Elmer Bernstein's Cannon For Cordoba
14-Jul-2007 - Varèse Sarabande has released in the Masters Film Music series two never before available westerns by the great Elmer Bernstein! The first one, Cannon for Cordoba (1970) is a full-blooded action tale of an Army intelligence team (led by George Peppard and Don Gordon) trying to foil the criminal plans of bandito/general Cordoba (Raf Vallone) in the turbulent Texas-Mexico border skirmishes of 1912. Bernstein’s score features one of his most vigorous main themes. The rest of the score covers a lot of ground, including a section that is a veritable Elmer Bernstein mariachi street fiesta. On this double CD also the score for From Noon Till Three, a movie in which Charles Bronson demonstrates an unexpected comedic talent as a small-time bank robber who inadvertently finds himself a national hero. Elmer Bernstein’s score is absolutely captivating and charming, beautiful and fun. It’s witty and winsome. It’s a highly original take on the western.
Buy from Varèse Sarabande or from Colosseum Records (for Europe).
