Bruce, you might be right on all points there...but i think the real story would be a bit harsh for viewers to swallow.

Also, i always forget how they explain Pele being there in the camp. I haven't seen the film in a while. What nationality was he meant to be in the film? Not Brazilian surely?

TallGuy, i'll have to check out this Shostakovich, lad. He seems a bit useful.

He was a qualified referee in his youth, by all accounts. But then, he did have poor eyesight...

Would that make Barry Knight the Shostakovich of referees?

Shurely shome mishtake.

Regardless of referees, the film, and the actual reality, Conti's music is excellenti!

You can't end a sports movie without finishing the game.


Unless you are Antonioni!

Pele's character's nationality was from Trinidad, though Brazil did take part in and sent troops during WWII.

Mr. Banning,

When are these discs being shipped out? I ordered mine the day of the announcement and I'm getting a little anxious to hear it. Thanks!

I've been playing this a cd a lot in the last few days since i got it. It's total quality. Makes me want to a/play football b/fight the Nazi war-machine, and c/watch the film.

I forgot how infectious the march actually is, and the great moments when Pele is doing the multiple-angled bicycle-kick.

Very pleased i have this great music. Only my second Conti cd.

It's really a silly film, but a guilty pleasure. Conti gave it a score that made it memorable.
Not unusual for him.

The Pele' "kick" is a highlight of the score.
The long awaited legit cd is here.

An astonishing story.

I was hoping that one of the clips would be the end credits, although I know that Conti used the final movement from Shostakovich's 5th symphony note for note.

Undaunted, I listened to the other clips - both track one and track four quote the notorious 10-minute march from the first movement of DSCH's 7th symphony. It'd be interesting to get this CD if only to spot any other such references.


I also immediatly noticed the references to Shostakovich's 5th & 7th and some imitations of PATTON and BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI.
This score is very enjoyable, Conti particularly knows how to write fanfares.

But what really disappoints me is that the liner notes don't even mention Shostakovich's music quotations. I find it really un-professional... and it is not the first time I am disappointed with PROMETHEUS liner notes.

Saw VICTORY a few months ago. Conti's score really amps up the impact of the film. Love this march:



And of course, the main title:

We're twins, Bob. I am not a big lover of marches, but I LOVE this march and the whole score.

This was one of the 1st world premieres I ran in 1981 at the start of my projection career so very fond memories of the score
