Forum - Looking for a soundtrack

Need help with movie title. :(

Looking for a title, and if possible a copy of the soundtrack. A movie
from the 50s, around or just before The High and the Mighty. It's a
western film which probably wouldn't be familiar today. The theme
was a solo whistler, accompanied by rhythmic strings and a muffled
tympani. I don't believe it charted, but it did get some radio play
around that time. I know this is precious little information, but it's all
I can remember about the movie. I hope someone can help with this!

Hi Gayspiritwarrior,
Around THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY (1954) was the western GUNFIGHT AT THE O.K. CORRAL (1957), with music composed also by Dimitri Tiomkin. The main song started with a solo whistle. You can find it going through the following link. The whistle starts at 0:16. I hope it helps:

On the other hand, I can hardly remember any other western soundtrack pre-Tiomkin including a solo whistle, until the arrival of Ennio Morricone in the sixties.

Kind regards,
