Kritzerland has so far offered us discs of Franz Waxman and Victor Young at Paramount.

Who is next?

Let this thread be for some amusing speculations. smile

My first pick of the next so-and-so @ Paramount is Daniele Amfitheatrof:

  • THE MOUNTAIN (1956)
  • SPANISH AFFAIR (1957)
  • THAT KIND OF WOMAN (1959)
  • HELLER IN PINK TIGHTS (1960)
    +
  • Amfi's uncredited music for THE DESPERATE HOURS


    OK.

    Who's next?

    David Raksin's score for CARRIE [1952]

    Aaron Copland's score for THE HEIRESS

    Hugo Friedhofer's scores for NO MAN OF HER OWN

    THUNDER IN THE EAST

    ACE IN THE HOLE
    Georges Auric's score for ROMAN HOLIDAY


    The western score from Paramount that I would like to see released next would be Franz Waxman's score for THE FURIES. I am hoping that will be next from Kritzerland. It has a powerful main theme. Of course, I would also be happy with THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE or NEVADA SMITH. We shall see in a few weeks.

    Most welcome would be:

    The Court Jester - has a fine underscore by Victor Schoen.

    The Greatest Show on Earth Victor Young & songs

    Some of the scores from the later Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis movies ...
    Artists & Models, Hollywood or Bust, Pardners, Living it Up,etc.

    A STEREO 'Omar Khayyam' would be nice too.

    I would like to include Goldsmith's "In Harm's Way" but the tapes are lost. However, as an alternative, I would like to see Friedhofer's "Ace In The Hole" released.

    Hugo Friedhofer's scores for NO MAN OF HER OWN

    THUNDER IN THE EAST

    ACE IN THE HOLE


    This is what I'd like to witness, too!

    A Hugo Friedhofer @ Paramount disc.

    Guys such as John Davis (tape transfers) and James Nelson (digital remastering for albums) would know if this is happening because they're the ones who work on projects like these.

    Perhaps even Mike Matessino is/was involved during recording elements' restoration processing.

    Next from my mind ... Alessandro Cicognini at Paramount. (assuming he was ever in California in the first place) smile

  • BLACK ORCHID (1958)
  • IT STARTED IN NAPLES (1960)
  • THE PIGEON THAT TOOK ROME (1962)

    .....Hugo Friedhofer's scores for NO MAN OF HER OWN

    THUNDER IN THE EAST

    ACE IN THE HOLE


    This is what I'd like to witness, too!

    A Hugo Friedhofer @ Paramount disc......



    Plus the Friedhofer score for the otherwise unmentioned Alan Ladd, Dorothy Lamour, Robert Preston 1947 film, WILD HARVEST, directed by Tay Garnett. I've heard that the score is quite good (I suppose considering that it's just one year away from THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES) though I've never seen the film.

    It might also be interesting to hear Hugo's underscore for the Bing Crosby-Jane Wyman-Ethel Barrymore film, JUST FOR YOU. (The songs, of course, would likely be tied up because of the Crosby-Decca contract, but the score itself might be releasable.)

    Has anyone (yet) ever officially released the complete soundtrack underscore alone for any Golden Age musical??? Seems like a new avenue for Soundtrack CD score releases.

    Well, you know the answer to that question - we just did.

    Well, you know the answer to that question - we just did.




    Of course you did. As did most of George Feltenstein's MGM Rhino discs, etc.

    Obviously I didn't ask the question correctly, though I thought saying "alone" would suffice.
    And I certainly didn't want to reference CENTENNIAL SUMMER which, from the sound clips, appears to be breathtaking.

    What I'm suggesting is that where the soundtrack songs are A PROBLEM (Sinatra, Crosby, etc)
    because the artists are tied to contracts with other companies, would it be possible to release, for example, the underscore (MINUS the vocal sections with their orchestral beds) for JUST FOR YOU, HERE COMES THE GROOM, ANYTHING GOES (1956), WITH A SONG IN MY HEART, THE STUDENT PRINCE, etc. etc......? Good TCF examples reflecting this problem (and possible solution) would be SAY ONE FOR ME, APRIL LOVE, CALL ME MADAM, etc.

    In other words, the score runs through the main title to the first song---the song vocal and orchestral background for the song is dropped---the score cues continue to the next song---the next song vocal and orchestral background are dropped---and the score cues continue in this way to the end of the film. Thus the whole CD release for the given musical is orchestral only---but the actual vocal songs and their individual underscore is missing.

    This would be a sad reflection on each score as a musical entity, but at least it would get the score---in excellent quality---out there and those of us who might want to hear the score alone could do so but those of us who are enterprising could also reassemble a pretty good musical CD for ourselves without dialog overlays and picking up the vocalized songs from a video.

    As time goes on this seems the only way we're going to get even a piece of the vast majority of the musicals we'd like.

    The CENTENNIAL SUMMER thread saddens me greatly because it's obvious that a number of people---even some who I'm really surprised about---are buying the CD only for Alfred Newman's scoring---not the vocalized songs. (It's also somewhat weird because quite a lot of the underscore is based ON the Kern songs---a procedure Newman often followed in doing his orchestral underscore sequences for musicals---extrapolating the song melodies and interpolating them into his own scoring. He was a master at this. One example which is really exceptional in this is his work on THAT LADY IN ERMINE, a so-so film but one which is enveloped by Newman's gorgeous underscore.)

    Oh, well. A voice crying in the wilderness, I know....... smile

    But....thanks for CENTENNIAL SUMMER!.....and now we return to COMPOSERS AT PARAMOUNT.

    I love Kern’s songs too, M. It’s a gorgeous score....one that I never thought we would have.
    Newman’s underscore is an incredible bonus.

    Would that we could have the same for “South Pacific” ! smile

  • OFF LIMITS (1953)
  • BLUEPRINT FOR ROBBERY (1961)

    Those are all excellent suggestions, ToneRow. The Leith Stevens is particularly exciting...

    Well ToneRow, I don't know about PEKING EXPRESS, but, according to a recent La-La Land posting, WILD IS THE WIND is coming out as a 2-disc set from La-La Land in August!

    A lot of great suggestions here.

    I'd love to see them all, especially The Furies and Nevada Smith.

    Would like The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance too. Mockridge's main title is similar to the main title to The Bravados.

    First though ........ Victor Young at Paramount Vol. 2 ! smile
