Bruce, are there any records that show who sings for who in Christmas Carol.
the only one I knowis what Shall I give my lad for Christmas - the girl is dubbed by Marilyn Horne.


Not that I've been able to find.

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

And Sabrina could be one of them.


Well, well, well - now we're talkin'! Mr. Hollander is one of my favorites, oh, yes, he's one of my favorites.

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


It would be, wouldn't it? And it is, at least most of it smile

Now, what could the second film be? And wouldn't be even more amazing if it included surviving tracks from a bunch of other Hollander scores?

It will be to the wire whether Sabrina makes it into this release - if not, it will definitely be in the final release of the year with two other titles, as long as the approvals come for the latter two.

What's exactly the status of this score ?

Imdb credits Hollander as song adapter. Does the score feature original material composed by Hollander, or an adapted score based on preexisting material by other composers ?

Most of it, as per the wishes of director Billy Wilder, are Hollander's brilliant arrangements of popular songs, but there are a handful of original cues as well.

Mr. Hollander's name was mentioned by member PFK many posts ago. There was no acknowledgement from Bruce. Whatever, this will be a definite purchase from me. From SABRINA I remember a beautiful piece of music called Isn't It Romantic. Frederick Hollander also did WE'RE NO ANGELS.

And that would be the companion score, along with a bunch of other stuff from other films. I must have missed the Hollander mention - age you know.

Yes, indeed ! smile

I know this composer very little because of his (almost) non-existing discography but I've always found his music, in some of the movies I've seen, very charming.

So these are very exciting news !

Any surviving track from one of the three Judy Holliday movies ?

It's OK, Bruce. I'm a septagenerian.

Bruce, today was an especially great day for Tiomkin fans. There's a few Tiomkin- Paramount scores that might be available to you; like PEKING EXPRESS. Anything in the pipeline yet?

I just played my FSM Comancheros. Sound is ok, if slightly rough in busier passages, but as it's one of my favorite western scores I'd be interested to know how much of an improvement the new remastering has made.
Mp3 clips won't give an ideal comparison, but when it comes to placing your clips on the site, perhaps a few more than usual would be useful for comparison purposes, covering some of the passages where you think any improvements are notable.

Hi Cody, I did indeed guess Hollander many posts back.

Bruce, are you giving an old guy like me a hard time? smile

In any event, I will buy them all. I don't have The Undefeated and the Herrmann cd. I'm especially happy to see SABRINA, a beautiful score. smile

Antheil? Deutsch?

Hollander? Lava?

Moross? Lynn Murray?

Roemheld? Leith Stevens?




Here is my post from many posts back where I guessed Hollander! smile

...... and I'm older than you Bruce! smile

While you know I feel James Nelson's remasters make everything better, I'm not sure it will be sufficiently different - just no way for me to gauge that.

Actually my hope it's an improvement of the sound for THE UNDEFEATED: there were some real distracting sound issues on some tracks on the previous release. So I just wonder if more than ten years later technology could work a miracle...

Again, this is all subjective, but to my ears it definitely sounds better.

Very cool three-fer reissue, Bruce. I confess I was hoping for more music from The Undefeated, because it was released in the days before complete score releases were the rule, even from FSM. This was a Douglass Fake production if I'm not mistaken, with him editing down an "album presentation". Since I never expected this more obscure score to get a re-release (at one point Lukas said it was one of the poorest FSM sellers) I guess I never really thought about expansion, but then again maybe parts of the score were unusable.

My understanding is that the tapes are in extremely bad shape and this was about it. But at close to fifty minutes, it's a lot of great music.
