SEASON 1:

A short-lived 1967 series. Only seventeen episodes.

If I don't mention an episode, that means it has no credited composer.

As there are so few episodes scores, I will open this post with just one, to draw the thread out and bring the music to the attention of others.

The series main theme is by Leith Stevens.



"Sabers in the Sun" (series premiere)
By: Richard Markowitz and Leith Stevens (yes, I checked -- both are credited for the score)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6Xnc1uVHjI

This is Markowitz's only effort for the series.

Highlights:
  • 0:00 in. Bumper music.
  • 9:55 in.
  • 12:59 in.
  • 15:21 in.
  • 20:23 in.
  • 22:48 in.
  • 23:50 in.
  • 25:13 in.
  • 27:27 in.
  • 30:52 in.
  • 34:10 in. The first few seconds sound like the theme from "J*A*G". A score cue immediately follows this source music.
  • 40:41 in.
  • 43:05 in.
  • 47:04 in.
  • 47:50 in.

    Out-of-context quotes...
    "Thrust at it!"

    Lady: "Will you come tonight?"
    Custer: "My privilege and my pleasure."

    It was must-viewing in the L family as our next door neighbor from earliest days (Peter Palmer) was in the supporting cast. Yep, the series bombed more or less.

    By: Leith Stevens
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JwcXvPWI64

    Highlights:

  • 14:30 in.

    Custer: "Treaties are made by men, and sometimes carried out by fools."
    Indian: "If your treaties mean nothing to you, then how can they mean anything to us?!"
    Custer: "Nothing can stop the growth of this country; not the Cheyanne, not the Sioux. No power on Earth can prevent the two halves of this nation from joining together. The treaties, with all their faults, are all we have; we must try to make them work."

    I remember this well although supposedly this show was one of the main reasons Irwin Allen's The Time Tunnel only lasted one season--Custer was an incoming exec's pet project and TT was dropped to make room for Custer, which couldn't even make it past half a season...

     By:   Howard L   (Member)

    Say it ain't so. I was like in 5th grade and never missed an ep of TT. Boo!

    Continuing SEASON 1:




    "Suspicion"
    By: Leith Stevens
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFZLDOqklXs

    Highlights:
  • 0:04 in.
  • 2:53 in.
  • 4:28 in.
  • 8:08 in.
  • 11:56 in.
  • 13:29 in.
  • 17:33 in.
  • 26:14 in.
  • 30:25 in.
  • 36:08 in.
  • 37:25 in.
  • 39:32 in.
  • 41:57 in.
  • 44:58 in.

    Even though I didn't cite any of it because it's just drumming (from these last two episodes), I love Stevens Indian drumming music. I just like the simple ideas and the drums used. Just works for me.



    "Spirit Woman"
    By: Harry Geller
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR1hud6zKmM

    This is Geller's only effort for the series.

    Highlights:
  • 0:04 in. Driving brass and snare drum lead chase music for a good minute of the cue.
  • 2:59 in.
  • 4:51 in.
  • 9:07 in.
  • 12:57 in.
  • 15:31 in. And the cue after the commercial break.
  • 20:53 in.
  • 29:47 in.
  • 36:50 in.
  • 3826: in.
  • 39:15 in.
  • 41:34 in.
  • 44:58 in.

    While Stevens is clearly the musical driving force of the series, I'd have been fine hearing more from Geller.

    The series debuted on ABC-TV on 6 September 1967, but only lasted until December of that year before it was cancelled. Twentieth Century Fox took the 52-minute pilot episode, added footage from another episode of the series, and turned it into a 90-minute feature entitled THE LEGEND OF CUSTER, which began playing overseas in the summer of 1968. Is the feature version available for viewing?

    Finishing SEASON 1:




    "The Gauntlet"
    By: Irving Gertz
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FlpJ3XRqQQ

    This is Gertz's only effort for the series.

    Highlights:
  • 0:04 in.
  • 4:30 in.
  • 7:46 in.
  • 12:38 in.
  • 18:15 in.
  • 21:29 in.
  • 25:00 in.
  • 27:23 in. Just a tad over seven minutes long, mostly action material.
  • 35:23 in.
  • 39:09 in.
  • 45:33 in. And the cue after the commercial break.
  • 49:28 in.

    As usual for episode scores of this series, I cited pretty much every single cue.

    Guest-starring Edward Mulhare.



    "Pursued"
    By: Joseph Mullendore
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XG0MZo8Ko8

    Highlights:
  • 0:04 in.
  • 2:11 in.
  • 6:30 in.
  • 10:10 in. Lovely strings-lead cue with little FX and only a tiny bit of dialogue at the end.
  • 13:49 in.
  • 16:47 in.
  • 18:22/18:56/19:06 in.
  • 23:16 in.
  • 25:21 in. And the cue after the commercial break.
  • 33:41 in.
  • 36:33 in. And the cue after the commercial break.
  • 42:12 in.
  • 44:35 in. And the cue after the commercial break.

    I haven't heard much by Mullendore, but I got to say his work here is impressive.

    This is the final credited score of the series.



    No revival pilots, no remakes, no TV movies.
