'Menace and Rescue' by Alfred Schnittke from Rikki Tikki Tavi. Incredibly thrilling chase music, and awesome recording by Frank Strobel. It starts to ramp up around 1:00. Some of Alfred Schnittke's film scores are somewhat underrated.
I saw the 1975 Breakout for the first time this week. A bit of a programmer with a good cast, not quite an action classic - but when Goldsmith's music explodes early on in this cue, it briefly reaches a level of bliss:
This sounds like Chariots of Fire might've been the temp track, but Hartley made it all his own. A surprisingly melancholy end to an underrated action/comedy/drama. Was this movie underrated because people didn't get the tongue-in-cheek tone?
