Some of you know that Morton Stevens scored a pilot with Peter Graves in the late '60's called "Call to Danger", but what you may now know is that there were three pilots made.

As only the first pilot has popped up in all the years I have been searching, I have not been able to make any suites for them. The channel that had that pilot, was copyrighted out of existence before I could do anything.


PILOT #1:

In 1961 the first pilot was attempted. The cast was totally different and the plot was a little different.

The score was composed and conducted by Leonard Rosenman.

It was burned off on the pilot burner program "General Electric Theater".

PILOT #2:

The second pilot aired in 1968 and starred a pre-"Mission: Impossible" Peter Graves. The general plot was changed some.

The score was by Morton Stevens. Since I know MRAUDIO will handle the other details, I'll let him have the honors.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVtkQRpjkZ0 (video is mis-labeled and is in fact the 1968 pilot)



PILOT #3:

In 1973 a third pilot was filmed, this time almost none of the ideas of the original were kept. Peter Graves got a second chance.

The score was by Laurence Rosenthal. I have no idea if Stevens' theme was kept anywhere (it is certainly not opening the pilot).

Thank you, Justin. Mort wrote this Pilot in 1967 and was so proud of his theme, CALL TO DANGER that he decided to include it on the original HAWAII FIVE-O Soundtrack Album. Also, portions of the theme were made into the CBS SPECIAL PRESENTATION jingle used back in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
