"Samson and Delilah" would be perfect for this time of the year - it would be here by Easter smile Leaning out of the window, I know, but it would be a dream: "For Whom The Bell Tolls"

So Bruce, we are talking 1940s Paramount?

Unconquered?
The Blue Dahlia?
State of the Union?
The Palm Beach Story?

No westerns, correct? (per 2-13-14 topic)

I know you are a busy man, Bruce, but can tell us whether these scores are from Republic films ?

Not Republic - all Paramount.

OK, let's try these : THE UNCONQUERED -not really a western since it takes place in the Allegheny Mountains and the Ohio Valley.
CHINA
THE STORY OF DR. WASSELL
MINISTRY OF FEAR
AND NOW TOMORROW
A MEDAL FOR BENNY
KITTY
MASQUERADE IN MEXICO
THE BLUE DAHLIA
THE SEARCHING WIND
CALCUTTA
I WALK ALONE
BEYOND GLORY
Bruce, are any of the 3 in that list ? Many of those movies I have not seen in years. It is Victor Young and therefore a must have.

Has anyone mentioned GULLIVER'S TRAVELS?

I'd love to get this score on CD...

(Doubtful it exists, but I'd love to get any of it that's available.)

These must be relatively short 1950s scores.

Could at least one or two of them be.....

THE COUNTRY GIRL

KNOCK ON WOOD

LITTLE BOY LOST

FOREVER FEMALE

???

John Archibald - funny you should mention the Decca Gullivers Travels. I saw at blu-ray.com that the upcoming Gullivers Blu will include that Decca recording as an extra !!!

It's incredible to believe that a Victor Young score could be rejected,but could these be scores to films that wound up having a different composer at the time of their release ?

Nope, all three scores are in the films and they are really good.

OK, here's a second set of possibilities:

NO TIME FOR LOVE

AND THE ANGELS SING

PRACTICALLY YOURS

BRING ON THE GIRLS

YOU CAME ALONG

OUR HEARTS WERE GROWING UP

SUDDENLY IT'S SPRING

THE IMPERFECT LADY

MISS TATLOCK'S MILLIONS

It's actually a very nice recording, conducted by Young, using the film arrangements, and with some of the background score. There is no main title, the voice of Gabby in his songs is different, and the man who sings "All's Well" sounds like a typical 30's tenor. But the "We're All Together Now" includes all the additional lyrics, which in the film are background for a scene with the 3 spies. "Bluebirds in the Moonlight" is a little different from the film, but "I Hear a Dream," followed by an interpolated finale, uses the same choral work as the soundtrack. And, of course, Jessica Dragonette does her own singing as the Princess, though I'm not as sure of the man singing the Prince.

But, actually, a far better recording of the score than I'd expected.

(We actually had this 78 set when I was a kid, but, according to my mother, we threw the disks out the window to delight in their smashing. I still kept the empty slipcase for years. Long gone. Ah, Youth!)
