JBA: Could never understand why it was touted this set was "complete."

The HANGOVER SQUARE is only about some 20 mins. or so.

If you want more of it, you have to access other sources...


GK: All FOX had. The other "sources" are exactly that.


I need to ask a question about that. Between the Tsunami CD and collectors' tapes, there are at least 15 other HANGOVER SQUARE cues out there, almost the complete background score. As Fox is apparently the legal owner of this music, and these collectors' tapes and the Tsunami CD were therefore made from materials that actually, in a sense, belong to Fox, was it not possible for Varese to incorporate cues from these other sources? I am a not a lawyer - I do not know the intricacies of things like this. I am asking this out of curiosity.

A quick note about the extended finale of THE MAN IN THE GREY FLANNEL SUIT:

It's already been mentioned here that a giant part of the End Title is dialed out in the film. If you want to see how it would have worked, start the End Title from the CD right after Lee J. Cobb says "No charge" in the last scene in his office, and watch how the music flows right along with the editing of the film, and changes at key points (like Cobb's last exchange with Peck, Peck outside, Peck getting in the car, etc.), all building up to the wonderful crescendo, instead of it popping up out of nowhere, as it does in the film.

Any idea why Herrmann did not receive a "proper" Oscar statuette in 1942? It's hard to make out in the following picture, but that's not an "Oscar Oscar". I find this odd, because E. W. Korngold a few years prior received the statuette.



According to the www.oscars.org website:

"Due to a metal shortage during World War II, Oscars® were made of painted plaster for three years. Following the war, the Academy invited recipients to redeem the plaster figures for gold-plated metal ones."

Hope this helps.

Best 400 smackers ever spent on a CD set!


Yep, my sentiments exactly.

Of those, I have Jane Eyre, Hangover Square, and Day the Earth Stood Still (plus the original Varese release of the expanded Egyptian). The reissues of Egyptian and Day the Earth Stood Still have some adjustments made to the sound while the Hangover Square album has additional music not heard on the box set. I’m not entirely sure, but I think the other ones are straight reissues of the masters used for the box set.

Thank you very much for your reply.

Are these sound adjustments of The Egyptian and Day the Earth Stood Still significant or slight?

I believe that Kritzerland's BENEATH THE 12 MILE REEF improved upon the version heard in the Fox Box. Less "flutter," I think.

And the LLL release of The Egyptian sounds stunning and comes in an equally stunning package, plus you get the full score, not just Herrmann's parts.

Just bought the FSM version ( though I am quite happy with that one smile )
