Well, golly Mr. Dillon.

Dennis Weaver, Chester from "Gunsmoke" (or the car driver from Dule), gets his own TV series. It ran from 1970 to 1977.

I watched an episode yesterday and really enjoyed it a lot, so I figured I'd give the series a try, especially considering in the past I have gone briefly through some episodes and took note of the scoring.

I don't know what I'll find, but I know it's going to be worth it. Weaver is very enjoyable and the series had so many talented composers over it's run.

Only about a dozen episodes are currently up, so I'll only be doing this initially for probably two or three days. After that, any future contributions to the thread will be based on finding more loads, so it could be a month or it could be a year.



SEASON 1

"Portrait of a Dead Girl" (1.0)
By: David Shire
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5mcos5 (audio is out of sync with the picture)
https://archive.org/details/mc-cloud-s-01-e-00-portrait-of-a-dead-girl-pilot/
https://ok.ru/video/6761122368003

Note: Also known as "Who Killed Miss U.S.A.?".

Highlights:
  • 5:17 in.
  • 9:33 in. A country-music feel with some staccato brass.
  • 11:57 in.
  • 26:41 in. Opens with a slow and steady solo acoustic guitar, but picks up some and is joined by strings.
  • 39:53 in.
  • 45:59 in.
  • 47:05 in. About the first minute is mixed really low. And it also goes into the end credits, which cuts off early.



    "Who Says You Can't Make Friends in New York City?" (1.1)
    By: David Shire
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5mj70l (audio is out of sync with the picture) (bad combo load)
    https://ok.ru/video/6761137637891

    Highlights:
  • 5:43 in. A little bit of country with some accordion for a touch of a French sound since this episode takes place in France.
  • 8:29 in.
  • 15:38 in.
  • 20:30 in.
  • 2348 in.
  • 27:45 in. That is one tall elevator ceiling!
  • 33:23 in.
  • 35:22 in.
  • 40:16 in. A shaker, wooden block and a bass flute.
  • 44:30 in.

    The episode cuts off early; I have no idea if there was a special end credits piece.

    The episode is a combo; they took two different episodes, edited them down, combined them, and recorded some dialogue (and some brief new scenes) to try and tie them together; I guess they thought the audience was stupid and wouldn't realize these don't go together. I'll refer to them as "bad combo load" from this point on.




    "Horse Stealing on Fifth Avenue" (1.2)
    By: David Shire
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5mj80c (audio is out of sync with the picture) (bad combo load)

    Highlights:
  • 2:39 in. I think it's notable how this cue changes style three times in about 20 or so seconds and yet it works.
  • 6:27 in.
  • 30:53 in. It'll be sweet to have this cue unedited one day; there's a bad edit in the episode, so it looks like a bit was cut. I think I also heard a brief cut elsewhere.

    The load is not complete; it's missing about ten minutes.



    "The Concrete Corral" (1.3)
    By: David Shire
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5lrm3p (audio is out of sync with the picture) (bad combo load)

    Highlights:
  • 1:50 in.
  • 8:17 in.
  • 11:52 in.
  • 13:09 in. Mostly SFX free.
  • 16:24 in.
  • 24:20 in.
  • 27:12 in.
  • 30:47 in.
  • 35:54 in.

    The load is not complete; it's missing about ten minutes.



    "The Stage Is All the World" (1.4)
    By: David Shire
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5lrm3p (normal un-combined episode)
    https://ok.ru/video/6814396385795

  • 16:43 in.
  • 20:37 in.
  • 23:24 in.
  • 32:10 in.
  • 37:52 in.



    "Walk in the Dark"
    By: David Shire

    https://ok.ru/video/4033920895629

  • 19:12 in.
  • 28:56 in.
  • 34:26 in.
  • 36:09 in.
  • 43:44 in.



    "Our Man in Paris" (6) (final episode of season one)
    By: David Shire
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5lvj9s (normal un-combined episode)
    https://ok.ru/video/6761346435587

    Since part of this episode was edited into one in an above review, any comments I made will be copied and pasted.

    Highlights:
  • 0:00 in.
  • 1:36 in.
  • 3:06 in.
  • 8:37 in.
  • 23:08 in. (also has accordion)
  • 24:45 in. (also has accordion)
  • 30:05 in. A little bit of country with some accordion for a touch of a French sound since this episode takes place in France.
  • 32:35 in.
  • 39:29 in.
  • 43:53 in.
  • 46:20 in.

    The scoring began out more country like, but progressed more into jazz as the episodes passed.

    I wonder if you'll get to a certain episode featuring a cool piece of music... problem is I haven't seen it for 40 years and I know NOTHING about it except that it features a scene where one of McCloud's cop buddies loses his nerve in a showdown and is shot/wounded by the bad guy who escapes with McCloud in pursuit. Shots exchanged PERHAPS in a rooftop chase at night. Bad guy gets away. The chase music is great - strange and demented. Might be Shire. Love to hear it again.

    The trouble is I'm not completely certain it was actually a McCloud episode at all! I was just a little kid, and time cheats the memory. big grin But if you come across anything that fits that description please do let me know. smile

    Cheers.

    In his book "Stu Who?", Stu Phillips reveals that Elmer Bernstein, when Stu told him he was working on McCloud, said that he'd give anything for the opportunity to work on some McCloud's.

    Which I always thought was rather awesome smile

    Benny Hill did an homage to three 1970's detectives series: Mc Cloud, Cannon and Poirot.

    Excellent subject choice sir. Such a great series out of a series of great series.

    I'd like to add McCloud season 2 "Encounter with Aries".
    According to IMDb the composer is supposed to be Dick DeBenedictis but I find it sounds far more like Billy Goldenberg.

    As far as the opening themes are concerned, and speaking of Bernstein, both have their own appeal but the second one has the more straight forward Bernstein-like western sound.

    D.S.

    Not officially. but if you can track down a marvellous LP by Norrie Paramor and his Orchestra entitled LAWBEAT , you get a remarkably authentic version of David Shire's marvellous theme, as well as Billy Goldenberg's COLUMBO and BANACEK - excellent version this and Jerry Fielding's MCMILLAN AND WIFE. Must have been, what around 1974 on Contour Label. 2870 369.

    Amazing how much great music from all these great series just lying around Universal vaults doing nothing. You would have thought with the continuing popularity of COLUMBO around the world, that would be a ideal place to start. What marvellous scores by Grusin, Melle, Goldenberg, Williams et al!

    And the John Gregory Orchestra also did a great version of the Shire theme (as well as various other cop shows). But there certainly doesn't appear to be any versions of the most well known McCloud theme by Glen Larson.
    It certainly is a shame about some of the music that seems destined never to get a release, while scores by certain film composers are getting a second or third re-issue on the flimsiest of grounds...

    Oh, I would have loved to have heard a Bernstein episode score for the series.



    SEASON 2:



    "Encounter With Aries" (2.1)
    By: Dick DeBenedictis
    First half: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5lvjfj
    Second half: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5lvjpl

    Please note that Dailymotion uses lots of ad cookies, so if you are using Windows Internet Explorer, I advise temporarily setting the cookies to prompt for third-party cookies and keep blocking them until it stops asking. Then you can undo that setting.

    Highlights:
    First half:
  • 2:25 in.
  • 7:05 in.
  • 13:54 in.
  • 19:49 in.
  • Around 28:20 in.
  • 32:23 in.

    Second half:
  • 14:30 in.
  • 25:09 in.
  • 31:08 in.
  • 37:14 in.

    That's one ballsy bad guy.

    It's certainly a some-what experimental and unusual score. The score uses a zither (or a similar-sounding instrument; there are quite a few) a good deal for some reason.

    The Shire theme has been dropped and Henry Mancini is now credited for the theme ("Theme HENRY MANCINI").

    Referring to the 'Mystery Movie Theme' surely?

    I have all of McCloud on a mixture of Australian and Danish DVDs but I've only watched a few episodes. I used to love the show in its time, but like a lot of things it hasn't - to me anyway - aged very well.

    "The New Mexican Connection" (1)
    By: John Andrew Tartaglia
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OenNTDpWa68

    This is the only effort by Tartaglia for the series.

    Highlights:
  • 7:28/10:43 in.^
  • 24:49 in.^
  • 32:06 in.^
  • 41:36 in. Dramatic lower octave action/chase music.^
  • 51:50 in. Including a water chime (the ascending/descending metal tone sound some of you may remember from The Omega Man film score).^
  • 1:03:15 in.
  • 1:05:44 in. More of the above cue, which closes out the episode. Then the end credits music immediately follows, which is the same (video loads cuts part of it off).^

    LOL, okay, so for some reason part of this episode is cut out and it cuts to a cat laying on the ground while new age flute music plays. It's only like thirty seconds, so be patient. Happens again at 44:04 in. Maybe it's a copyright avoidance thing.

    Glen A. Larson wrote this episode (which has two directors).

    McCloud: "What's the good news?"
    Chief: "You're going home."
    McCloud: "What's the bad news?"
    Chief: "You're coming back."

    Chief: "Of all the police departments in this world, why did he have to be assigned to mine?"



    "The Barefoot Stewardess Caper" (2)
    By: Richard Clements
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UfS72PBfY8
    https://ok.ru/video/7361797949965

    This is the only effort by Clements for the series.

    Highlights:
  • 0:28 in. Little FX.
  • About 3:30 in. Almost SFX free.
  • 6:13 in.
  • About 15:11 in. Also uses a waterchime.
  • 17:23 in.
  • 39:07 in.
  • 52:29 in.
  • About 56:00 in. Some low-key nervous suspense material. There's a brief lull.
  • 1:05:52 in.
  • 1:09:45 in.
  • 1:14:25 in.
  • 1:41:40 in.

    It's not a bad score, I just think Stevens or Fielding would have done better.

    Why world the Paris Chief not know who McCloud is? He is the exact same Paris Chief from the previous season.

    Before the first "Mission: Impossible" film with a sensitive floor and trying to steal something, there was this episode of "McCloud".

  • 52:59 in.^
  • 59:55 in.^
  • 1:04:18 in.^
  • 1:05:47/1:08:50 in.^

    This was a good score.

    This load has interrupting fish instead of a cat.

    You know what sucks? Each "Season" had so few episodes and they chose to not only make a boring episode, but cast as the bad guy, an actor who can't act. Calculon had more emotional in his deliveries.



    "The Colorado Cattle Caper" (4)
    By: Frank DeVol
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVtfSrKStTY

    Back during that time and even into the 1990's, there were things I dreaded about TV series: obligatory episodes for ratings and/or audience draw, such as boxing episodes, race car episodes, an episode dealing with a Father in a church (who will be Irish or Scottish, and a boxer!), and what this episode is about: cattle rustling.
    Fortunately, this works. It's not boring, it's interesting, and full of Weaver's personableness.

    Highlights:
  • 0:00 in. Bongos, quick guiro, low brass, and more -- so much goodness crammed into a long cue running nearly five minutes long.
  • 5:10 in.
  • 7:03 in.
  • 23:15 in.
  • 29:44 in.
  • 38:32 in.
  • 40:35 in: More stuff like from the opening. There's a brief lull.
  • 57:25 in.
  • 1:03:44 in.

    That's pretty much every cue. Really enjoyed DeVol's work. I'd have been happy if he, Shire and DeBenedictis scored the whole series.

    A jam-packed episode with such stars as: Claude Atkins, John Denver, and Farrah Fawcett. Speaking of Denver, I just added a day or two an obscure documentary he did called "Alaska, the American Child" to IMDb (it was missing); scored by Lee Holdridge.

    The ending is a little off; some bad edits, the music shifts around like it's maybe tracked some, and the music ends abruptly. the end credits are cut off, so I don't know if there was an original piece done.

    Billy (Denver): "I sure hope one of us knows what you're doing," to McCloud.



    "This Must Be the Alamo" (5)

    Highlights:

  • 1:28:49 in.
  • 1:29:51 in.
  • 1:33:07 in.^

    There's not a lot of score in the episode, and it's mixed very low most of the time. I don't think Stu was sure how to score this bland episode that just goes on and on and on, and I think the producers didn't care for the score. On a set of season four scoring, at might include the last cue, but I also might skip the whole thing; depends on how much room is remaining.

    You know what I find hilarious? The cryptologist found nothing, but still had a meeting where he took photos, put them on slides, had everyone wait while the room was darkened and then showed them the slides. All that work for nothing.

    Also, amusing nod to "Gunsmoke" when the bad guy tells McCloud he's maybe getting carried away with "that cowboy stuff" and that "this isn't Dodge city".

    Lord, the fire scene is painful because damn near nobody can act! Diana Muldaur can't act (and she's been M.I.A. on the show for a bit now), the guy playing her nephew is almost Calculon bad, the apartment building desk lady is painfully bad, the guy who came out a door asking what the arsonist was doing was bad. Stu really had to do some heavy lifting here (for eight and-a-half minutes!). Then later in the episode during the 49:22 highlight, another bad actress (the lady "crying"). It's like nobody cared, the director, the producers, casting department. Not even lighting seemed to care that much, as at one point a scene wasn't staged right to avoid filming lights reflecting off a vehicle; at night so brightly it looked like permanent lightning -- and super super obvious. The whole thing is a never-ending shlog to get threw.

    When I got the complete McCloud Season 1 from Australia, featuring the episodes in their original form, I really liked the soundtrack to the pilot. If that was ever released on a cd, I would buy it immediately.
