  2. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/richard-donner-dies-superman-lethal-193107966.html Needless to say he directed the greatest superhero film that featured the greatest superhero score. Plus he did pretty good work in other genres.
  3. Hi to all JWFN members. It is great to see such dedication and knowledge to the man who has scored more than just the movies. On that note The History Press and I would like to share word of a new book published now in the UK and September 1st 2018 in the US. John Williams is the spine and soul of this book. Mark O’Connell didn’t want to be Luke Skywalker. He wanted to be one of the mop-haired kids on the Star Wars toy commercials. And he would have done it had his parents had better pine furniture and a condo in California. Star Wars, Jaws, Close Encounters of th
  4. I’m asking this because at this time, in the USA and Canada, no orchestra has booked the L2P concert of ‘Superman.’ I realize that the pandemic lockdown has caused many orchestras to end their seasons earlier than planned and as a result, there’s less money coming in and in the end there’s a shrinking budget for these orchestras to book these L2P concerts. What really set me off is a schedule change from the San Francisco Symphony. They do more of these concerts than any USA orchestra. They cancelled the world premiere L2P concert of “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon”, and replaced it wit
  5. I'm looking for 2 versions that were broadcasted in Australia on CH9 or 10 during 1988 and 1990 period and the other 2 that were on broadcasted on Station TV Q. thank you SUPERMAN: The Movie ABC network for Australia 1988 & 1990 Theatrical Cut Superman The Movie Brisbane station TVQ-0 1984 Superman II Brisbane station TVQ-0, 9/3/86) including any UK Broadcast version from the 80's and 90's
  6. The below clip is from the film 18 Again! (1988). https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0094593/ Around 45 seconds, the music looks very familiar. Is the music taken from the film Superman (1978) composed by John Williams or taken from some other film? Thanks. https://vimeo.com/331066876
  7. Folks, Jim Bowers who runs the Caped Wonder.com website on the history of the Christopher Reeve Superman Films has just done a podcast with Jay Towers on the release of Superman: The Movie 40th Anniversary Remastered 3CD set. Jim Bowers is also a project consultant on this new set and was also involved in the 2008 FSM Set. Check it out for some unique insight (specifically on the new Fortress of Solitude cue as well as another unreleased snippet on this set) As well as an interesting tease on more Williams upcoming remastered expanded albums. Last but not least yours truly also gets to chim
  8. When was the last time you cried listening to a podcast? I've never cried listening to a podcast but there is a first for everything. I actually had to pull my car over a few weeks ago to wipe away the tears when I first heard this show. I guarantee you will too when you skip to the 44:23 mark of this episode. If you are a fan of film music or film as a whole, this story, which is about John Williams' cue "Leaving Home" from Superman, will open the floodgates. http://underscorepodcast.blogspot.com/2018/11/interview-alan-snelling.html
  9. It seems to me that the Superman march (the A-melody of the march, that is) and The Fanfare are assumed to be merely two interchangeable representations of the title character, but I feel this is inaccurate, at least in the initial score. Every time you hear the A-march outside of the credits in the original film (heard just thrice!), it plays specifically when the focus is on Superman's heroics being admired by other non-main characters. The helicopter rescue is an obvious application of this, as are the ways it later underscores the amazement of the police officers ("The Burglar
  10. Hey, Anyone have the full orchestral score for this cue or know where I can find it? thanks Griga01
  11. On my copy of the (mostly) excellent Rhino release of Superman, there's a glitch in the left channel of the concert version of the Superman theme at about 22 seconds in. I've always thought this to originate from the analogue tapes instead of a fault on my particular disc or the particular batch that my disc comes from - does anyone not hear the glitch?
  12. It's official now. Apparently it draws inspiration from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. Henry Cavill returns, as does David S. Goyer. Nolan is an executive producer. http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/1870/5fzv.jpg Karol
  13. Any of you have heard about this 2014 album? https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/film-classics-vol.-1/id874297330 Film Classics, Vol. 1 - Roy Budd & London Symphony Orchestra1 - "Indiana Jones - Raiders Of The Lost Ark" Suite 2 - "E.T."

  14. It seems they were not pleased with Returns, and want to do a reboot. Will this mean we can kiss Williams' heroic march goodbye forever? Or will they not be able to sepparate it from Superman? Source
  15. Firstly, my apologies if this has been posted before in some way, I did do a search of JWFan but couldn't find any reference to it... Anyway, I stumbled upon this page: http://musicandmotio...d/Superman_Pdf/ Here you'll find a list of PDFs which contain page by page scans of JW's hand-written manuscript for Superman: The Movie (1978)!!! A fascinating insight, it includes title page, table of contents, most of the cues (some are missing sadly, I haven't found them elsewhere) and a printed full-score 'Superman Theme'. The FSM Superman: The Music (1978-88) "Blue Box" liner-notes made several refe
