SEASON 1:

October should be a month of thrillers, closing with Halloween, so that's what my TV show threads will reflect. Hope you all enjoy.

Attention readers: I have been implementing a new system that is nothing more than a note to myself; for cues that I want to include in a suite one day, 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.

    This series aired on "A.B.C. Wide World Of Entertainment" in the U.S. and Randall Larson got this series confused with the Revue Television series that aired from 1960 to 1962 in his first edition of "Musique Fantastique".

    I coincidentally bought the DVD of the first season 10 days ago and have been watching the first four episodes so far. Since I had never seen this series before, I am surprised by the fact that Laurie Johnson's music has been used so sparsely and has been mixed so low overall. Being used to his prominent stuff in THE AVENGERS, it's very different here and I'd say that you hardly notice his contribution save for the brief opening title theme also repeated to separate the 3 chapters of each episode. However the series itself is very interesting.

    Hopefully the Shout! Factory releases don't have the hideous titles made by Dolphin Productions plastered on them for the US airings...

    "I'm The Girl He Wants To Kill" really creeped me out on watching as a kid...

    "One Deadly Owner"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EOpovUNIz18

    Highlights:
  • 0:40 in.^
  • 3:33 in. And the source cue that immediately follows it (some kind of laid-back jazz/soft rock weird combo).^

    Jay


    My understanding is that Paul Clay functioned as a music editor on this series.
    I think what he did was to track Johnson's music into those segments which did not have any original compositions for them.

    Paul B. Cay was a music coordinator and then later on a music supervisor on the series, however, while verifying credits, I found he is credited for one episode score, so I added him to the title. And it's a good score, too.

    Finishing SEASON 2:




    "Ring Once for Death" (A.K.A.: "Death in Small Doses")
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Zcr6M89HNo

    Highlights:
  • 0:52 in.^

  • 1:04:07 in.^
  • 1:05:27 in.^
  • 1:09:34 in.^

    Ohhh, I love an evil butler. And well cast, too. Worth watching the whole thing as opposed to just the parts during the highlights.

    Evil Butler: "I assure you: You won't live to regret it."

    Evil Butler: "Fire is your great leveler; makes no distinction between master and bondsman."



    "K is for Killing"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11WjUEcUclg (Note to Me: Find a better quality load)

    Highlights:
  • 0:18 in.^

  • 51:44/52:52 in.^
  • 57:13 in.^
  • 59:57 in.
  • 1:02:35 in.

    I could not find a load with the original opening/closing credits.

    One of the best scores of the series so far, which isn't many since while episodes had good cues and I noted them, many episodes before were kind of all over the place on consistency and cohesive music. The use of jazz stylings and an upbeat re-occurring theme, are all good fun. The evil butler episode score above was also one of the best.



    "Sign it Death"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DY-SiCmHXM4

    Highlights:
  • 1:41 in.^
  • 5:00 in.^
  • 9:02 in.^
  • 11:37 in.^
  • 12:41 in. On an official release, I think this cue and the above one go together.^
  • 13:54 in. I might even put this one of the end of the two above.^
  • 15:14 in.
  • 17:52 in.
  • 1:00:50 in.
  • 1:03:23 in.
  • 1:04:48 in.^
  • 1:07:24 in.^

    The moody woodwind cues sound a lot like Herrmann. Perhaps another contender for a good score.

    "Golden rule, lad: Move first, think afterwards."



    "Who Killed Lamb?"
    NO COMPOSER CREDITED
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_F15hNuVoA

    Highlights:
  • 59:40 in.

    NOTE:
    This is a very unusual entry. This "episode" was added to the show in re-runs and put on DVD as an episode of the series, but not only was it not part of the original series, it's made by an entirely different production company and not like the rest of the episodes. This has no businesses being connected to the show.

    There is no composer credited, so it's a track job. And there's very little tracked. I cited a tracked cue simply because I liked it. Not even IMDb had a list of the tracked music (sometimes you can find that for episodes of British series; somebody has a lot of free time on their hands!).

    Man alive this guy has a raging murder boner. At least he gets some good comeuppance.

    Surely another contender for one of the series' best episode scores.

    * = I hate stupid, stupid, stupid shit like this in productions: Where a woman is being chased and instead of yelling for help, telling people she's being chased by a murderer, and even letting her boss know what happened, she stays quiet. This doesn't reflect any reality I know of. And it's even worse in this episode: instead of running to help or safety, she ran to work so he would know where she works. Lord. Even Rod Serling is rolling his eyes in his grave.

    And the stupidity doesn't end. She just needs to die, get it over with. I'm now rooting for the bad guy.

    There's long been debate about Paul Clay's role. He is also credited for the music (apart from the theme) for the ITC series 'The Adventurer' but I think the general opinion has always been that he was an editor or music supervisor (a role he occupied in later 'Columbo' seasons too, by which time he'd moved to the USA) and not a composer.

    'Who Killed Lamb' was actually a stand-alone episode which was presented as a 'Thriller' but was in fact produced by Yorkshire TV and not, as I recall, anything really to do with the Brian Clemens series.

    Anyone interested in 'Thriller' may be interested in the book A THRILLER IN EVERY CORNER by Martin Marshall. It is a very detailed book about the production of the series, as well as being a very large book:

    Randall Larson got this series confused with the Revue Television series that aired from 1960 to 1962 in his first edition of "Musique Fantastique".

    Which itself was dubbed Boris Karloff Presents in the UK.


    And before "Thriller", there was "Starring Boris Karloff", which was Karloff's first television series that aired on A.B.C. in '49.

    Perhaps another contender for one of the series' best scores. Or at least a second tier effort.

    This is the second episode I have noticed where he gets a "Music by" credit, whereas every other episode it is "Music Composed by".

    It's a little all over the place to a degree, but I think this is perhaps a borderline second tier episode score.

    I am 100% okay with these episodes (maybe half a dozen now) that open with sexy girl legs. Oh, and no girl living alone is running to the phone wearing a towel. I demand realism!

    For the guys here: 18:10 in. You're welcome. She's also in a small two-piece bikini about ten minutes earlier (and again at 21:42 in and 23:55 in).

    The remake opening/closing credits of this episode are fucked up. They both skip crediting Johnson with the score, and only credit one of the editors (three are just skipped over).

    And the original opening/closing credits have different attributes for Johnson. The opening says "Music by" and the closing says "Music Written by".

    This final episode is also one of the rare episodes that has a credited director of cinematography. Normally only the cameramen are credited.

    "A bottle of bourbon, you said? I'll help you sample that, don't worry."




    Tomorrow, for the month of Halloween, another thriller TV series.
