This was just posted on Music Box Records' Facebook Page:


This thursday we will announce our two new CD releases:

- A release presenting the two scores for the same film (the original score and the rejected score).

- A release of a famous Italian composer for a French film.



Clues suck but i hope all this will eventually turn into a very nice surprise, especially regarding the rejected score.

I wish there was more information for the rejected score so at lest I could guess.

"- A release of a famous Italian composer for a French film. "

should it be Morricone,
following their release of the Morricone/Belmondo "Professionel" & "Marginal", could it be "Peur Sur La Ville" or "Le Casse"?

other Morricone entries that have not been recently (re)issued in expanded form include
Le Clan Des Siciliens
Sans Mobile Apparent
Le Secret
Espion Lève Toi
or maybe Samuel Fuller's "Les VOleurs De La Nuit" (french production?)


but it could be Bacalov, Cipriani, etc....

Young Guns I would be nice.
But To Kill a Priest would be incredible too.

I mean Conti's THE BIG BLUE for the score by an Italian composer to a French movie. His BIG BLUE score wasn't really rejected, it was used for the U.S. version of the film.

I sure wish the first one was Apocalypse Now. On the other hand, David Shire's
score wasn't really rejected but simply dumped for other reasons.

Plus you'd need a three-disc set at least (Eric Serra's music got a two-disc release as well).

Early in Conti's career he scored some films in Italy. Also, I think one disc would do it just for Conti's music.

Conti said he ghost wrote some scores there, which was the beginning of his career. We still don't know those titles.

Well if you don`t count the native indians then there is actually no "real" americans, by the way who cares.

Anyway whatever it is whenever they mention a rejected score it gets my attention.

Music Box has added two more clues on their Facebook website about this CD:
1) The composer is not Morricone
2) One of the actors is also of Italian origin

So it's certainly not one of the French Bacalov scores from the early 80s, but I suppose it will be Piccioni's LE TÉMOIN from 1978 which was directed by Jean-Pierre Mocky. The score is owned by General Music where it was also available as digital download a few years ago.
And the Italian Alberto Sordi is one of the two leading actors - the other one is Philippe Noiret.

It's hardly Bacalov considering he's Argentinian composer.

According to Facebook : "The case of the rejected score is a quite unusual case in french cinema history and both scores are from two very famous composers."

According to Facebook : "The case of the rejected score is a quite unusual case in french cinema history and both scores are from two very famous composers."

That narrows it down sugnificantly. Here's my quick list -- anybody, feel free to correct me if I get French films wrong (assuming the title is not on my rejected scores site):

1960
THE DAY THEY ROBBED THE BANK OF ENGLAND -- ?????. [Edwin Astley.]
LE PILLOLE DI ERCOLE -- Ennio Morricone. [Armando Trovajoli]
SURPRISE PACKAGE -- Benjamin Frankel. [Kenneth V. Jones, Benjamin Frankel (leftovers).]

1966
MATCHLESS -- Piero Piccioni. [Ennio Morricone, Gino Marinuzzi, Jr.]

1970
THE RED CIRCLE / Le Cercle Rouge -- Michel Legrand. [Eric Demarsan.]

1973
DEUX HOMMES DANS LA VILLE -- Franis de Roubaix, R.I.P.. [Philippe Sarde.]
