Film Score Friday 12/14/18
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 12/13/2018 - 9:00 PM
Quartet has announced several new soundtrack CDs -- a brand-new recording of Bernard Herrmann's score for the thriller THE BRIDE WORE BLACK, which Francois Truffaut directed from the Cornel Woolrich novel, featuring Fernando Velazquez conducting the Basque National Orchestra; an expanded, two-disc edition of Nino Rota's classic score for Federico Fellini's 8 1/2; a 60th anniversary two-disc edition of Jerome Moross' classic, Oscar-nominated score for the Western epic THE BIG COUNTRY, feauring the full score tracks as well as (in mono and processed "stereo") the original LP tracks; a two-disc, 35th anniversary edition of Arthur B. Rubinstein's score for the hit WARGAMES, featuring both a remastered version of the original score tracks and the tracks from the original soundtrack LP (which featured both score and dialogue excerpts); the first release of the full Bernardo Bonezzi score for Pedro Almodovar's comedy classic WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN; a remastered anniversary edition of Ennio Morricone's beloved score for CINEMA PARADISO; and EL HOMBRE Y LA TIERRA, a four-disc set of Anton Garcia Abril's music for the documentary TV series that ran from 1974 to 1981.


Kritzerland has announced two new CDs -- the music from the 1949 Western THE CISCO KID IN THE GAY AMIGO, scored by B-movie veteran Albert Glasser (The Amazing Colossal Man), plus cues from additional Glasser scores; and a remastered and resequenced release of Alfred Newman's score for the religious drama A MAN CALLED PETER

This week alone perfectly showcases that mix with movie buffs able to wrangle with Dracula, swing along with Tarzan and Errol Flynn, belt out Broadway tunes and fly along with one of Robert Altman’s stranger ‘70s odysseys, all on Blu-Ray for the first time.

Film Score Friday 12/7/18

The latest new CD from Intrada is another unexpected "Holy Grail" score -- Jerry Goldsmith's haunting music from the 1975 supernatural thriller THE REINCARNATION OF PETER PROUD. J. Lee Thompson (The Guns of Navarone, Cape Fear, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes) directed the film, which starred Michael Sarrazin as a man who starts to believe his nightmares and flashes of deja vu are actually memories of a past life, with Margot Kidder, Jennifer O'Neill and Cornelia Sharpe as the women of his past and present. Goldsmith's score, a typically striking and inventive mixture of orchestra and electronics, was rumored to be a favorite of the composer's, but has never had a commercial release until now. (The score has been preserved in its entirety, but due to the 1/4 inch tape format on which the music was saved, the tracks have what Intrada warns are "audio anomalies.")

Their other new CD is a remastered re-release of Christopher Young's score for the little-seen 1989 psychological thriller HIDER IN THE HOUSE, starring Mimi Rogers, Michael McKean, and Gary Busey as the "hider," from a screenplay by Lem Dobbs (Dark City, The Limey, The Score).

The label also plans an upcoming release of a new score, which Doug Fake describes as "from one of the major studios, the star a big one, the composer very famous and the director boasting a formidable list of successes as well," so in all likelihood it will be Alan Silvestri's score for Robert Zemeckis' Welcome to Marwen, starring Steve Carell.


Last Friday, Varese Sarabande announced a limited edition three-CD bundle DAVE GRUSIN: THE PREMIERE COLLECTION, featuring four never-before-released scores by the Oscar-winning composer: the 1979 dark legal comedy-drama ...AND JUSTICE FOR ALL, directed by Norman Jewison, which earned Oscar nominations for Al Pacino's lead performance and the original screenplay by Barry Levinson and Valerie Curtin; director Sydney Pollack's 1981 legal drama ABSENCE OF MALICE, nominated for actors Paul Newman and Melinda Dillon and its Kurt Leudtke screenplay; the Neil Simon-scriped 1976 comedy spoof MURDER BY DEATH, featuring an all-star cast as parodies of classic detectives -- Peter Falk (as Sam Spade), David Niven (Nick Charles), Maggie Smith (Nora Charles), Peter Sellers (Charlie Chan), James Coco (Hercules Poirot) and Elsa Lanchester (Miss Marple), plus Alec Guinness, Eileen Brennan, Nancy Walker, James Cromwell, Estelle Winwood, and even Truman Capote; and director Robert Mulligan's 1971 romantic drama THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, starring Michael Sarrazin and Barbara Hershey.

Aisle Seat 12-4: December Arrival Edition
Posted By: Andy Dursin 12/3/2018 - 9:00 PM
Arguably the most legendary “lost movie” of all-time, Criterion’s new and eagerly anticipated Blu-Ray of Orson Welles’ THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS (88 mins., 1942) still presents the compromised RKO released version of the writer-director’s oft-hailed “Citizen Kane” follow-up. Yet, it does so in such a vividly restored 4K transfer – and with a rich assortment of special features – that buffs may feel it easier than ever to gain a sense of Welles’ original vision, even if it’s still heartbreakingly out of reach.
