......Hollywood and the Stars would make a great release. I believe there Kritzerland would have to deal with the David Wolper estate.....


It's hard to know---without REALLY having the detailed information---who you'd have to deal with.

I believe the Wolper estate materials may now lie with Warner Bros. Whether they ALL do is another question.

The actual series was distributed by United Artists Television back in the 1960s, and so MGM Entertainment (by way of their ownership of UA) may also add some rights issues into the equation.

I remember many years ago that people were requesting the series be put onto some sort of video format and, at that time, the rights to the image materials were very, very complicated and, therefore, expensive, and so nothing was ever achieved. This may be one of those times where something is tied up forever and thus lost to public viewing or listening.

Since we're blue-skying it here, I may as well throw in for whatever else the Wolper/Bernstein tv documentary catalog may hold, including THE MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 1960. As a former "Bernstein completist" (I don't recommend that pursuit to anyone!) I once shelled out for a mint copy of the 2-LP release from that documentary, only to discover that there was not a note of EB's music on it. Well, I'm still mad about that, and I still would love to have it. (And of course HOLLYWOOD AND THE STARS, one of those shows I watched addictively as a child just to hear Bernstein's great theme.)

I'd buy those on CD within 'two shakes of an Asses tail'! So much great Elmer music still unreleased, lots and lots! I'm praying and hoping that Bruce will be able to access some more. Thanks Bruce for giving us so much already, much appreciated!

With all the wonderful recent Kritzerland releases available to your loyal subjects,
for which they bow down in awe and admiration, I'd say your next title should be "His Majesty, King Bruce, Ruler of the CD Realm and Master of the Soundtrack Domain!"

Three cheers!

Long may he reign!

I've just been listening to Strategic Air Command again, in my opinion it's one of the most enjoyable CD releases...ever! I played David and Bathsheba last night and the sound is as good as everyone has been saying, can't wait to get The Rat Race, thanks Bruce!

Nope. Elmer is on hiatus for a few weeks.

Perhaps that would be the place to start.

You mean like, THE ROOTS OF HEAVEN? I'm buying!

Any old Friedhofer (like, well, THE SUN ALSO RISES) wouldn't be half-bad either, as long as we're dabbling in the fifties Fox/Juliette Greco thing...

Oh, all right - composer and one title has been guessed smile

It's Mr. Friedhofer - as most know, one of my favorite film composers ever. Three scores on two CDs. One of them, as has been mentioned, is a near-complete (missing only seven minutes of music) The Rains of Ranchipur - in mono (the stereo mags, for the most part, are not usable for most of the score), but really good mono, plus we do have the few surviving cues in stereo that were on the Varese CD and one additional short part of the end title in stereo.

Of the two other titles, one has been out before, but has been completely re-mixed for this release and sounds absolutely incredible, and it has two short unreleased cues added, and the third score has never been released in any form. Let's just say, I'm dancing a jig.

Sounds great. My no mono rule is flexible & I shall certantly be buying this. I wonder what the other two titles are? Years ago it was FSM releasing 50's Fox, then Varese & Intrada, & I'm thinking Kritzerland is our last chance.

Could the one that has been remixed be THE Young Lions?
