Is there really a character called Van Cleave in RATON PASS, or is it some kind of in-joke?


Steve Cochran's role.

Sort of like P.S. Van Loan, a character played by Pierre Watkins in Universal's LITTLE GIANT. There was a member of the music staff at the time named P.S. Van Loon!

Track 34 of Disc One, "Max complains about the delicatessen" sounds dramatic.

Maybe the food was giving the orchestra stomach gas. They say Max shot a man just for farting.


The possible inspiration for Jerry's farting brass?

I'm sure Yavar would be able to confirm or deny that hypothesis.

And for folks who didnt get my pop culture reference:

"John Wesley Hardin-- so mean he once shot a man just for snoring."

Coincidently, Van Cleave provided music for the 'What You Need' segment of THE TWILIGHT ZONE (which starred Steve Cochran).

The Newman box was a whopping FIVE CDs, not three smile Must be mixing it up with the last Steiner box.

Exactly correct Yavar. I have a friend in the US who ships them to me, caseless, 3 at a time. Also throwing me, it seems of late that we've been properly showered with 'Golden' goodies - some of them 'three-bees'. Could this be a trend, says he nervously!

How are you cuddling up to Newman's 'Splendored Thing'? I think of Bruce's latest offering as a splendored thing in itself and am currently delighting in a 'Prince of Foxes' earworm, can't go anywhere without it.

BONUS TRACK – CHARGE AT FEATHER RIVER

29. Johnny Wounded / Wilhelm Screams aborted 2:15


Seeing as Charge at Feather River was WB's first use of the famous scream, how great would it be if this track easter egged all the takes at the end? Maybe... it does. razz

It's a stock FX scream that's been used hundreds of times. There's a sound byte on the Wikipedia page I linked.

For those of you not familiar with the films whose scores appear on our new 3-CD set, here is a youtube that showcases the trailers to 7 of the 8 films:

I need to transfer my (albeit B&W) trailer to THE LION AND THE HORSE and update the video. I'll do this when I get back from the west coast.

Ray, is there any reason why Steiner´s score for the Errol Flynn western SILVER RIVER is not on the set? I can only assume that it probably would have been too expensive to produce a 4 CD set with the inclusion of that score of which acetates were/are available in the Steiner library. So was that the reason to omit it or anything else?
Otherwise SILVER RIVER would have gone together very well with the other Steiner scores for Errol Flynn westerns from the 40s which are indeed now on the set.
Anyway, thanks for this great CD set!

The wiki says it originated in "Distant Drums," and later named after a character in "Feather River." I thought it originated earlier than 1951. Some of the sailors falling into the spider pit in KONG '33 sound Wilhemish (different studio, but still).
