SEASON 1:

I'd like to apologize in advance about the weird sounds quality on all the videos. Every single Youtube and Dailymotion channel I could find, had the same problem. If you know of channels that have videos that don't, or episodes here and there that do not, feel free to let me know and I'll use those. As a result I am just noting cues for suite purposes, but will not make suites with audio like this.

If I don't mention an episode, that should mean it has no credited composer. I double checked most the loads against IMDb (found some missing credits while at it), so hopefully I have everything covered.

Lionel Newman may be credited as the conductor on all season one episodes, so I won't name him every single time.

Attention readers: I am implementing a new system that is nothing more than a note to myself; for cues that I want to include in a suite, for now on I will denote them with ^ symbol. It has no special meaning to anyone else but myself. No, the lack of an up arrow symbol doesn't mean the cue is bad (it just may have too much SFX or FX for suite use or just isn't worth my time to edit and include). Hence forth this system will be in all future threads and pre-exiting threads that I go back to for missed episodes. Anything in ( ) are just notes to the arrow and you need not bother with that.



"Ken-Tuck-E"
By: Lionel Newman
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blaNm8dT2kg

    Very cool to see you taking on this show as there's some really great scoring here by Steiner, Courage, Mullendore, Drasnin, Stevens, Murray (and others).

    Looking forward to hearing your comments. Appreciate your efforts.

    Really interesting, some of these composer pairings! I wonder if they actually collaborated together on melodic material, one composer using the other's melody and such...

  • 35:40 in.
  • 37:20 in.
  • 43:04 in.
  • 46:54 in.^

    Like Lionel Newman, Steiner creates some material that invokes Herrmann's score to the film "North By Northwest".
    There's also another theme in there a lot like the main theme from "The Wind and the Lion".

    "Cain's Birthday: Part 2"
    By: Morton Stevens
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jo-KiB4ZuQ8

    These are the only two episodes Stevens scored.

    Highlights:

  • 27:49 in.^
  • 36:44 in.
  • 38:56 in. Fort attack action music.
  • Around 47:40 in.^

    Two good scores. It's a shame he didn't do anymore for the series.

    By a freaky coincidence, Stevens also worked on a show called "Cain's Hundred", for which only provided ... two episode scores.

  • 15:57 in.^
  • 22:02 in.
  • 34:15 in.
  • 43:15 in.^(44:25)

    A lot of low-key mood/tension/suspense music. On a set of season one scoring, I wouldn't include much of it. In fact, by freaky coincidence, the only cues I'd include are the ones with up arrows by them.

    Did you see the wolf/dog head in the clouds?

    SEASON 2:

    Lionel Newman may be credited as the conductor on all season two episodes, so I won't name him every single time.



    "Empire of the Lost"
    By: Alexander Courage
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJ8ZQyS6p6o

    One again Edward Mulhare guest stars. Shame he wasn't playing the same character again; that would have been a nice bit of continuity. And he'll be back for another episode as well, again playing a different British officer. Apparently the only people who can work for the King to lead men, is Edward Mulhare.

    You know, I bet a number of composers, after that first season, were wrangling to get to work on the show.

    I dare say Courage should have at least gotten an Emmy nomination for this episode score.
    Random thought: for a hypothetical "North By Northwest 2", Courage would have been a good choice as composer.

    There's an actor by the name of Chubby Johnson. I wonder if he knows Dick Trickle, Dick Army, Thomas Wanker, Dick Joy, Peter Wood, Dick Marx, and Jack Wiener.....

    Highlights:

    An overall serviceable, but unremarkable score. On a set of season two scoring, I'd only include the two cues that make up the 46:19 highlight.

    Isn't that William Shatner being executed in the opening of the episode? IMDb doesn't show him and neither do the end credits (just in case it was missing from IMDb, I checked it).

    Murray should have gotten an Emmy nomination for this episode score. Varied, colorful, and full of ideas. I cited nearly every cue; I may have skipped like three cues.

    This episode re-visions how Daniel Boone met Mingo. He met Mingo in the first or second episode of the series. In fact, the series quickly forgot about that and only a handful of episodes in was treating Mingo like he'd been there for at least a year.

    That is a delightfully memorable theme Steiner provided. It's rather close to the theme from the TV series "Custer" (yes, I covered that one). I'm tempted to say Steiner should have gotten an Emmy nomination for this episode score.

    In this episodes Boone says to Mingo that he'll "live to be a hundred". So, I went ahead and looked up Ed Ames (who played Mingo) to find out when he died. Low and behold, he's still alive! He turns 94 on July 9, so in another six years he may well live to be a hundred.
