  1. While Ennio may have said something to the effect, I know Herrmann commented on RRB’s music, saying something to the effect that the opening title didn’t fit because “it’s a train of death”. Here’s Elmer Bernstein recounting the story: “It [TORN CURTAIN] was very brilliant stuff, but it was part of a terminal misunderstanding between him and Hitchcock. Hitchcock wanted a romantic score [but didn't get it], because Herrmann didn’t think like that… The last time I saw him, we had a fight only over one thing. A dear friend of mine, Richard Rodney Bennett, had written a score for a film called MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS. He had … a bit of a sort of pastiche score. This waltz he did for the train when the train takes off. I thought it was just brilliant. The way I think of other composers work as brilliant is when I say: I wish I had thought of that.” (laughter) “Herrmann and I were talking about what was going on in music, what have your heard lately and so on… and this a clue to where he went wrong with Hitchcock. I said [what I thought about] what Richard Rodney Bennett did with the train, the waltz and so on… he said: ‘It was ridiculous, that train was a train of death!’ – Oh come on give me a break the Orient Express a train of death? Who could take that film seriously? But he was very intense. That’s the way he saw things. If he would have done it, it would have been a train of death.” (laughter) Source: http://www.bernardherrmann.org/articles/interview-bernstein/
  2. No need to apologize, @Imperivm. I try to keep the listings updated with any new movies/series added to the sites, but I don't post messages to this thread when I do that. I only post updates when they involve new music or songs being made available. And thanks for the heads-up on Amazon adding The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. Appears that they didn't, at least nothing was posted on their FYC site! And even in 2019, they listed three films but didn't include any score/songs on the site.
  3. Marcus Brody’s daughter? Indy chosen as her godfather? Total guess.
  4. Great finds, @enderdrag64!! I have added those links to the Emergency entry in the initial post. The "reelcrafter" links lead to streaming MP3s which have expirations on them, so I don't believe that I can provide direct MP3 links (i.e., they'll be expired by the time someone tries to access them).
  5. NEW SCORES AVAILABLE: Amazon Studios All the Old Knives (Rebekka Karijord and Jon Ekstrand) [25 cues, 1:32:59] Emergency (René G. Boscio) [17 cues, 27:24]
  6. it was previously posted here… https://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/34736-john-williams-at-the-kennedy-center-jurassic-park-ltp-pre-concert-talk-june-24-2022/&do=findComment&comment=1901127
  7. Direct link to MP3 from the NPR site… https://ondemand.npr.org/anon.npr-mp3/npr/atc/2022/08/20220822_atc_encore_composer_john_williams_and_cellist_yo-yo_ma_assemble_a_gathering_of_friends.mp3?orgId=1&topicId=1039&d=480&p=2&story=1118843652&dl=1&sc=siteplayer&size=7696763&dl=1&aw_0_1st.playerid=siteplayer
  8. Haha!! I'm sure this wasn't what you were going for, but for whatever reason, it immediately made me think of "Get Me to the Church on Time" from My Fair Lady!! LOL
  9. I'd say upper midwest, like parts of Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Two examples, the secretary from Ferris Bueller's Day Off... ... and Frances McDormand and many others from Fargo:
  10. Sure, but having the font to replace the whole "TEMPLE OF DOOM" portion might have resulted in a cleaner result.
  11. Looks to be this font: https://www.ffonts.net/Cambridge-Medium.font
