Here is another unreleased Delerue score that needs to be heard by all

The string-heavy Main Title sounds pleasantly sudsy enough to look for the film.

Amazon has it only as an expensive ($40-80) Region 2 PAL DVD UK import.

Tempting.

Never saw this one, but here's a very interesting blog discussion about Merle Oberon:

Fantastic. THIS is the Delerue that I love most. That unmistakable, lyrical sound that was introduced to a certain 13 year old watching "Joe Vs. The Volcano "...

I can only imagine that what Georges Delerue wrote for this four hour drama has to be EPIC.


Queenie, isn't that the name of Gale Gordan's dog in the film the Burbs'?

This is awesome! Right now, I am watching the whole movie and the music is just perfect! Brilliant how Georges included Indian music in his symphonic themes!!

1. Yes, indeed this was a beautiful score. Two other made-for-TV films he did around that same time were A TIME TO LIVE starring Liza Minnelli, and AMOS with Kirk Douglas, both of which also had music in this same lyrical vein. AMOS had an especially poignant theme.

2. Not to continue living in the 20th century, but QUEENIE was also available as a VHS two-tape set. Used copies turn up on ebay and amazon occasionally. That's where I got mine. But beware, there's also a cut down version floating around.

The theme to AMOS is extremely beautiful, I just can't get out of my head. Fortunately, there is a "Bootleg" of the score floating around so at least the music can be heard in some form.

Two other scores by Delerue from this period also should be mentioned: the telefilm STONE PILLOW which I think featured Lucille Ball's last performance and AURORA with Sophia Loren. Again, two extraordinary scores that need to be better known...

The complete list of Delerue's American television scores in the 80s:

Memento Mori (1992) (TV)
Without Warning: The James Brady Story (1991) (TV)
The Josephine Baker Story (1991) (TV)
Queenie (1987) (TV)
Her Secret Life (1987) (TV)
Escape from Sobibor (1987) (TV)
Sword of Gideon (1986) (TV)
Women of Valor (1986) (TV)
Sin of Innocence (1986) (TV)
Stone Pillow (1985) (TV)
A Time to Live (1985) (TV)
Amos (1985) (TV)
Deadly Intentions (1985) (TV)
The Execution (1985) (TV)
Arch of Triumph (1984) (TV)
Silence of the Heart (1984) (TV)
Love Thy Neighbor (1984) (TV)

All without a release of any kind...confused and frown

The best part of SOBIBOR is the actual escape music....unfortunately it's almost completely drowned out by machine guns and screaming...

Sword of Gideon (1986) (TV)

Contains one of my all time favourite Delerue themes. One of his grandest themes, and so incredibly catchy and beautiful at the same time.

Which one shall it be "Munich" or "Sword Of Gideon"?


To think that there is more than 1 hour of score in that film, one of Delerue's longest film scores.

I'd certainly love to get my hands on the music. Not that I ever watched the mini-series, but with such an extraordinary main theme I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of the score has alot to offer.

What a wonderful score by Georges Delerue featuring some his most lush, romantic, and exotic music. The music is also treated very well in the audio mix of the film, unlike Delerue's work in other television movies.

I watched the entire four hour film and uploaded a few scenes that should be of interest. There are few more scenes on my youtube channel.

I think someone mention Colette Delerue has the tapes for this....but no one was interested in releasing it ! Perhaps someone could verify this?

I don't think it's a question of who has the tapes but rather of how to obtain the license...

The studio is ABC which is owned by Disney.
