Let's just say that whichever of the three it is it will make at least some person very happy.

or either of the two french composers (Delerue, Jarre)?


I don't know if by some person Bruce means someone from the board or in general but yes, my first thought was "Maleficio/Delerue connexion". But what about Manderley? REBECCA featured its score with sfx as an isolated track on the LD -- the same way A PLACE IN THE SUN did. History can repeat itself.


Unless I've missed some vital clue, Bruce seems to be releasing from the Paramount catalog lately. "Rebecca" was not a Paramount picture.

I vote for the one by my favorite composer!

Or, another composer will be just fine!

FWIW: Kritzerland is the only label issuing titles I really want/care about these days.

Yes, this is my opinion also. Paramount titles from the 50's and '60's are especially exciting to see.

REBECCA, a Selznick-International picture, is now owned by Disney (via ownership of the ABC Pictures library). They have performed restorations on virtually all of the films in the last 15-or-so years since they acquired the films.

It's my understanding that the original music session units for the Selznick library were trashed by ABC about 25 years ago, though there are selected music/fx tracks still existing.

Unfortunately, of course, music/fx tracks are far from ideal for building a soundtrack CD for any film, unless they can be supplemented with fill-in, music only, tracks or acceptable acetates or random tapes to bypass most of the sound effects.

.....Hello Bruce, Have you decided which of the three will be your next release ?


Just about decided - it's tricky. Guesses can start in a day or two.....




I'll bet "it's tricky" is a klew!!!! smile

Could this release be Roy Webb's music from the 1953 Paramount/George Pal production of HOUDINI???!!!

What a great idea, Manderley! I remember enjoying that movie as a kid (and I guess as a young teen too because I remember recalling Janet Leigh was damn hot). It's one of the films my father recorded onto VHS tape when I was a baby. I keep forgetting about the few films Webb did outside of RKO -- and I shouldn't, as tapes are more likely to exist!

I'd buy Houdini if released, but Bruce, if you release a Sinbad the Sailor album somehow I'll buy THREE copies!

Well, we know Bruce the K has already said he has Newman's THE PLEASURE OF HIS COMPANY in the offing...

I'd also love to see a complete NEVADA SMITH wend its way to us...

Not to mention complete releases of Waxman's SAYONARA, THE NUN'S STORY, and THE SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS...

(All of which were from Paramount, by the way.)

Although, to be honest, whatever Bruce releases, I'll probably be buying it...

(BTW: is there any possibility of real soundtrack releases for either THE COURT JESTER, or ARTISTS AND MODELS? JESTER had a 10-inch at the time of Kaye singing the songs, much in the manner of the 10-inch HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN, but there were never bona fide soundtrack recordings of either. And I'd also LOVE to get music tracks from both GULLIVER'S TRAVELS and HOPPITY GOES TO TOWN. But those 2, I'm sure, will probably linger in the pipe-dream category for years to come, no doubt...)

I might as well jump in here and say that NUN'S STORY and SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS are in the Warner Bros. library, not Paramount, and SAYONARA, which WAS once in the Warners library, was an independently produced film later released on video by Goldwyn/MGM Entertainment.
At this moment, I'm not quite sure where SAYONARA resides, but, in any case, I'd assume the stereo music masters are long gone.

I'm with John here and would love ARTISTS AND MODELS (if Bruce could clear the Martin songs---Capitol?) and also LIVING IT UP, which is the film version of Broadway's HAZEL FLAGG, which was in turn the stage version of Selznick's NOTHING SACRED.

There are so many things yet in the Paramount library to wish for!!! (I wonder what Hugo Friedhofer's score for THUNDER IN THE EAST sounds like today. I haven't seen that film for at least 60 years! Hugo's score for ACE IN THE HOLE/THE BIG CARNIVAL would be of interest, and I'd even like to hear, in conjunction with the Bing Crosby-Jane Wyman songs, his score for JUST FOR YOU.)

Um, John....Sayonara, Spirit of St. Louis and The Nun's Story...were Warner Brothers films.

Actually, Sayonara's ownership is all over the place - and believe me I tried licensing it from who I HOPED owned it. MGM actually owns the cable and video rights (which is why you see it on MGM-HD) but sadly they don't own the music rights - what a shame that is.

What do you want from me? Coherence?

Oh well.

Speaking of Hugo Friedhofer---and I just WAS---I wonder if Bruce has looked into the score for the 20th Fox-1950 film with Claudette Colbert, THREE CAME HOME. It's a WW2 drama set in Borneo as I recall, and it has several exotic themes and moments which are certainly predecessors of Friedhofer's score for THE RAINS OF RANCHIPUR. I remember being impressed with this when I first saw it several years ago.

Perhaps THREE CAME HOME is one of those multi-track stereo films recorded on optical film which still needs work---or perhaps that work has already been done, and it might be available.

I'm going to throw my hat into the Kritzerland Ring and request the beautiful score by Victor Young, 'For Whom the Bell Tolls'. I rented this from Netflix a few months ago and never noticed that there was an Entr'Acte at the midway point. I think the studio did a great job at this dvd release as the picture was gorgeous. Young's music was exciting as well as softly romantic with guitars and strings. The photo here says Universal in the lower corner, and I could be wrong but I seem to recall The Paramount logo at the begining of the film. In which case....

I agree. It seems like nearly all of the cds from the 40s, 50s & 60s are from Kritzerland. We are lucky to have Bruce.

Bruce, will A Place in the Sun be shipped shortly?

I wonder if there are music elements still existing for Victor Young's score to THE CONQUERER. If there is it could still be a problem however because although made for Howard Hughes and released by RKO it is now under the control of Universal. Similar situation with Waxman's REAR WINDOW. Film made by Hitchcock at Paramount but now under the control of Universal.
