You have inadvertently got the correct title: The Man on Lincoln's Nose.

That's me - Mr. Inadvertent!

I'm also curious to know if there were any other major differences in Lehman's first draft - that script is just a model of storytelling perfection, and it'd be really neat to see how it evolved into its final form.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this release - can't wait to hear it in full!

This brief video sums up my feelings about this release quite accurately.

The track 23 seems to be a “cohesive suite” of six separate cues, in pure Special Castration style. WOW! roll eyes

No troll-feeding here. This is exactly the way it should be done. They may be separate cues for technical purposes, but they make one cohesive piece of music. To turn your analogy around, to separate them would be like separating one's penis from one's body. And I could do without that.


Well, you can anyway merge what you want in the way you want. (that's your taste.) I cannot separate anything because, once again, the intrada-soup has been made.

If I may vent for a moment...it takes a special kind of psycho to obsess over, of all things, a film music label. And it takes a special kind of psycho to infiltrate FSM 5, count them, 5 times in 3 days under hidden IPs and phony email addresses, running around farting out ignorance and hiding like a coward. Much as I love the Internet, it's this kind of insanity that the cyber environment breeds and feeds. What a small person it must take to be that kind of a psycho. It's not even an interesting kind of psycho. I feel like I need a giant net around here.

The Ledge... One of my all-time favourite cues !

Congratulations, Intrada. A must buy....

A question about the very sweet love theme as presented in the track "Conversation Piece."

In the Herrmann recording, the 1st and 2nd notes of the melody sound just after the beat, while the third note sounds before the beat.

In the McNeely version, all 3 notes sound right on the beat.

Does anyone know if Herrmann was giving the soloist some freedom on his recording, or was it written in the score this way?

Excellent question I have always wondered myself... I don't know the proper answer though but I can say I prefer that particular Herrmann's touch with its kind of desperate mood...

I also can't rearrange the first movement of Beethoven's 5th, or the song "Yellow Submarine," or any other whole, complete piece of music. Your point is nonsensical. Or would you prefer that these CDs come with each bar of music isolated as an individual track so we can arrange it however we choose?

I have finally convinced you! Victory is mine!

Wait…

Assume that any posts in this thread from someone who registered at the forum tonight are from the same fool. I look forward to blocking him again in about 3 minutes.

I'm a longtime fan of the film and the soundtrack, even though I've always delayed getting the score.

Ordered!!

So what are we doing ... keep the Johnson for dynamic range, keep the McNeely for faithfulness and completeness, and replace the Rhino with the Intrada? Is that what we're all doing?

I never had the Johnson and was tempted but haven't gotten the McNeely. I've been satisfied with the Rhino for years but I may just take the plunge here. Excellent score for excellent movie...

Audio samples sound great. Can't wait until I'm spinning this baby in a few days. Recently I played the Mt. Rushmore sequence with the isolated score track for my film studies class. Their utter boredom was palpable. What is wrong with these Millennials? Oh well - it's one of Bernard Herrmann's best, and nobody has been able to top this original performance. Thank you, Intrada!

I ordered it automatically, before listening to any clips. Now I've listened to them, there seems to be a lot of variation in relative volume levels between cues, assuming the clips are giving an accurate impression. Or am I imagining things?

The Guardian just published an opinion piece about the movie very recently, as part of their continuing "My Favorite Hitchcock" series, so there's another neat bit of synchronicity.

The early draft is very long and has some very superfluous dialogue, which was all trimmed, plus a lot of banal dialogue that was replaced by brilliant dialogue. But as a template it's very close - the structure is all there. Every change was for the better. It's a fascinating read though, and many of the film's classic lines are there. Sometimes there's a word change that makes all the difference in the world.

George Kaplan was originally George Rosen.

Lester Townsend was originally Lester Tomlinson

Vandamm was originally Mendoza.

Each name change was for the better, obviously.
