INTRADA Announces:



THE FORGOTTEN
Music Composed and Conducted by LAURENCE ROSENTHAL
INTRADA Signature Edition 1049

Laurence Rosenthal's score to the 1989 telefilm The Forgotten serves as a powerful example of one of Rosenthal’s greatest strengths as a film composer: his ability to write music that not only fits the action, but speaks with great clarity to the underlying truth of the characters. The characters are tortured individuals in wrenching circumstances, and Rosenthal’s music does not shy away from this. But he places their suffering into a broader context—one that honors their sacrifice without resorting to sentimentality or nationalism. While the entire score—with its elegant main theme and variety of dramatic cues— bears noting, the score also features some Rosenthal's most exciting and energetic action sequences, including staccato figures for woodwinds and propulsive percussion including xylophone.

The complete score is presented here from the pristine stereo 15-ips 1/4" masters.

The film is based on an original teleplay by Steve Railsback (who also co-starred) and James Keach (who directed), and tells the story of six Green Berets who for seventeen years endured harsh conditions and torture in a Vietnamese POW camp, where they were taken after a mission gone disastrously wrong. In advance of delicate trade negotiations, they are released as a goodwill gesture. Instead of being taken home to America, however, they are secreted away to a West German facility under heavy guard. There they are aggressively interrogated by the sinister Adam Roth (Stacy Keach).

I know nothing of this, um, forgotten TV movie. But the samples sound fantastic! Kudos to Intrada for risking their money on something so obscure. They will have my $20.

It's a great score, and the main theme alone is fantastic. The sort of theme that you hear once and don't forget.

Bet you can't whistle it right now, without playing it again first :-)

Had you been around back when I first heard it, I'd gladly have obliged! smile I'm not talking about the Asian melody that opens the first clip, by the way. The main theme is first heard in full at 1:30.

All Rosenthal releases are a must-buy.
I particularly regret missing Intrada's "Mussolini: The Untold Story".

Did you write the notes for this one? Intrada's website/press release doesn't say.

I don't think Rosenthal has ever written bad music, honestly.

I'm glad to see that the Signature Edition is still alive! I was getting worried when Glory and Honor went out of print because at that point there wasn't a single Signature title still in print (and the last one to be released was the disappointing Richard Band Dragonworld).

And that sure looks like Stacy, not James, Keach in the artwork....

I agree Rosenthal was another film composer who nearly always did a good score.

I know he hasn't composed a new score in at least five years, but still, please say "is."
