Just saw this information in SAE's newsletter this morning:

"We are pleased to announce that the estate of Nick Redman, Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker, soundtrack producer, and co-founder of Twilight Time, has selected Screen Archives Entertainment to liquidate his entire extensive collection of Film Music CDs.

Details to be announced soon."

Very sad news overall, of course, but it’d be a privilege to have something of Nick’s in the collection.

The sad thing about this--other than the fact that our dear Nick is gone--is that even the families of film score luminaries don't have an interest in this stuff.

R.I.P., Nick Redman.



I'm thankful the estate appreciates us enough to donate it; I got to say, if most of us died, one or two the following would happen to our collection:

1. Put up on eBay.

2. Thrown away.


Make a will, people!

Sad indeed, but personal treasures are usually junk to everyone else. Our stuff will be tossed in the bin or sold second hand at a discount.

Or end up in boxes in some thrift store.

Of course, it would be better if it were some thrift store in the L.A. area, I guess, where film music buffs are more plentiful.

And of course it remains to be seen how much of his stuff will actually move even among us for whatever reasons. However it is nice his prestige is giving his collection a shot few others will have.

Surely there's a film school or library that would be able to save the collection for posterity/? It may not mean much to average Joe's but it would mean a lot to film students, surely? Do they study film scoring these days? Or did it fade away like screenplay writing (judging by recent films)?

Now that I think about it, should be donated to MV of LLL. Make it so!

I've actually wondered about that too at one time... who's gonna get all my CDs? Or who should get them? Or want them? :-) I think I hold on for them a little bit longer, but who knows, I could die today on my way home.

I fully expect my wife to get a dumpster and toss all my bullshit when I die. If it means nothing to her, it's just stuff. I have a few boxes of "money items" but even those are probably not nearly worth the time and effort it would take to list and sell them.

I got the Redman Estate email too and all I felt was sad. I didn't know him, but his passion impacted my life.

Nick's estate has certainly woken me up to the fact that when the Grimm Reaper has his eye on me, I will not allow my treasured collection of over 1000 Cd's be binned or given to some thrift store and will make it plain in my will that I wish my collection to be sold on this very site, where they will be sold to a much appreciated audience.
God willing, I will be around for some time yet but as unfortunately my family have no interest whatever in my film music passion, I will now make sure that my 'Musical Books' will go to a good home.
R.I.P Nick.

A better more fitting donation would be Bruce Kimmel at Kritzerland.

This....I was going to post nearly the EXACT same words.

Sad business to even think about.

To the posters above, do people really "throw away" things like CDs? Don't people donate things like these to libraries (academic ones particularly) or thrift shops? Just curious.

I've made sure my wife knows how valuable my collection is in monetary terms so hopefully she'll do the right thing when the time comes.

Speaking only for myself, I go "Joseph Stalin" every few years and purge massive amounts of things (CDs, books, etc.,). CDs are nearly impossible to sell here--you guys seemingly have everything except them most nsanely obscure items-whereas local libraries assume a "beggars being choosers" attitude and refuse many of the items I've offered them in the past.

Best not to speculate on these things. SAE will announce what's what soon.

The other news I can share is that Nick's extensive collection of rare memorabilia is going to be auctioned at Profiles in History in November. I arranged for that to happen and we're hoping it all finds various good and loving homes. Unbelievable stuff, really - especially the Peckinpah memorabilia. I'll keep everyone here posted as we get closer to that date.

I beg your pardon, but his widow, Julie Kirgo, has written liner notes for all of the Twilight Time releases and numerous score CDs. She is her own treasure to this beloved avocation of ours.

Yes, of course.
