Short-lived western series from 1967 revolving around a well spoken and mild-mannered lawyer named [John Drummond] Dundee, and his cow polk assistant of sorts ("he's my law firm man"), [Dennis] Culhane.
The series features two catchy memorable theme music cues, one by David Rose and the other I am not certain about. The series opens and closes with the same theme, but somewhere abouts the middle it switches. I can't tell you if they experimented with a new theme or if episodes were aired out-of-order. I suspect they were aired out-of-order and the Rose theme was the new one, making Fried the composer who likely started the series.
The IMDb titles for the series are inaccurate. Not a single episode has the word "Brief" ending it. Episode titles are in quotation marks. The word "Brief" appears outside quotation marks, italicized, and underneath titles. It's part of the legal gimmick premise of the show.
Please Note: Because of the previous obscurity of the series (no full episode has ever appeared in all the years I have looked prior to this), I have recorded the full score to all episodes (even track job episodes). This audio is just being saved and put aside until such time as most or all the episodes appear, then I can work them to replace bad parts with cleaner parts found in track job episodes. So it could be a year or two before you ever see suites.
While I will not be covering track-job efforts like I have been doing for "The Virginian", I will link to the episodes where videos are available, so you can watch this obscure and un-purchasable/un-rentable series.
EDIT: According to the ctva.biz page for the series, it was aired out-of-order. I will include by each episode title the production number according to that website.
Attention readers: I have been using a 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. The system does not mean that I will make a suite or that one has been made, it's simply for my own reference if and when I do decide to.
Well it sounds to me like they just should have put the second quotation mark after "Brief", but gramatically speaking the word *must* be part of the titles, just like "Affair" is part of all those Man from UNCLE titles.
The word "Affair" is in quotation marks on "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", thus making it part of the title. It was an annoying gimmick for this western show and shouldn't have been done, or at least put inside the quotation marks.
Now if only someone could upload all of The Legend of Jesse James. UCLA has a copy of every episode in their film and television library, but the show’s supposed to be really good and had multiple good composers working on it, including supposedly Jerry Goldsmith for one episode (but recently confirmed NOT “Things Don’t Just Happen” — the person who told you it was that episode was wrong; it was scored by Alexander Courage).
