You can see the lengths by clicking on the videos.

I'm asking if your suites capture all the music or most of it, i.e., is there more than 30 minutes' worth of music in the film?

Oh, sorry. I didn't keep that kind of track.

Thanks for the suites, Justin.

The main title really is a spectacular composition. Four minutes of exultant, adventurous, thundering exotic pageantry that sounds antiquated and 'a bit much' even for 1985. Love every second of it.

Someone ping the Thaxman onto this one stat!

Yeah, another one of the film's many faults was that it thought it (being the film) was such a big deal it could spend four minutes watching a boat plod around threw the waters of a fictional country. Well, at least Mort Garson got a chance to make that fantastic cue.

Not many scoring credits to his name:
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0308600/

This garbage was his second-to-last score. I bet the last film he scored also sucked.

None of this ultimately matters, as the two albums I posted previously are what he is remembered for.
