    Twenty-Four Hours from Tulsa was another of his best songs, also written by Bacharach and David, as was Liberty Valance. 

    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
    was one of the great westerns, with Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne and Lee Marvin.

         According to Wikipedia, Gene Pitney had 16 songs that were top 40 hits on the U.S. Hot 100.  He was a New Englander.  Born in Hartford Conn.  Raised in Rockville, Conn.  He died in 2006, in Wales, UK.  He was 66 years old.
         One of my favorite Pitney songs is: It Hurts To Be In Love, released 7/64, written by Greenfield and Miller.  This song was no.7 on the U.S. Hot 100 according to the aforementioned Internet source.
