As much as I like the upgrades, I am always more excited about scores that have their world premieres on CD. To me that's just part of human nature.

I agree Cody. I most am looking forward to the 4 Victor Young when ready etc. Of course some people don't have the first Demetrius etc.

But, I sure would like a much longer Soldier of Fortune. smile

And don't forget:

DEMETRIUS AND THE GLADIATORS has one of my favorite all-time great movie lines:

After stalwart but prissy Christian Victor Mature has spurned her advances, corrupt, sensual Susan Hayward calls the Praetorian Guard to escort him back to the arena, but, before they leave, she puts her arms on his shoulders, looks him in the eye, and intones:

"When the truth is ugly, only a lie can be beautiful."


Story of my life....

It would be nice if Capstan was available for $50 for home editing enthusiasts. It would keep me amused for months, going through all my old wow-ridden scores and fixing them.

Victor Young, for sure....hopefully some '40s in addition to the '50s.!

.....And all we have now of Friedhofer's score is S L IER OF F RT NE. smile

Listening to the samples now and it's definitely a buy.

Those violin and harp in the "At the Pottery / The Gladiator’s Party" sample is great but the ethereal sound of "Temple of Isis" has won me over.

Speaking of Freidhofer, how about another go at In Love and War.

What is available is great but I think its less than half the score, and some really great stuff is missing.

A redone Prince Valiant would be cool.

Finding the missing pieces to Newmans Prince of Foxes would be a dream come true.

These are great pipe dreams, while saying thanks for Demetrius.

Whoever is responsible, get Diary of Anne frank out this year!!!!

While we are talking about Mr.Friedhofer, how about a world premiere release from the Fox vaults of THREE CAME HOME. A beautiful score.

.....How often do we have examples of a famous Golden Age composer scoring the sequel to another famous Golden Age composer's work and prominently incorporating their thematic material? I have a hard time coming up with another example.....


Well....we have Miklos Rozsa interpolating Herbert Stothart's themes from MRS. MINIVER into the later sequel, THE MINIVER STORY after Stothart's death.

Well...that's true, but I think in the case of The Robe and Demetrius we have far superior scores.

And don't forget the music of Hans Salter and Frank Skinner was used by each other throughout the 1940s and even the 1950s.

Thanks for the mention of Capstan, Basil. I hadn't realised it even existed.

Let's see, Mike has grappled with Tora, Tora, Tora and Demetrius - two FSM titles to have received special re-entrant treatment. Now, I wonder what the software could possibly do for Morituri? It's like the sausage machine problem. You want evenly shaped sausages to be output, not fat ones and thin ones haphazardly interspersed.

It would be interesting to digest a newly seasoned Morituri. Don't you think?

The samples are wonderful. I recall Victure Mature in this and how exotic looking he was. He had a very interesting look and I think was a bit underappreciated as an actor. Susan Hayward was a timeless beauty and a young Ann Bancroft was stunning as well. Cannot wait to add to my collection. Another bullseye Bruce.

The next release may or may not be of interest to folks here - certainly it would be of interest to ME. It's an album I produced several years ago that's been OOP for some time - it's really fun.
