What do Roberto Nicolosi and Wilfred Josephs have in common?

(hint: think of film distribution across territories)


I'm not sure I get the hint Mr. Tone. The only plausible, and non-genre related, answer I have is that both were dentists.

Hello! Just popping back for a mo' to say that both Josephs (for CRY OF THE BANSHEE) and Nicolosi (for MASK OF THE DEMON - also known as A Million Other Things) had their original scores ditched for the USA releases and replaced by Les Baxter.

How do I know? Well, that was my question a few weeks ago! Oh DO pay attention at the back!

See you again in a few years!

I am a composer who scored a string of low budget efforts in the 70's and 80's. A couple were genre films, one which has become a mini cult classic in recent years. My name is best known with 3 words which is a big hint. WHO AM I?

Hey Mr. Tone. While I'm pondering your question I have one for you. Did Georges Garvarentz ever score a genre pic? I'm sure he has, but I can't, for the life of me, come up with an answer without breaking the rules.


Sorry, A&C, but I have no internet access where I'm dwelling.
I have about 1 hour a day on a library computer to check mails and visit sites.

Mr. dan already answered your GG question. smile

You're correct, A&C.

Both Nicolosi & Josephs were dentists, but my hint was about scores they wrote which were not used when AIP released their films in the USA regions.
Both had replacement scores by Les Baxter.

(Graham got it right).

[mine was a multi-layered question because Nicolosi & Josephs had more than 1 thing in common]

You're right, Graham.

I apologize if the same subject matter was previously mentioned; I do not read all of the pages of this thread - when I log in I simply click on the last page.

To be honest, Graham, I didn't think you knew about Roberto Nicolosi since you seem to avoid Italian movies.

Glad you knew, though!

[Nicolosi also scored Mario Bava's I TRE VOLTI DELLA PAURA, which in AIP's distribution hands became BLACK SABBATH with yet another replacement score by Les Baxter]

does anyone know if hugo friedhofer's moody score for 'HOMICIDAL' has survived in any form? the music eerily reflects the plot and suspense that take place throughout the whole film. an excellent movie and one of favourite horror films of all time.

Not much, about a dozen theatrical films of low to moderate budgets. He did a film from a very popular writer of cop novels, a culture way up north,a film of native Americans, a claustrophobic horror film etc etc

And here is question to which I don't have the answer: has Georges Delerue ever scored any genre films apart from Something Wicked this Way Comes, Harry Kummel's Malpertuis and Les Visiteurs?

Not really, it is interesting of all the films he did score so little were of 2 very popular genres , HORROR AND SCIENCE FICTION. it's a shame, he could have done some fine scores in genre films.

I am a pretty well known actress in my day[the 70's] doing both major films and smaller films.I once early in my career sang a end theme song from a director's first film. This director would go on to make many genre films from the 70's into the 80's, WHO AM I-hint- I am known as being a pretty sexy actress, a competent but not great actress.

That was a great guess but no- another hint- the peak of this girls fame came in the early to mid 70's.
