Two things worth mentioning about the film:

(a) To fit the WWII footage, WWII technology was used in the initial filming.

(b) The film is based on actual letters from a deceased soldier killed on D-Day, to his parents. Not unlike Zwick's 'Glory' in that respect. That's where the Imperial War Museum came in, that and the real footage.

This just arrived today, and I've finally found a little time listen to some of it. I'm a big admirer of "The Disappearance" (film and score), but "Overlord" is a really magnificent score - the string writing is glorious and transparent, and very English in several spots (there are some interesting gestures that remind me of Arthur Bliss's writing for strings). This one will be getting many repeat listenings over the next few weeks. (And I'm looking forward to spending more appreciable time with the other two in this set.) Additionally, the music does sound quite good, and I'm glad it was rescued in the nick of time - it would have been a shame if the stereo tapes ended up "lost." Thanks to Kritzerland for such a fine job in saving and presenting this hidden gem.

I am assuming that Bruce is not ready for the guessing game on his next release. He probably wouldn't want it to be announced on a week when Intrada has some releases coming up. It's understandable.

Awaiting approvals on two titles, which we'll probably announce together. One is Golden Age, one is Silver Age.

Any chance the Silver Age title is the long-gestating fourth and final Goldsmith title from Kritzerland?

No. I'm beginning to think that won't happen until later in the year.

Both the Silver Age and the Golden Age are world premiere releases. Golden Age has two scores by one composer, Silver Age has one score.

There was a hint that some David Shire was coming soon from the Land of Kritzer. Is the Silver Age premiere from the ever-fertile pen of Shire?

Hmm... world premiere the Golden Age is what I like to hear... has the composer had a previous Kritzerland release?

Hurray for new Shire! Perhaps it's something like "Old Boyfriends," "Straight Time," or "Class of '44"? Is the score something that's been represented on the "David Shire at the Movies" album?

Excited to see what the premiere Golden Age release will end up being. Is it another rescued gem from the Fox vaults?

Indeed.



A double bill of Alfred Newman's Blood and Sand and Mark of Zorro would be somewhat warmly received.

Thanks for the good news Bruce. smile

1.) David Shire, 1970s?

2.) Golden Age: Alfred Newman? Victor Young? Franz Waxman?

Basil, Lukas and others have said The Mark of Zorro is not there at Fox. Maybe Bruce can give us the latest on Zorro.

That's great news! Is it a score for a TV movie?
