"Christopher, in my opinion, really rose to the occasion and created an excellent score. If you wanted something to compare it to, and without detracting from its own uniqueness, I would say it is in the vain of similar Jerry Goldsmith or Elmer Bernstein or Alex North scores for similar pictures. Big where it needs to be, intimate where it needs to be, but really full-bodied and complex, fitting its subject perfectly. It captures the internal discord within the character of Dundee and the relationship of the other characters. And the true test for any film score, for me at least, is if it holds up on listening to it by itself, and this one really does. Key Peckinpah enthusiasts and film score experts who have seen the film and heard this new soundtrack are quite ecstatic about the achievement."
"The music Christopher Caliendo created for La Belle of Broadway is that rare score for a silent film - one that manages to combine contemporary sensibilities and historical elements into one source that works on two levels: it supports and enhances the film as an aritifcat and entertainment of its time, which it must do, and yet works beautifully on its own as a pure listening experience."
