It has been constantly available in all the formats of home video for years: vhs, dvd, widescreen dvd, collector's editions, blu-ray, etc., which I think indicates a pretty good afterlife!

Including the laserdisc:

I just jumped on this one now, despite never actually seeing the film. (Actually I think my grandparents have the DVD, I'll borrow it when I visit them this afternoon)

The samples sound brilliant, and given how fast it's going, I thought I'd better get in while the getting was good!

The laser version is the only, one to my knowledge, which includes intermission music

When I saw A Bridge Too Far first run it played with an Overture.

Having missed the RYKO cd, I also was one of those who rejoiced at the announcement of this release. This is probably my favourite Addison score. Thank you from me too, Bruce.smile

Always glad to see the Addison love, especially for this score. Less than 100 now.

Under 70 now - speak now or forever hold your something-or-other.

He was at his very best as real life serial killer John Christie in 10 Rilligton Place, a superby creepy and understated performance in an exceptionally well made film.

Worst performance is easily John Hammond in Jurassic Park....terrible!


You aren't kidding. Didn't that stink? The grandfather who ran the park in the novel was far more sinister and grasping. As I recall, he got his by the end. Spielberg absolutely ruined Crichton's book JURRASIC PARK by catering to the kiddy crowd.

Nice to see this fine release of ABTF, though.

Nice release Bruce! I've never understood why some have panned this score for being too "upbeat" for a war film...I recall reading on a previous FSM thread that someone thought it a "terrible" score. I remember listening to the LP over and over again as a kid - the melodies were/are incredible and this was one of those scores that inspired me to study music at University. This one will always be a personal favorite...

I think Addison knew exactly what he was doing with this score, and it works perfectly with the story that's being told. There are ways to score films and there are ways to score films - not everything has to be done with Film Scoring 101.

Most likely ahem. He seems to despise anything by Addison.

I think the "upbeatness" was really smart. The Allies were overconfident that Operation Market Garden would go as planned. They didn't count on the various delays (narrow roads) and roadblocks (encountering an SS unit on break in Arnhem that they didn't know was there) that led to the operation's collapse. The exuberance in the score dissipates as the movie progresses and the plan unravels.

So I think the jauntiness is spot-on. As is the melancholy of the theme for the Dutch civilians.

Since I am trying to get off the Intrada release week (when they had their sale they missed their usual week and suddenly we were releasing on the same day and that's just too crazy), if we can pull it together we're going to announce our next release next week. As to clews - a double bill on one CD. Different composers who share a common trait and two scores that I have always been over the moon about and moon is not a clew, nor is over.
