Thanks Timmer! Bernstein's America is a great one; I love the Mambo too. I believe you and me are thinking about this in a similar way.

So, I was crashing out on the beach yesterday, and I thought some about the OP. I think the two film scores that probably represent Americanism in its purest form are: 1. Stagecoach; 2. Fort Apache. Both scores are largely based on old American folk songs.

I realize the fellas probably want something specific to the 4th, but I hope everyone can kinda latch on to my perspective here. Anyways, peace, and enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.

Jerry Goldsmith's march from PATTON brings out that Americana feeling in me.

Herrmann's "Williamsburg, The Story Of A Patriot"....also the extremely obscure main-title (which Herrmann also wrote) to the short-lived TV series: "The Americans"
