Just popped in my DVD of O. Henry's Full House and that is indeed the main title.

Mr. bruce - are you saying the upcoming release is O Henrys Full House.

Two best segments -
the Last Leaf - awesome scoring front to back, especially great theme for the old painter, a theme that sounds like sometihing from Anne Frank.

Gift of the Magi, - this segment uses the love theme that Newman first used in theBluebird, later reused as themain theme in This Above All, the finale of Leave Her to Heaven, and the love theme n Man Called Peter.
Twice in gift Newman attaches an extension of the theme which becomes the theme for the gift itself. Awesome score.
Does this score exist in that early multiple mike stereo?

The score from O HENRY'S FULL HOUSE would make a S-P-E-C-T-A-C-U-L-A-R release. That's definitely my kind of music and I hope an instant sellout for Bruce. A world premiere, yippee !

It is indeed O. Henry's - congratulations to those who guessed. It is indeed a gorgeous score, I believe it is indeed complete and The Last Leaf is indescribably beautiful - and it is indeed in that push-pull early stereo. It has a companion score on the CD, too, which is also wonderful. Conducted by Newman but different composer.

Wow! I just looked at this topic: O. Henry's Full House!

I always liked both film and score for over 50 years now. It's a beautiful score to be sure. This reminds me why I pretty much gave up current films over 30 years ago. Can't wait for it.
Many thanks Bruce! smile

Now that others mentioned it, it does sound like a Victor Young score to a John Ford western.

I'm surprised no guesses on the second score.

1950s? Friedhofer? Harline?

Could the other composer be Cyril Mockridge ?

Could the score be the several-times-asked-for Way of a Gaucho? Newman conducted that...

Will this include the source cue from the restaurant scene . . .



. . . a much-discussed waltz by Czibulka?

Thanks Bruce, what a great cd this will be.

Actually, a friend emailed me wishing it was Luck of the Irish, so I thought I would guess that score. My dad was Irish and he liked this film and any other Irish films too. I'm greatly looking forward to this cd! smile

Mr. Preston Neal Jones is going to be thrilled by this!

Wonder where he is......


It's funny. Just today I was thinking about what Bruce could release soon and THE LUCK OF THE IRISH popped into my mind at that moment. But then I started to think of the delivery date in time for St. Patrick's Day and realized he couldn't make it in time. Obviously he's been planning this for quite awhile. What a GREAT double-bill!!!

Busy writing the liner notes, which are due in a few days smile

I'm told this is pretty complete - we left off some of the endless mono iterations of Camptown Races, and a few source music things - but we do have the discussed waltz. CD will run close to seventy-nine minutes.

DEAR JOE CAPS --

Yes, I'm slaving away on the liner notes, and you have contributed to them with your knowledgeable insights into The Last Leaf. May I credit you as "Film Music Expert, Joe Caps"?

AND -

On a similar note -- do you happen to know if the beautiful Main Title theme under discussion had its origin in any earlier Newman opus? I have a vague memory of reading somewhere, many years ago, (perhaps in Films in Review), that this tune appears in BELLE STARR...

St. Patrick's Day may be appropriate, but my heart will always hear this score -- especially that heart-breaking Main Title -- as Christmas music. For Bruce to bring O. HENRY and LUCK OF THE IRISH -- and wait till you hear that one! -- into the limelight is one of the greatest early Christmas presents imaginable. Thanks again, maestro!

Hey Bruce,

With today's technology able to bring us about wonderful restorations of scores such as Demetrius, The Egyptian, 12 Mile Reef and others, any chance of the same treatment being applied to scores such as Conrack or Paper Chase, which especially for Conrack it would be nice to see some additional cues get released. And while we're on the subject of Williams at Fox, how about the film tracks of Cinderella Liberty? Actually, that all sounds like it might make a nice set together...
