Press Release from Varese Sarabande:
We are excited to announce the limited-edition release of Gary Chang’s 1986 score to Firewalker. This long out-of-print soundtrack is making its debut on CD. Gary Chang’s score has been described by the L.A. Times as a “seductive, Latin-tinged score especially helpful in getting you in the escapist mood.”
The film was directed by J. Lee Thompson (Guns of Navarone) and stars Chuck Norris, Louis Gossett, Jr. and Melody Anderson. Norris and Gossett play Max Donigan and Leo Porter, two soldiers of fortune whose adventures rarely result in any notable gain. They are befriended by an inscrutable woman of mystery, Patricia (Anderson). Patricia's map leads them on a quest for treasure in Central America. The films title comes from the powerful guardian of the treasure.
