I would give Shaun Rutherford's left nut to have this score on CD.

Even though it was on AMC today, I did watch, and I was again reminded that a great score can redeem a horrid film like this one.

Thrilling music.

gimme gimme gimme

While I share your enthusiasm for this unreleased Victor Young score, there is nothing that could have redeemed that film (other than an errant bomb from the "upwind" nuclear testing range).

So I wonder how Shaun feels about the price of this music being released? Anything for filmscore fans maybe?


Horrid, wretched movie graced by a wonderful score.

Shaun's sacrifice will be duly commemorated somewhere in the liner notes, of that I have no doubt.

Decca released a two 45 rpm set - each 45 had four selections from the score. Impossible to find. This could be paired with Youngs Samson and Delilah Volume two that was recorded and never released.

This might entail a double sacrifice for poor young Shaun, however...

I watched a good chunk of the movie just to hear Young's stellar score.

I consider that a redeeming quality.

I'd also give Shaun's right nut to have The Tall Men finally issued (Varese -- this means you!)....to get Samson and Delilah...well, that'd mean a gender change for poor Shaun...a sacrifice we all have to make for these scores.

Want to see another movie as bad as this one that also has a good score? I just saw
The Long Ships.
Ewwww to the movie and thumbs up to Radic's main theme. (How could Poiter and Widmark make such muck?)


Poor Shaun. Seems unfair that JJH and Dana want to turn Shaun into Shelly when they too
could make a single digit donation without having to go on Estrogen. wink

ooh, The Long Ships! yes, I want that one, too!
Radic did another score that I liked also, but can't remember right off the bat.

I want to turn Shaun into Shauna, not Shelly.

and I'd give his left KIDNEY to get those Dusan Radic scores!

Wouldn't they have to scrounge up some donations from somewhere to replace the material they removed from Shaun in order to make him truly female, rather than simply neuter? I mean, ovaries don't just spring from nowhere to magically fill testes-shaped voids (though wouldn't it be something if they did??)... wink

I've never seen either of these films, but man, I don't think there's any shortage of, ah, less-than-stellar films with scores that are too good for them; if the entire conversational content of the FSM message boards were confined to discussion of such films and scores, there could still be almost as much chat as there ever is now (heck, this subset of Jerry Goldsmith's filmography alone would probably still have a count running into three digits wink)...

This is a great movie because I am in it! I spent part of my summer working on this movie as an extra riding back and forth waving a sword
and listening to the 2nd unit director yell and scream among other people. I am going back to the area where it was filmed in just a couple of weeks as a matter of fact and will enjoy some memories with family I have not seen in years.
I will admit that the only one that looked more stupied in those outfits than John Wayne was me at 12 years old.

The other movie that Dusan Radic provided a good score for was not a million miles removed from "The Conqueror" !
It was the 1964 Columbia pic. "GENGHIS KHAN", which starred Omar Sharif and Stephen Boyd.

Not one of the great screen Epics, but good fun nonetheless.

You've talked about this before, Joe Caps.

Not only is it impossible to find, in 50 years of film-music collecting, I've never seen a copy, a photo of a copy, or a Decca release number of a copy. Was it ever really pressed or was it an illustration in a pressbook of what ended up being a "phantom" release?

I have seen two copies over the years. ONe was in Page Cooks collection and he played part of it for me one evening.

Dennis, I remember you! You were GREAT! The only redeeming quality in the entire film! I remember leaving the theater thinking, when I film my grand opus, I WANT THAT KID!

Well I'm watching this magnum opus of Howard Hughes tonight for the 1st time --

I guess I should not be enjoying it so much since it is considered one of the worst films of all time -- and some here blasted it -- but it does have a high camp pleasure --- I do wonder how Hayward and Wayne kept a straight face speaking some of the tongue twisting and ,alternatively, banal dialogue they were forced to utter.

It is worth seeing if for nothing else to behold future Oscar winner Susan Hayward do a hootchie kootchie harem dance , gyrating her hips to the best of her ability.. and in the end tossing a sword at the groin of John Wayne - all set to a lovely Victor Young Score! As always , Hayward looks gorgeous through out in many costume changes.

I wish that more of Young's Arabian Nights scores such as this and Omar Khayam and Son of Sinbad were made available on cd.. Anyone ever come across the fabled 45rpm set?

btw, this looks great in Cinemascope and sounds even better in Surround Sound on the Wayne dvd set .

Sadly, Young was the first one involved from the film to die (and NOT from the aftereffects from the "upwind" nuclear tesing range).

Hey, I'm offended and hurt. Deeply, deeply hurt. And confused. Where was I 7 years ago for this?

Since Shaun has gotten married since I posted this, I suppose I only would have access to his right nut, which I would gladly give in order to have this score on CD.

hey, I don't care; they're not my nuts.
