New from Film Score Monthly
9-Feb-2007 - Film Score Monthly has released a tripleheader of Silver Age scores from the late 1960s and early 1970s: The Last Run (1971), an adventure film starring George C. Scott as a gangland driver who comes out of retirement to escort an escaped criminal and the man's girlfriend from Spain to France. The melodic score is by Jerry Goldsmith. From the same composer is Crosscurrent (1971) also known as The Cable Car Murder, a busted TV pilot aired as a TV movie. Goldsmith's unorthodox score, performed entirely by rhythm section, is quite brief, but a jewel in its tense, angular "mod" action style. The Scorpio Letters (1967) was a TV movie starring Alex Cord as a secret agent uncovering a blackmail ring in London and Paris. The project was the first feature-length assignment for Dave Grusin, who provided jazzy, moody music often resembling his work for The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. This CD is entirely in stereo.
FSM's second CD is M-G-M's Raintree County (1957), a widescreen spectacular of the late Hollywood Golden Age. It was the major landmark work as a composer of Johnny Green (1908-1989), who was, at the time, the head of music at M-G-M, and responsible for the studio's legendary music quality both in its underscoring and movie musicals. FSM's definitive edition features a comprehensive chronological program of Green's masterpiece (containing many previously unreleased cues and passages), along with a bonus section of alternate and unused cues. The entire score (save one-half of one cue) has been remixed and remastered from the original 35mm stereo master tapes for vastly improved sound quality.
