Silverman contributes a very nice main theme to this 1981 Peter Yates thriller starring William Hurt and Sigourney Weaver. He even gets a credit on the poster. He hasn't done much film work, however. IMDb tells us he did earn a Tony Award though. What's the story with Silverman? Does he mostly work in the theater? Anyone remember the music for Eyewitness?

I finally caught up with EYEWITNESS a few months ago. I don't recall much about the score however. There is no main title theme. The score was conducted by Charles Gerhardt.

The music doesn't appear under the opening titles, as I recall. In lieu of music, we hear the sounds of the incinerator that William Hurt's character empties the trash into. The aforementioned theme first plays when Hurt rides his motorcycle home from work at night, after the credits. Definitely more of a love theme. I'm pretty sure it plays at other points in the film, but haven't watched in awhile. There is a reprise during the end credits.

I much prefer Stanley Silverman's strong score to I'm Dancing As Fast As I Can (1982) with Jill Clayburgh. Alas, a soundtrack album was never issued but I'd buy it in a second!

Haven't seen this one. Will have to correct that one of these days.

With Bruce and Kritzerland's new release of BREAKING AWAY, I got to thinking again of Yates' follow-up, also at Fox, EYEWITNESS. Could this be doubled with Stanley Silverman's I'M DANCING AS FAST AS I CAN, as Bruce has relationships with both Fox and Paramount, or are they incompatible on one disc?

Do labels ever combine scores from different rights holders (specifically studios) on the same disc? I feel like there might be examples of this, but I suspect they're few and far between.

I'm sure there are some, but the only that springs to mind is the Elf-box. Or: the super karate monkey death Elfman kitchen sink set.

I cannot imagine the negotiations that must have gone to get those Disney, Fox, Sony and Warners scores together on one set. I can only assume it was the combined clout of Burton and Elfman that made that possible.

FSM did it early on with the Gerald Fried four-fer -- one of the four was a different studio than the other three.

I'm pretty sure doing it isn't much more complicated than doing dual licenses when an album has one owner and additional film tracks for an expansion have another...but why on earth would one go to that extra complication if it wasn't absolutely necessary (as it often is for expansions)?
