The Shadow of Your Smile

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The Shadow of Your Smile", also known as "Love Theme from The Sandpiper", is a popular song. The music was written by Johnny Mandel with the lyrics written by Paul Francis Webster. The song was introduced in the 1965 film The Sandpiper, with a trumpet solo by Jack Sheldon and later became a minor hit for Tony Bennett (Johnny Mandel arranged and conducted his version as well). It won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year and the Academy Award for Best Original Song.[1] In 2004, the song finished at number 77 in AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs poll of the top tunes in American cinema.[2]
