's Tahitian. 'But I think the score of any top movie can be made into a major symphonic work.' An observer might feel Hefti is slightly prejudiced because he's just written and conducted his first film score, for Warner's upcoming 'Sex and the Single Girl.' But there's no doubting his sincerity."
