Yavar, I always enjoy your thoughts and posts about film music. They're always insightful and informative. I really appreciate the time you spent in providing these advance liner notes. Now I'm intrigued to look into the film. Thanks again!

For those who aren't able to join Sean in watching it on TV, here it is again online, though it seems to be a bit cropped on the top and bottom and isn't the highest quality:

I'm so glad more people are giving this film and score a shot. Your positive replies very much encourage me to keep doing more of these. There are even some non-Goldsmith unreleased titles I want to tackle, like Roy Webb's Sinbad the Sailor. I'd do Jeff Alexander's Support Your Local Sheriff but with Twilight Time releasing it on Blu-ray next month, I hope they've just found score elements for it...

I may not get around to Shamus or Black Patch this week after all, though, because I'm one of two people helping Lukas collect Star Trek 50th Anniversary score requests. smile

Just thought I would bump this thread as sometime in the past year the complete film was uploaded to YouTube -- I have added that to the top of the first post.

I will shortly (finally!) be posting Advance Liner Notes for Jerry's first feature score, Black Patch (1957), which would make a great companion to this score if Intrada or Tribute would like to tackle a Goldsmith rerecording project. (Also, James Fitzpatrick has said he would be more than happy to do these if anyone wants to fund 'em!)

Thought I would bump this again as I updated the first post with time stamps. The YouTube video was taken down but the DailyMotion one is still up for people to view. Looking forward to covering this score soon on The Goldsmith Odyssey (www.goldsmithodyssey.com).

Bumping this thread because we just covered this score -- with many substantial sound clips -- on The Goldsmith Odyssey. We also take about ten minutes to discuss and play Goldsmith's early concert work from the previous year, Toccata for Solo Guitar. My colleague Jens bought the original Laurindo Almeida LP (Contemporary Creations for Spanish Guitar) and had it transferred, so if you are curious about this wonderful early work in its original performance (no offense to Gregg Nestor but I do prefer this version by the artist who commissioned it) you should really check this out:

Enjoy, and do please let us know what you think, either on this board or at mail@goldsmithodyssey.com.

OMGoldsmith! Fellow fans, go to the Intrada forums and vote for this to be their next Kickstarter project -- a TWOFER in fact with both Black Patch AND Face of a Fugitive!

http://www.intrada.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7967

As of right now it's tied for first place!

Update: ahead of even Rozsa and Herrmann now! A note if you want to vote: you will have to join the Intrada forum. Answer to their security question: Red Dawn by Basil Poledouris was the first Intrada album.

We now know the official track titles thanks to the Academy putting them on their website listing of written score holdings in their library. If I have time at some point I will compare them with my own and see about modifying my original "advance liner notes" to feature Jerry's original cue titles.

1a "Main Title," 7 pages
1b "The Prisoner," 8 pages
1c "The Escape," 14 pages
2a "Old Man's Suit," 7 pages
2b "So Long Boy," 12 pages
3a "Company Man," 7 pages
3b "The Meeting," 6 pages
3c "Jake, the Barber," 5 pages
3d "Wanted for Murder," 2 pages
4a "Wanted for Murder (part II)," 2 pages
4b "New Suit," 9 pages
4c "Slow Draw," 5 pages
6a "Buggy Ride," 7 pages
6b "Special Delivery," 10 pages
6c "The Kiss," 15 pages
7a "Bitter Thoughts," 6 pages
7b "Goodbye (part I)," 1 page
8a "Goodbye (part II)," 5 pages
8b "Broken Fence," 6 pages
8c "Friendly Advice," 3 pages
8d "Showdown," 5 pages
8e "Track Down," 9 pages
9a "Track Down (part II)," 18 pages
9c "End Title," 4 pages

Especially since the original written scores still survive in the Academy's library so no "reconstruction by ear" should be necessary, I'm really really hoping that Intrada considers this and Black Patch as their next release, since the option handily won their informal poll last year:
