Scores from 1960s Columbia films are scarce. But here's the rub--the copyright to the film is owned not by distributor Columbia, but by the film's production company, producer Martin Ransohoff's Filmways. Most of the Filmways assets are with the new MGM (old United Artists), so maybe that's the place to be looking. Of course, Columbia did release the DVD of the film, so . . .
This score has been mentioned before on here. From memory there was only about 4 moments of music in the film, no? I recall a swingle singers type track and one dramatic track with - I think - organ. And not much else? I might be completely wrong, as I saw this when i was about 16.
watching this again tonight. Much slower and well..trippier than i recall. To correct myself there is quite a bit of short bursts of music but most of it is organ, harpsichord, and swingle singers style, like that bacharach track frm Butch cassidy but not as good. There is a very good clip in the opening titles but it doesnt last long. Repeated as the end title theme.
Also a couple of Burts crew i recognised. early role for Bruce Dern. There is also a very young Tony Bill, of Washington Behind closed doors fame.
one guy waz bugging me. they call him clearboy. couldnt place him. Then i realised its a very early role for the guy in The Walking Dead, Herschel- the one with his leg cut off on crutches.(scott wilson)
