It's been many years since I've seen this film, but I recall the things I admired of the film. Greer Garson's portrayal of Eleanor Roosevelt, Ralph Bellamy as Franklin, and FRANZ WAXMAN'S score to the film. Any tapes or recordings of the music ever found or released? 1960 was a very long time ago, and since no soundtrack was ever released, I don't hold out much hope. However, the new Intrada Waxman Box-set has recordings much older.

Dave, SUNRISE AT CAMPOBELLA exists as a small (6:29 ) suite on the old Preamble CD containing suites from THE KENTUCKIAN, DOWN TO THE SEA IN SHIPS, DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, and IN LOVE AND WAR.

This was wonderfully conducted in very faithful performances by Fred Steiner with the National Philharmonic Orchestra. The CAMPOBELLO suite consisted of the "main title", "Hyde Park", "Ten Years Wiser & End Cast" cues.

Don't know how widely available it might be at various on-line sources but there is a reasonably priced copy on eBay at the moment:

Was Preamble the label that released 'The Best Years of Our Lives'?

I agree. They are excellently conducted, played (by the orchestra), and recorded performances of all of the scores on the Preamble disc. That is especially true of Sunrise at Campobello and The Kentuckian.

I hope CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS box-set is a glowing success for Intrada since bringing it to fruition took so much effort and time. Perhaps Intrada will consider doing a Franz Waxman at WB box-set that will include whatever music is availabe from SUNRISE AT CAMPOBELLO and MISTER ROBERTS.
