Dimitri Tiomkin's Last Train From Gun Hill
18-Jun-2011 - From Counterpoint Records comes the score for Last Train From Gun Hill. This movie reunited several filmmakers from one of the western genre’s most celebrated classics, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957), amongst them composer Dimitri Tiomkin. Kirk Douglas plays Marshal Matt Morgan, whose wife is raped and killed by the son of an old friend, cattle baron Craig Belden (Anthony Quinn). Morgan’s attempt to bring the murderer to justice is the focus of the action, and Carolyn Jones as Belden’s abused mistress adds another dimension to the human drama. Tiomkin’s score—largely based on an unused song—is colorful and melodic in the composer’s trademark western style. This premiere release of Last Train From Gun Hill is newly remastered from 35mm three-track stereo music masters supplemented by cues from the film’s finished monaural music stem, given a light stereo ambiance to enhance listenability. Bonus cues include source music, alternates, and a demo version of Tiomkin’s song (with lyrics by Paul Francis Webster) performed by jazz vocalist Kitty White.
