Intrada says selected cues from the original optical music tracks were transferred to 35mm magnetic film long ago,but only " recently discovered and digitized". I wonder if this means there is still the possibility of many Franz Waxman scores we thought were lost; especially THE FURIES and COME BACK, LITTLE SHEBA. Whatever the answer, I hope Kritzerland will continue to give us scores from the Paramount vault. The more labels involved the better for us.



Cody, I too noticed: " recently discovered and digitized .... " It sounds like many film scores have just been discovered. I too would love to see THE FURIES and COME BACK, LITTLE SHEBA, among many other Paramount scores. Let's keep our fingers crossed and support Intrada and the other labels saving the great Golden Age scores! smile

Perhaps try Googling something like "iMac m3u playlists" etc and see if you can find a solution.

Yes, somewhere in the settings of each browser there should be an option of what to do with 'm3u's. I have chosen 'use vlc player' which is my default audio/video player and the sound files on Intrada's website play immediatedly.


I'm using the latest Mac OS and FireFox and have zero problems hearing sound samples from any of the sites. So yes I think it's a browser issue. (Never had to mess with settings of any kind either.)

I do have some issues viewing or logging into some other sites using Fire Fox. So I use Safari or Chrome when there is a problem. Unfortunately there's no one browser that works perfectly across the web.

I am a little disappointed by the lack of samples on this. Only four samples are given here compared to 10 for Homeward Bound. It doesn't give me much to judge the music on other than to say it sounds good for a score from the 40s.

As far as I'm concerned, if it's Rozsa, it's a must-buy for me! smile

I was aware that some releases were from Paramount movies, but I dont think I've seen the phrase "Paramount Pictures Historical CDs preservations efforts" before. It sounds like they have a special division devoted to it, which is why I asked if they also provided the material in its final form (which is not unheard of). Maybe I'm taking it too literally, but "Historical CDs" is capitalized.

Historical CDs might be a formal name of sorts, but I don't expect it really means much overall. If it did, we'd likely know it by now or see it on the tray cards. It likely made its way into the blurb because that's how the parties think of it. I doubt operations are different.

This is of course another must-have - and yet another miracle survivor smile

Many thanks for bringing this to the public, Universal, Paramount and of course, Intrada.

Not to be impatient, but I wonder if the booklet contains a blurb for the next release smile

'The Trouble With Harry' would be ideal for September smile

It's interesting that Paramount appear to have retained the music rights to the films they sold to Universal (i.e. pre 1948 sound films other than Hal Wallis productions) which of course wasn't the case with the M-G-M films sold to Turner and now fortunately in the hands of Warner Bros.

Given what Intrada has said about these two newly discovered Rozsa recordings, I'm thinking Paramount is making a specific effort to digitize all the soundtrack music (or whatever they think is "historical") they can find. Sort of like the Gutenberg Project. Perhaps someone at the studio has convinced them that there's a need, especially before the elements bite the dust. Previously, I imagine the labels would have to inquire about the music, then Paramount would have to find out where it was, what condition it was in, etc.

is it me or does Lizabeth Scott look like Bogart in drag? Not because of the particular photo, but in general?

She actually has considerable similarities to Lauren Bacall: that's probably what's hitting you subliminally.

Part of Paramount Picture's ongoing Historical CDs preservation efforts. Artwork courtesy Universal Pictures.

I wonder what exactly that means - are they going to make soundtracks more accessible to the labels? Soundtracks from all eras?



You haven't been paying attention, Last Child.

In the last 4-5 years, at least the following titles from the Paramount vaults---coming from the decades of the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s....have been released. Many are already OOP.

Mr. Kritzerland smile has been the most prolific (with other titles in the works, I'm sure), and other very select titles have been released on Intrada, LaLaLand, and Counterpoint.

Composers represented include Amfitheatrof, Bernstein, Bregman, Buttolph, Duning, Friedhofer, Hollander, Murray, Newman, Previn, Raksin, Rozsa, Salter, Stevens, Tiomkin, Van Cleave, Waxman, Young,

The mining of the Paramount music archive has been a wonderful development over the past few years, and I, for one, am thrilled. Quite a number of the now-released titles were on my Holy Grails lists and considering that these elements are now 50-60-70 years old, they sound incredibly good!




Wow! I didn't realize so many Paramount Golden Age titles have been issued on CDs! smile

I too am very grateful we have been getting so many Golden Age scores I thought I would never see on CDs. Great sound quality too! Please keep them coming guys! smile

nope, that's not it. Her face straight on seemed to have certain masculine quality; maybe it's when she's angry. I noticed it watching the movie so maybe the insert photo is helpful after all.

You can almost hear her saying, "You're taking the fall, shweetheart."

The labels do the work of finding and evaluating elements, etc. I think there is a specific effort, but it doesn't sound like the relationships changed. The Rozsa discoveries could have easily been made by Doug or Roger. It sounds like the studio has been convinced and so the labels more easily acquire the titles and do the legwork. But I doubt their own resources are invested to do the transfers and mastering when the labels already do that for them.

It's funny, I had no idea Rozsa scored a Dolph Lundgren movie.

Thanks for adding those, Bob D.

That makes it, by my count, 66 titles, now including DESERT FURY.

Of those 66, I have 63, so I still need to get THE LOST WEEKEND, WILD IS THE WIND, and DESERT FURY. I am truly sick! smile

......and an easy mark for producers of Golden Age CDs......but I am getting old, so they'd better start getting these out much faster while I still realize what folding money looks like and is used for! smile
