WINGED VICTORY is a very rare Fox film. Sgt.David Rose is credited with the music.

Are there songs on this CD ?

You know, I'm listening to it now and I do believe there are!




We know now that Twilight Time has encountered clearance problems in releasing the announced Blu-ray of CENTENNIAL SUMMER.

Could this be a CD of Jerome Kern's delightful score for the film instead?

Well, if it was that would be a miracle, wouldn't it? Jerome Kern's final score, along with all of Alfred Newman's unbelievable and magical underscoring. That would have ME dancing a jig - over seventy-eight glorious minutes of it.

For those who are worried - there are seven Kern songs - the rest of the album are Newman's wonderful adaptations of Kern and his own beautiful music - it's one of the most magical things ever.

It truly IS a miracle.....not only to have this rare, but lovely, score, but to have ANY musical from any of our usual CD companies these days!

You may dance a jig if you like, Mr. Bruce, but I'll stick to a two-step or a waltz as I dance all through the night, tonight, and then tomorrow......"All Through The Day."

I call on all Golden Agers who love old musicals to snap this one up, giving Bruce a reason to add occasional musicals to his release schedules in the future.

An absolutely wonderful CD. Thanks so much, Bruce. It is top-tier Tiomkin all the way - even with all the interpolating.

Yes, Bob. I listened to WONDERFUL LIFE again last evening; I've played it many times since I received it.

The score, as originally written by Tiomkin, seems more integrated and thoughtful than what now appears in the film, and though what is in the film works, on its level, it would have been interesting to hear this full original score within the film. It seems to have much more dramatic depth.

The transfer and mastering of the CD, knowing the legends of the sub-standard quality of the original acetates, makes this an even more miraculous event. One of the really top Golden Age releases of the year, I'd say.

As for the "song" in the bonus cues, I read somewhere that this was prepared, not only as a demo, but as a radio promo for broadcast in relation to the release of the film. At first I thought the unknown vocalist sounded a little like Kate Smith, but it wasn't much further in that I realized it was a tenor of the old style.

I wonder if this vocalist was an uncredited routine demo singer of the day, or someone better known who was picking up a little "gig" with the hopes that it might develop further. My first thought was that it might be someone like Gene Austin, who, in the 20s and early 30s was one of the top male vocalists in the country. But I haven't heard any old/ancient recordings by Austin in so long that I can't really remember the style of his voice. I suspect that one day we'll eventually find out who the mysterious singer is.

This CD seems to have sold out quite quickly. A good prospect for a reissue some years down-the-road......

Well, luckily this appeals across the board to Kritzerland's musical theater folks - but I want to stress that Newman's work here is the equal of any of his classics of that era - it's just a wonderful job for which he was nominated for an Oscar.

Damn it, I totally missed this. I guess because I don't come on here too often [I do like it here, I just have a busy life]. Do you think it might be reissued?

The CD is seventy-eight minutes - probably half or more of that is instrumental. Even the songs have long instrumental lead-ins and outs and middle sections.

I'll be there for CENTENNIAL SUMMER when it is posted on the Kritzerland website. Alfred Newman is the reason. Very curious about the forthcoming western. Bruce,I know I am jumping the gun,but can you just tell us if it's from Paramount or Fox. I promise to control my curiousity beyond that.

I guess we will know in a few weeks. I'll buy any Paramount western!

If possible, I hope you will consider doing The Furies and Nevada Smith. (Both Paramount)

Have a nice day! smile

Hi Cody, back in the 1940s were your parents ever in Boston? Just kidding ..... smile

Yes indeed, I sure would love a proper 2 cd set of Duel in the Sun. It's a massive and very colorful score. A favorite Tiomkin of mine. I guess there is always hope.

O wow, thanks!! There doesn't seem to be an email-to-other-members option on this site though unless I'm having a really dumb day, which is possible. Do I just send an email on the Krizterland site?
