Yes,thanks for reminding me about Chisum. It would make a great companion piece. In fact, Chisum would be the main attraction.

I'd really like to hear the music he did for the Tony Franciosa episodes (or at least the 1st episode, Fear of High Places) of The Name of the Game, another Leslie Stevens production. The Jeff Dillon theme is one of my all time favorites. The series theme itself was Grusin, tho'.

"The Name of the Game" had some interesting and classy composer choices. On top of Frontiere, the series episodes were also scored by (there's no complete listing online currently, so this is all I got):

Leonard Rosenman (multiples)
Ralph Ferraro (who also was orchestrating for Rosenman at the time)
Dave Grusin (on top of the theme)
Benny Carter
Oliver Nelson
Ralph Burns
Billy Goldenberg
Robert Prince
Patrick Williams
Stanley Wilson (supposedly)

I'm sure many of us would like to see (hear) these but unfortunately -- and this just from stuff said here in the past -- the material for both seems to be missing/lost (along with Frontiere's Barquero).

Find the love theme from Alex North's Spartacus:
the blueprint for Frontiere's Hero's Island main theme that
he reworked for 4 episodes of Stoney Burke.

They also said that about THE GUNFIGHT AT THE OK CORRAL. We shall see.

More about the 1964 series Twelve O'Clock High:

In Follow The Leader (episode 2, guest starring Andrew Prine), two cues from The Outer Limits were reworked and re-arranged, one from Don't Open Till Doomsday and one from The Borderland.

In Decision (episode 7, guest starring Tim O'Connor), one slow mysterious and one brief tense cues later re-arranged on the pilot of The Invaders during the discovery of Bud's Diner by tired Vincent and, later on, Vincent's fight against Sheriff Lou Carver in Kinney at night are heard.

In Interlude (episode 10, guest starring Dana Wynter), one original torn-inside and love cue reworked later on The Love War and A Name for Evil is heard.

Just a few examples…



PS: The last season 1 of The Outer Limits aired on May 1964 and the first season 1 episode of Twelve O'Clock High aired on September 1964.





The love cue from The Love War.

My holy grails would be The Invaders and Stoney Burke, particularly since a lot of the cues I wanted to hear on The Rat Patrol CD were tracked from Burke. LL Land??

In addition, I have some old recordings from both Probe and The Immortal ... and they are very good as well. Perhaps a multi-CD compilation would be a potential way to go, though I know rights might be an issue.

"Stoney Burke" is the center of Frontiere's 1960's television corpus.

"Stoney Burke" music was re-injected in many future series: "The Outer Limits", "The Fugitive", "The Rat Patrol".

Train Robbers if it could be found. Tadlow could re-record it perhaps. I wonder if the manuscripts are available?

The Frontiere score I want the most is Chisum. I saw the film when it came out and always liked the score and film too. Is this music lost?

Like others, would like to see The Train Robbers and Stoney Burke.
