The latest release from Intrada is a remastered edition of their two-disc, out-of-print MUSSOLINI: THE UNTOLD STORY, the 1985 three-part miniseries starring George C. Scott as Il Duce, co-starring David Suchet, Lee Grant, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Raul Julia, Virginia Madsen, Gabriel Byrne and Robert Downey Jr. The symphonic score was composed by seven-time Emmy winner (and two-time Oscar nominee) Laurence Rosenthal.


Quartet has just released a two-disc edition of John Addison's light-hearted orchestral score for SWASHBUCKLER, the 1976 pirate adventure starring Robert Shaw, Genevieve Bujold, James Earl Jones, Peter Boyle, Beau Bridges, and Geoffrey Holder (yes, there is a big studio film where Robert Shaw is the romantic hero and James Earl Jones is his sidekick). Quartet's release features the full original score plus extra cues on Disc One, and the original 1976 LP sequencing on Disc Two.

Aisle Seat 9-8: The 23rd Anniversary Edition!
Posted By: Andy Dursin 9/7/2020 - 10:00 PM
In a weird year that’s going to end up being a patchwork of new releases and catalog titles, there’s little doubt the most noteworthy UHD package in the latter category will likely be Sony’s stupendous COLUMBIA CLASSICS VOLUME 1 (Sony). This Limited Edition deluxe set includes the premiere of no less than six varied titles from Columbia’s filmography, each one presented in glorious new 2160p HVEC encoded transfers with ample extras. As of now, the films in this gorgeous set – which also includes a bonus DVD and a glossy, photo-packed book – aren’t scheduled to be sold individually, making this the only way you can appreciate these Sony 4K restorations.

Film Score Friday 9/4/20
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 9/3/2020 - 10:00 PM
La-La Land has announced three new releases for the week of September 15 - the soundrack to MUNSTER, GO HOME!, the feature film spinoff of TV's The Munsters, featuring the score by the show's composer Jack Marshall (father of producer-director Frank Marshall and composer Phil Marshall); the first release of John Powell's score for the 1999 romantic comedy FORCES OF NATURE, starring Sandra Bullock, Ben Affleck and Maura Tierney; and the third edition of the label's QUINN MARTIN COLLECTION featuring unreleased music from the shows of the veteran TV producer, this one a two-disc set with Patrick Williams' music for the long-running cop series THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO, pairing Karl Malden and Michael Douglas, and the short-lived spy series A MAN CALLED SLOANE, starring Robert Conrad and Dan O'Herlihy.


The latest release from the Varese Sarabande CD Club is a Deluxe Edition of the score to WILD WILD WEST, director Barry Sonnenfeld's infamous yet lavish 1999 feature film version of the beloved 1960s Western/spy/fantasy TV series. The surprising but inspired choice to score the film was Elmer Bernstein, who wrote some of Hollywood's greatest Western scores. Varese Sarabande released a score CD featuring 30 minutes of the film's music back in 1999; the Deluxe Edition features a whopping 76 minutes of music, including cues composed by or with Elmer's son, Peter Bernstein.
