“The Juggler” is a 1953 drama film starring Kirk Douglas as Hans Müller as a survivor of the German Nationalsocialist Dictatorship and its extermination program.

The screenplay was adapted by Michael Blankfort from his novel of the same name. It also stars Milly Vitale as Ya'el and Paul Stewart as Detective Karni. Edward Dmytryk was the director, by the way.

Stanley Kramer produced the film, and his regular collaborator, George Antheil, was commissioned to write the score. Arthur Morton orchestrated the music, and Morris Stoloff, head of Columbia Pictures’ music department conducted the studios’ orchestra. The music has not been released on record.


These videos contain 16 selections with Antheil's music.
There's only minor dialogue & some sound effects.
The film contains far more music than approx. 15 min. presented here:


Suite I




Suite II




Suite III

See also some Antheil soundtracks that are, you know, actually available on CD, namely The Pride and the Passion and Dementia.

Antheil had only one soundrack album released in his lifetime.

And as far as I know only one symphonic piece was later rerecorded. It's from The Specter Of The Rose - Ballet Waltz (by Charles Gerhardt with the London Cinema Symphony Orchestra).

I started a thread about Pride and the Passion many years ago, by the way:

For those interested, this thread however is focused on The Juggler's music.

Hi, Bruce, Happily I've long had TPATP, but don't recall seeing any announcement about Dementia. Found it of course at Kritzerland and ordered it just now. I've seen conflicting info about release dates, though. Is it due out in August?

Thnx,

P.

Although I don't have dementia, I do have DEMENTIA, and frankly I had the nagging feeling that I vaguely remembered buying it back in the day, but when I saw that Amazon listed it thusly...

Manufacturer: Kritzerland
Date First Available: June 7, 2021
Label: Kritzerland
ASIN: B096R4M5D7

... I wondered if I was mistaken. Hence the confusion of which I wrote. Thanks for providing the necessary clarity, Stefan!

And now that that's settled --

Thank you, Sehnsuchtshafen, for this thread! THE JUGGLER happens to be one of my very favorite scores. From what I gather, there's little or no hope that the original tracks survive, so until I make my second million and can afford to sponsor a re-recording, it'll have to remain one of my mad dreams.
