I'd love to know if that music box that reappears throughout the film was a JW composition too.


The music box plays Debussy’s Clair de Lune:

 


It’s also got its own SABAM listing for its use in the film:

JFK 82:06

 

Wait, so the OST has less than half of the score used in the film? I thought that score had barely anything unreleased!

 

43 minutes of unreleased score is quite substantial!

 

Makes me wonder why none of the labels have touched the Oliver Stone scores after all these years, quite bizarre.

I think this total may be off a bit because of reuse of some of the cues. For example, ‘The Conspirators’ is 4 minutes long but is apparently used for 14 minutes of the film!

 

From this thread, it sounds like there’s about 20 minutes in the film unreleased:

And is there any reason this particular score would be difficult to license/release for one of the labels?

 

I recall MV saying years back that it was in the works, but it's never seen the light of day.

That's exciting! Wonder if any of the labels are working on it now... I guess it has to be Intrada, if any.

I believe multiple studios and also because the OST album is tied with the source cues.

Interesting. Surely they can just take the score cues from the album and ignore the non-JW songs?

 

Certainly wasn't an issue for Always (well, there were issues that help up that release, but I don't think they were related to the songs on the OST).

Another title ticked off!

 

And we can be optimistic about Eastwick now Perseverance has (hopefully) lost the OST licence. And I believe BOT4J is the last Williams MCA OST that hasn't been expanded, so there's a good chance that title might be in the works.

Excluding the Disney stuff, there's only 3 Williams scores left to expand in the 80s!

 

It's pretty breathtaking that every non-Disney score between The Sugarland Express and The Witches of Eastwick has now been expanded.

 

And I think Mike did all of them except The Missouri Breaks and Heartbeeps (but I think both releases were comprehensive regardless).
