This is a comments thread about FSM CD: Cleopatra Jones/Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold

Great music there, Bob. Is the first part of that clip the cue which Simon mentioned (in 2011)? It does seem to lean heavily (and joyfully) on the Schifrin sound of ENTER THE DRAGON... or perhaps Simon himself could answer that. Simon?

Hi Graham,

No, the YT clip above is two other cues from the score edited together. IIRC the cues are Casino Fight and Main Title (Instrumental), the latter being a bonus track on the FSM disc.

There are several cues with Schifrinian brass and 'tumbling' drumkit, along with oriental percussion as per Enter the Dragon, but still recognisably Frontiere.

Cheers Simon. There's so much stuff out there, even from years ago, that I haven't got and will probably never get round to getting. It's got the stage that if someone asked me yesterday if this set had ever been released, I'd have said "Don't know." So, another on my "to get" list, at number 138. At my purchase rate of ten CDs a year, I'll be giving it a spin for the first time in 2027. But that's only if no more scores are ever released which would nudge it further down the list. Damn this glut! (First World Problem Number 962).

The beauty and action of Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold

This movie was great fun. It's too bad a couple more weren't made in the 1970s - especially focusing on the globe-hopping angle making Cleo sort of a female Bond.
