FSM releases The Bravados and The Illustrated Man
2-Oct-2001 - Film Score Monthly has released The Bravados, (1958) a stark and realistic western starring Gregory Peck as a man seeking revenge on a band of outlaws. The film features a powerful and handsome score co-written by two Hollywood greats: Alfred Newman and Hugo Friedhofer. The score to The Bravados was credited in the film to Lionel Newman, who did not write a note but supervised the score's recording in Germany during a Hollywood musicians strike in 1958 (Bernard Kaun conducted).
For the second release FSM returns to the treasures of the Warner Bros. archives with a Jerry Goldsmith masterpiece: The Illustrated Man (1969). This premiere release features the complete score in stereo and in correct sequence, including the electronic cues and, most importantly, the female vocalise for the main and end titles. The Illustrated Man is an absolute gem.
