Glad to see one score is September Affair. I have the film on VHS. Isn't a theme for Italy in this film latter used as a theme for Italy in Three Coins in the Fountain?

Some of these may have been mentioned before, anyway:

Streets of Laredo
Miss Tatlock's Millions
Beyond Glory
Dream Girl
The Imperfect Lady
Riding High
Anything Can Happen


Whatever the other two scores are I'll buy any Victor Young! smile

Didn't see the September Affair guess. Now we have two titles.

Bruce, I think all of the 50s Victor Young Paramount films have been now guessed.

Please go back and check the guesses. Thanks.

A message to Bruce, PFK and all Victor Young fans: I just finished watching SEPTEMBER AFFAIR on youtube. There is so much beautiful music in this film. Italian and classical music adaptations with a primary feature in the film being Kurt Weill's September Song from Knickerbocker Holiday. I want to ask Bruce, how many minutes of the CD is devoted to SEPTEMBER AFFAIR and do we get to hear Walter Huston singing September Song ? That would be wonderful.

You're right, I missed the post with the third title - my old eyes must be getting VERY tired smile

The Accused was a correct guess.

No Walter Huston vocal - about twenty-two minutes of September Affair.

Bruce,I'll forgive your old eyes for being tired if somewhere down the road you and Nick Redman don't forget to find space for Alfred Newman's THE GUNFIGHTER.

I was the first to guess The Accused 1949 on March 7th at 12:38 AM. What are you trying to do Bruce, give Cody and me a nervous breakdown? smile

Did I miss something? You said all three films were now guessed. So September Affair, The Accused and ......?

Cody, am I confused? Isn't the Italy theme in September Affair later used as the Italy theme in Three Coins in the Fountain? Manderley?

In any event, this looks like a GREAT Victor Young CD! smile

PFK, the third score is APPOINTMENT WITH DANGER . An Alan Ladd film from 1951 that is not even listed when checking the imdb database listing the films of Victor Young. I found it in a book I have titled FILM COMPOSERS IN AMERICA by Clifford McCarty. Not sure about your THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN question, but I wouldn't be a bit surprised.

Thanks for the info Cody. Looks like an outstanding CD. I'll take all the Victor Young I can get! smile

I guessed film noir early on. Guess I was right on 2 out of 3 scores.

You don't think of Victor Young and film noir but he scored at least 12 noir films.

Right after the main title to September Affair is an Italy theme. I think Young also used it a few years later in Three Coins In A Fountain. Not sure if he even composed it. I'll have to check the Three Coins CD.

I hope to get O. Henry/Irish in the mail tomorrow! smile

.....Cody, am I confused? Isn't the Italy theme in September Affair later used as the Italy theme in Three Coins in the Fountain? Manderley?.....

Yes.....I noticed that quite a few years ago, too.

For those who appreciate this type of romantic film, I'd highly recommend a viewing of SEPTEMBER AFFAIR. It's very well acted by its principals---Joseph Cotten, Joan Fontaine, Francoise Rosay, Jessica Tandy, and Robert Arthur---and, beyond the romance part, the subject matter of what happens when you try to close out one life and begin another is quite interesting and thoughtful and compelling.

I must confess that I've always been a sucker for most of William Dieterle's films, and, of course, the hand of Hal Wallis involved in a production is always a good sign of production quality. The postwar footage of Rome and environs, only 5 years after the war, is fascinating, managed mostly by second-unit background plates and doubles etc., but well-integrated into the story.

The score---leaving room for concert moments of Rachmaninoff (Fontaine plays a concert pianist), and quiet references to the Weill "September Song," lifted from Walter Huston's hit recording of the day---and then Victor Young's weaving it all together with his own melodies is quite a fine piece of work. They don't write scores like this anymore.

I've always thought this film---now very much forgotten for the most part---would make an excellent remake.

Today's headlines---with several passengers on a plane which crashes who are not who we think they are, and in which the actual owners of the passports are still alive---has very similar connections with SEPTEMBER AFFAIR. It's odd that SEPTEMBER AFFAIR should be a current soundtrack release at this moment.

In the early 50s Newman etc. had a few very short scores, main title & end title, like The Gunfighter and Panic in the Streets (?), Fourteen Hours (?), No Way Out (?) and?

Bruce, these "short" scores would be great as bonus tracks on future Fox Golden Age CDs! smile

Close. the Italy theme in September, is the theme for Venice in three coins in the Fountain.
