Hey, I'm pouring my heart out with my love of Mannix here!

For me, Mannix's best seasons are from 2 to 6!

Art,

I already know that reference of unsold pilot. Only the telefilm title may remind the concept of season 1.

The announcement of--wait for it--S4 of DIAGNOSIS: MURDER--has me excited because of the Mannix crossover episode, "Hard Boiled Murder", from the 1996-97 season. It's essentially a Mannix episode--I think Mike Connors has more screen time than DM series star Dick Van Dyke-- because it's a sequel to the S7 Mannix episode, "Little Girl Lost." The Diagnosis Murder episode uses footage from the 1973 Mannix show and features cast members from that episode reprising their roles, including Pernell Roberts. smile I'm probably alone in my enthusiasm for this. lol

"Mannix is a loose end."
—The Hired Killer (Jason Evers) from "The Silent Cry".
Notice the Thrush infrared sight!


I always thought that Jason Evers was underrated.

Not at all! A TV movie would have been preferable, of course, but it was great to see Mannix back in action again, and the episode gave his character a great send-off. If I must, I'll buy the season just to have that episode.

I believe the season is split into two sets and "Hard Boiled Murder" would be in the second one.

Not to go too off course here wink but I used to get a kick out of this stuff on CBS. It was a hoot to see Barnaby Jones and Frank Cannon "join forces". Cannon should have left the driving to Barnaby! big grin


The excellent Goldsmith score is like a cross between "The Last Run" and "Police Story" with numerous brilliant arrangements of the Barnaby Jones theme. There's a great, extended cue that kicks in at around 2:40 in the series premiere, "Requiem for a Son."



I haven't seen "Cannon" in decades. I'd forgotten how much ol' Frank liked to cook. wink

I saw the handkerchief remark you mentioned. big grin

A while back You Tuber COSMORICO edited together a nice 13 minute suite of JG's music from "Requiem For a Son".

It's an impressive score, isn't it? JG was cranking quality TV music in the early '70s. His template for "Police Story" is sooo good and it remains one of my favorite releases.

That suite that COSMORICO put together is a welcome relief from the clumsy big orchestral concert arrangements of the Barnaby Jones theme that we've had to settle for over the years. When he first put it up I played it over and over. Police Story remains one of my favorite Goldsmith cd's (Great cover art on that) There's variations of the themes and attention to detail that we're not likely to hear again. It's been said a million times, but the 70's was a special window in time for these TV scores. All the while keeping in mind that Goldsmith had already made it big as a film composer, and coming back to his old training ground in TV made it all the more special.

Getting back to MANNIX, which do you prefer as a listening experience, the recent Lalo re-record or the old Paramount soundtrack re-record?

You may be stunned to learn this, but I have yet to buy the "Police Story" dvds. wink I'd like to hear/see Jerry's music in action as well as the Richard Shores arrangements of same. There's an episode on YouTube with a pasty-looking Sue Ane Langdon as a cop trying to break through the male chauvinist barrier so that kept me from purchasing said dvds--at least for the moment. big grin

The 1960s re-record wins hands down. Unlike 99% of those who haunt these boards, I actually enjoy of-the-era re-recordings of stuff like Man from U.N.C.L.E., I SPY, Mission: Impossible, and of course, MANNIX.

The 1968 album is much better than the terrible 2000 edition that goes in the wrong direction.
Schifrin used to assert that the original material was MIA.
But nothing is so sure. It is a job for a producer to track down the master tapes.
In the meantime, we're lucky to get the restored prints on DVD.

I know it gets a bad rap from some, but I really enjoy that "Best of Mission Impossible" cd that GNP put out ages ago. It's got a lot going for it. It's got some of the original Schifrin MI tracks, and despite it's brevity is important to have in any 70's TV series cd collection. It may be all we ever get of the original scores. I could do without the John E. Davis material that's on there, but if that's what it took to get some of the original music released then so be it.


The sound quality is average because of an excess of noise and a lack of dynamics.
With today's expertise and technology, the sound could be improved drastically.
Since it's a GNP Crescendo release, I'm sure LLL could do the job with finesse: see last year's Star Trek multi-sets.

I've had that GNP M:I release for ten years now and I don't think I've listened to it more than three times. The Peter Graves interview and Davis music are worthless to me and the Lalo music is maddeningly brief. Thankfully we have the DVDs, as it's unlikely the scores of Fielding and Golson will ever see a legitimate release.
