With a few film scores being released that were written, recorded, and then not used, I was wanting to know if this ever happened to Basil Poledouris ? I know of Breakdown which of course has already been released (and Basil re-scored), but are there any others ? Since we are starting to see unused scores like Barry's "The Golden Child" and soon to be released "First Love" (and I am hoping for Barry's Year Of The Comet and Goodbye Lover) I was just curious. Basil was such a talented composer. Way to go Intrada, Flight Of The Intruder is great !

According to Mr. Boggan's website (which may or may not be taken with a grain of salt):

Rejected:
Defiance (1980)

Supposedly:
Uncommon Valor (1983) (was paid by the film's producer for his involvement but is unknown if he recorded anything)
Why Me? (1990)
D-Tox (2002) (was attached, but unknown if he recorded anything)
Young Black Stallion (2003) (Poledouris said he was doing the film but unknown if he recorded anything)

Total Recall is listed as supposedly rejected but it's well known that Poledouris pulled out due to scheduling conflicts with The Hunt for Red October so I don't think he recorded anything. Poledouris also apparently recorded a demo theme for an unmade film called Bunyan and Babe.

"D-Tox (2002) (was attached, but unknown if he recorded anything)"
-------------------------------------------------------------------
There is a 'promo' about containing what purports to be demos by Poledouris for D-Tox.

"Bunyan and Babe" has been in Production Hell for years. Last word on composer was his protege Christopher Lennert was going to score it, using Bail's theme.

There's also unsolved titles for him like "Operation Dumbo Drop", Executive Decision", "Along Came A Spider", and "Igor".

"D-Tox" demo is covered (just no track titles):

Wasn`t he involved in Murder At 1600 before Chris Young got the gig?

According to his agent Richard Kraft rejection also work in "Dances with loves" that coincided with the composition of "Fligh of Intruder" and especially by his close friendship between him and John Milius. In the end the movie was delayed for several months on U.S. military as ever and on top, was a box office failure.

Yes, that was the rumor on "Murder at 1600" -- I simply forgot to ad it. Probably four dozen or more titles I've forgotten to add.
