It won't be a purchase from me, but could the third score be THE UNDEFEATED ?

Two down, one to go. smile

I'd say for people who may have missed out on any of these three scores, getting them on one CD for 19.98 is, well, a good deal. Nothing expanded, but everything remastered freshly, but if you have all three this is not the release for you unless you want to have them all in one place. It is also keyed to the release this week of the Blu-rays of North to Alaska and The Undefeated. Believe me, there are a LOT of John Wayne fans who know nothing of any previous CD releases.

A Christmas Carol/A Child is Born is a no-brainer - it's been OOP for five years, I think, went instantly, and has been the subject of a lot of e-mail requests over the years (this is a title we had literally no emergency copies of from the get-go). As for ease of finding reasonably, there is currently exactly ONE copy on eBay at $36.00. Since our release will be priced at half that perhaps it will be a nice Christmas thing for the many, many people who missed it.

No one is within a country mile on the Golden Age title smile The lead film is VERY well known and has major stars in it.

What's the genre? Film noir?

Here's my final guess regarding the Golden Age premiere, and its merely a composer's name, as I couldn't even begin to hazard a guess as to what the headlining score will be, but, here I go diving into the empty pool:

Could we be at last be hearing more from the pen of Robert Emmett Dolan? (Perhaps "The Bells of St. Mary's," or "The Blue Dahlia," or "The Perils of Pauline," or one of his Bob Hope scores?)

Of course, I was only making an educated guess. Better watch the thread to be sure...

That's the hope but it will all depend on approvals - this time of year gets very difficult and all approvals obviously have to come before everyone leaves for their long Christmas vacations. But I'm hopeful that it will all get approved and we can announce, as we always do, the week before Christmas.

Are we getting a couple of scores by Friedrich Hollaender for Christmas?

And Sabrina could be one of them.

Bruce:

Let your show fans know about the Herrmann re-release. This should cross over into that market.

Are you aware of a concert of this being presented this month?

Saw a notification of it somewhere around here.

Always loved Herrmann's take on A CHRISTMAS CAROL, even saw part of it back in 1954, thought Basil Rathbone was really scary as Marley's ghost. (I was 5 when I saw it.) I still think he's the definitive Marley....

Joe,

I presume Ray Middleton (Fred/Ghost of Christmas Present) did his own singing. He appeared in musical films and on Broadway. He was in the original cast of MAN OF LA MANCHA.

No idea about the singing voice of Tiny Tim or young Scrooge.

I'm delighted that there'll be a release of the original tracks of "To Catch A Thief" - I think this was believed to be lost...

He was also in the original cast of 1776, which I saw 3 times...

And, he's in the movie, playing the same role, the Scotsman from the Delaware delegation.

Sabrina would be terrific, especially if it were in stereo.
