I was thinking about it today. In the last six years a great deal of my Holy Grail's have all seen releases now. Speed, Back to the Future, Independence Day, Lethal Weapon movies, and the Die Hard movies.
All I really have left is GoldenEye, Moonraker, A View to a Kill and The Rock off the top of my head.
It's really amazing to think how many scores have seen the light of day that I thought never would!
So what's still left for you guys? And since La La Land frequents this board, what holy grails do you guys have left over at Triple L?
THE SHINING ALIEN 3 Complete SE7EN Complete A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE Complete BLADE RUNNER Complete PSYCHO  Complete and Original (since the orchestrations are so precise, I will accept a complete score for Danny Elfman's interpretation for the Gus Van Sant remake) THE FLY Complete PANIC ROOM Complete TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY Complete THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS All the music in the TWIN PEAKS Archive on CD
Not released at all: Earth Star Voyager by Lalo Schifrin The Sugarland Express by John Williams Alcatraz (TV score by Andrea Datzman and Chris Tilton) King Kong rejected by Howard Shore Romeo and Juliet rejected by James Horner
I'd like to see expanded to complete format: The Last Starfighter (Soon to be rectified by Intrada!) Starship Troopers Air Force One Willow The Rocketeer Titanic Mission: Impossible (Elfman) Twister Speed 2 Tomorrow Never Dies The Fellowship of the Ring The Two Towers The Return Of The King An Unexpected Journey The Desolation of Smaug The Battle of the Five Armies
and of course: Jaws 2 Dracula (Williams) Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade Hook Jurassic Park Schindler's List The Lost World The Phantom Menace The Patriot A.I. Artificial Intelligence Harry Potter 1 Attack of the Clones Minority Report Harry Potter 2 Harry Potter 3 The Terminal Revenge of the Sith War of the Worlds Memoirs of a Geisha Indiana Jones 4
An AIRPORT box set A JAWS box set Man with the Golden Gun A View to a Kill The World Is Not Enough Thoroughly Modern Millie Dracula's Daughter/Son of Dracula The Towering Inferno (complete and hopefully from better elements)
The Rocketeer (complete) Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (complete) Lonesome Dove (complete/expanded) The Patriot (complete/expanded) Silence of the Lambs (complete/expanded) Horatio Hornblower (BBC TV miniseries from early 2000s)
OBSESSION (complete) has been my main holy grail ever since the release of the 38 minute edit via the Masters of Film Music CD of the 1980's. Now that both original tracks and a rerecording are in the offing, I truly have no other titles that I would describe as a holy grail. However, there are certainly other titles that I would like to have:
any unreleased Bernard Herrmann rerecordings of Herrmann's ENDLESS NIGHT, IT'S ALIVE, and ON DANGEROUS GROUND Steiner: HELEN OF TROY and KING RICHARD AND THE CRUSADERS Hayashi (sp?): THE NAKED ISLAND Rustichelli: THE MINOTAUR, WILD BEAST OF CRETE (reportedly lost)
For me it's pretty much like it is for John Black. I actually have NO HOLY GRAIL left that is still unrealized from my personal list of four I drafted some time in the 1990s (Intrada deleted the last name off my list when they released Charles Bernstein's Mr. Majestyk a few years ago). My runner-ups that I would love to see come true would be though:
THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN (expanded) and THE SPY WHO LOVED ME (score recording)
My adoration of the Bond scores is that crazy that I would also love to hear every sneeze and cough made during any Bond score recording session between 1963 and 1981.
