I have always enjoyed listening to the music from this Glenn Ford western.I would love to see a CD of this score released. It was produced at Columbia Pictures and therefore probably nothing was saved.

Bumping this back because I'm watching the new Criterion edition of JUBAL and really enjoying Raksin's music. Anyone know the exact status of the original soundtrack recording?

Glenn Ford was also in "3.10 to Yuma", directed by Delmer Daves. This is actually a very good western with an excellent title song, music by George Duning:

Did you notice the aircraft vapor trail in the sky as the camera tilt upwards during the credits?

A David Raksin Western, who knew? I too have just enjoyed the new Criterion Blu-ray, and the score is terrific in that special Raksin way. There is a lot of it, too. We need this one on CD if in any way possible.

Tomorrow evening, July 22nd, the American Film Institute's Silver Theatre will be showing a restored 35mm print of JUBAL. It was likely made in conjunction with the recent Criterion Blu-ray production. I plan on being there to see it.

I started watching this movie a while ago and stopped because I felt like I'd heard this sort of story too many times.

I regret it now because it was probably the prettiest Raksin music I'd heard, short of LAURA and AMBER.

The new print at the AFI last night looked fine, with a glorious directional stereo soundtrack that greatly enhanced Raksin's score (no surrounds though). This seems to be the same way that the sound is presented on the Criterion release.

I find this is a most original western, plenty of wonderful and exciting/unexpected(and some daring !) ideas and well-crafted characters (Rod Steiger, Felicia Farr, Charles Bronson...) and wonderfully photographed in Jackson Hole.

Yes, what a real treat for Raksin's score on the Criterion edition ! And I hardly can believe there are no original elements that could turned into an awesome CD release !
Incidentally, Bertrand Tavernier has told me that part of the music had been used again in Sherman's REPRISAL.

Same with me. It was on TV a week or so again but I gave up on it after about 30 minutes. I'm afraid Raksin's score didn't register with me at all.

I like the film and the music very much. I'd be the first in line to buy the score.

Here's the movie so you can hear the Main Title and watch the movie if you're so inclined:

Nice enough main title, cut from the Virgil Thompson brand of Americana heard often from Westerns of this era. Films seems well-photographed (Charles Laughton Jr. & Cinemascope, after all), but I must agree with others that 15 minutes in, getting a strong sense of Deja Vu here and the underscore isn't really grabbing me either.

Still, would be nice for this to see the light of day for Raksin fans!

Maybe I'll try listening to the film without watching it, while doing dishes or something.

I like this film and score. Grew up with both.

I made it 40 minutes. A good bit more to go....

Your parents showed you a "sex western"?? Progressive folks you had, Yavar!

I finally watched this, and tracked the cues to "tape off TV." It's really great Raksin!

Yes, a very enjoyable listening experience. Perhaps, if anything exists in the Columbia vault, Intrada will make it happen.

"A David Raksin Western, who knew?"

Answer: A fellow named Will Penny.

Before Will Penny, he wrote Invitation to a Gunfighter (1964):

And before Jubal or Will Penny, he wrote Across the Wide Missouri (1951):
https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/cds/detail.cfm/CDID/411/David-Raksin-at-M-G-M/

Expanding our view to the unreleased stuff, according to IMDb, he was one of four composers who contributed (uncredited) to Frontier Marshal in 1939, and his earliest credited western score seems to be Fury at Furnace Creek, in 1948:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0040380/?ref_=nm_flmg_com_64

So it's not like Raksin didn't have a decent affinity with the genre. smile

Really hope Will Penny gets a definitive release some day...his last and greatest western score, IMO.

Your parents showed you a "sex western"?? Progressive folks you had, Yavar!

Before he passed away, my father recorded dozens and dozens of classic westerns to VHS for himself. I simply watched through them all as I grew up; I guess my mom didn't police me too much if it was something he recorded, though in general I was kept away from R (and most PG-13) rated films for some time. I remember it was a big deal when I got to watch Dances With Wolves around age 12 or 13.

Yavar, you're maybe forgetting another Raksin western credit : A BIG HAND FOR THE LITTLE LADY, from 1966...
