"For a fellow named Mancini to score a film set in Italy (Sicily, to be more exact) is not an assignment, it is a labor of love. Visions of my early flute-playing days in the Sons of Italy Band of West Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, are still quite vivid in my memory. I suspect that more than a bit of those memories is present in my score to Blake Edwards' World Ward II comedy "What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?"
The Main Title music, the Swing March features twelve bugles, eight piccolos, five drums, plus assorted brass. Visions of my piccolo-playing days in the 528th Air Force Band during World War II are still vivid in my memory. Come to think of it, considering my background, I feel that I was likely choice to write the score for "What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?"".
