Primarily a cover album, this album is completely devoted to Oscar-winning movie themes from the 1930s to 1974; it capitalizes the fact that it took McGovern only one year to introduce a second Oscar-winning song. The fourth track is a medley of "When You Wish Upon a Star" (from the 1940 animated film Pinocchio) and "Over the Rainbow" (from The Wizard of Oz). Strangely, the album begins with just 34 seconds of the song "Thanks for the Memory" and fades into the next song ("The Continental," the oldest movie theme on this album). "Thanks for the Memory" is also the last track on the album and continues where it left off but (oddly enough) fades immediately after the next verse.
There were two singles to come from this album: "We May Never Love Like This Again" (from The Towering Inferno, which was a minor hit for McGovern one year before) and "The Continental" (from the 1934 film The Gay Divorcee, which was the very first song to ever win an Oscar). Also during this year (and into 1976), McGovern recorded an entire album's worth of material for what would have been her fourth album on 20th Century Records. Only two singles from the project were released - "Even Better Than I Know Myself" and "Love Songs Are Getting Harder To Sing" (with the B-side "Stop Me If You've Heard This Song Before") - but due to poor reception of these singles on the pop chart, a full album was never released and remains in the vaults at Universal (parent company to 20th Century.)
