Cape Fear (1962) Herrmann's theme emphasizes the savagery and keeps you on edge 

Next: Opening credits theme is a lone guitar

I should have added that the opening credits theme is "whistling with a lone guitar"

"True Love" sung by Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly in the movie "High Society".

Next:  A song in "Easter Parade" (which to me is Irving Berlin's best movie scores) features a song wishing happiness and luck if not now then later on.

"The Second Time Around" sung by Bing in "High Time" written by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen and made popular by Frank Sinatra from his album "Sinatra's Sinatra" on his Reprise label in 1960.

Next: Early 1960's song which won the Academy Award for "Best Original Song"; however, the song was sung in the film by an actor known predominantly for his superb comedic talent (and dramatic talent as well).

Bonus: Name the singer who had the hit recording of this song and who is the son of an actress and singer/actor.

1st Marsha, thanks for reading my mind. LOL  And Sinatra's Sinatra was my first Sinatra album, wow!

 With the early sixties we get my limited piano repertoire-- but" Call Me Irresponsible" is one of my best numbers. So I've got the sheet music and Jackie Gleason is on the cover. So I'm guessing Jackie sang it in Papa's Delicate Condition.

In my opinion Andy Williams sang the song very well.

Frank Sinatra probably sang it the best and was the most associated with this song.

But I have to say that Jack Jones was the best-looking of the three and certainly a singer's singer because his Renditions were always perfect. Plus that's the answer that you want - - his dad was a great singer, Allan Jones; his mother was the beautiful actress Irene Hervey.

Next: A song that Rosemary Clooney sang in a movie that was a big hit for another singer

Judy sang I Got Rhythm in Girl Crazy, which was first sung and made famous by Ethel Merman in the original Broadway production of Girl Crazy.

Next:  a song retained from the score of a Broadway show in a movie in which all or almost all of the other songs were replaced with new ones.

I'm not sure what the name of this song is, but here's Jane Powell and Cliff Robertson on a first date in The Girl Most Likely.  They are joined by Kaye Ballard and others.

Next:  a song sung on the radio that includes dancing
