Additional music by Jerry Goldsmith.


Also, additional music by Leigh Harline, Arthur Morton, and Lyn Murray. I wonder if anyone can identify the few notes that must be Goldsmith's.

I remember reading -- don't remember where -- that Goldsmith worked on the end of it.

I've ordered this Blu mainly because it's the only Elvis Presley film that I've never seen. Interesting to hear about the soundtrack.

Prior to FLEMING STAR is LOVE ME TENDER (1956), perhaps with an even more interesting presence of Presley in the soundtrack. Some additional music of Friedhofer and some others. Also this on a very good Blu Ray.

It's mostly Cyril Mockridge and Irving Gertz (no Lyn Murray), with three cues by Arthur Morton, one by Harline and one by Goldsmith (it's a 1 min. cue called "Pacer's Farewell" near the end of the movie). Song is by Sherman Edwards and another source song is by Sid Tepper.

Mike,
A big thanks for this clarification. I have wondered about Goldsmith's contribution to Flaming Star for many years. Needless to say, it would be wonderful if some label were to release the soundtrack on CD. I am always hopeful in such matters.

I agree that WILD IN THE COUNTRY has a lovely backscore, and I'd love to buy a Blu of it with the score isolated.

This isolated score is what i,m waiting for years.
Thank you Mike Matessino

I hope that "Twilight Time" will eventually release ALL of the early Fox-CinemaScope films to Blu-ray..........

Flaming Star... by far the best movie Elvis Presley starred in... unti just now I did not know Jerry Goldsmith provided a cue for this movie?
Wow, holy cow. In any case, I'd buy a good release.

Are the Elvis vocals included on the isolated score track?

Far be it from me to correct you Mike, since you actually worked on the isolated score track, but I just watched the film and recognized the Goldsmith cue -- first of all, it's not "near the end"...it IS the end, the very final cue of the film, all the way through "The End" appearing on the screen, and it matches up perfectly with the cue title. It's also over two minutes long, unless someone else composed a cue that was seamlessly connected to Goldsmith's...but all of the finale music did sound like Goldsmith to me. A good, dark cue that makes an impression with the rather bleak ending of the film.

The other scoring in the film is decent too, though unsurprisingly it doesn't really have a cohesive identity. Besides the Goldsmith finale, there was an action cue near the end that briefly used some striking counterpoint that made an impression...wonder who wrote that one.

I'm a bit surprised, what with this being recognized as Elvis's best acting role, plus the Goldsmith connection (brief as it is) that this score has never received a CD release. Bruce at Kritzerland hasn't shied away from group-composed scores, and surely this Fox title could move 1000 copies; it could probably be paired with some other short unreleased Fox western score.

If there ever was a release it would be an instant purchase for me Yavar! Two life-long favourites of mine Elvis Presley and Jerry Goldsmith, what a combination! And I have always been a great fan of the films of Don Siegel too! Fingers crossed! After reading the great news from Music Box yesterday concerning the imminent releases of House of Cards and 3 into 2 Won't Go I will still go on believing in miracles!
