FSM's April releases
19-Apr-2005 - On the heels of Film Score Monthly's release of Where Eagles Dare/Operation Crossbow comes another 2CD set of classic Ron Goodwin war soundtracks: 633 Squadron(1964) and Submarine X-1(1969). Both of these
films are United Artists releases of Allied missions during World War II to attack Axis positions in Norwegian fjords - one by air, the other by sea. Disc one of this release features 633 Squadron: first the album program, followed by a suite of additional cues from a 1/4" monaural tape in Goodwin's possession. Disc two features the complete score of Submarine X-1,
mastered from Goodwin's personal 1/4" stereo tapes. Green Mansions(1959) is one of the most unusual soundtracks created during Hollywood's Golden Age. The film stars Audrey Hepburn and Anthony Perkins in an Amazonian adventure/romance for which M-G-M enlisted one of the greatest composers of the Americas: Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959).
When the exigencies of film composition proved too much for Villa-Lobos, the studio relied upon their venerable Bronislau Kaper to adapt Villa-Lobos' score to fit the nuances and timings of the screen action. For more info and ordering, visit Film Score Monthly/Screen Archives Entertainment.
