Somehow, movies made in the 60’s, shot using a widescreen format but in black and white have this terrific look and feel that widescreen color films can’t offer… and I’m not just referring to the obvious. Take a look at Otto Preminger’s movies. You’ll see what I’m talking about. It’s simply a dramatic format! So, alongside our new release of The Hustler
, which won an Academy Award for its widescreen black and white cinematography, we’re featuring on sale the haunting and powerful Paul Glass score from Otto Preminger’s Bunny Lake Is Missing
- also shot on widescreen black and white film. Enjoy the drama!
On the evening of Monday’s Presidents Day holiday, we’ll be posting artwork and sound samples to our newest Intrada CD release. It carries a certain weight by virtue of being inexplicably one of just three soundtracks to be released on CD for a composer with a vast catalog of soundtracks on LP. From absolutely pristine condition stereo masters, no less - and greatly expanded, too. The movie is legendary. If it’s your kind of music, this one’s hard to beat. Check back tomorrow eve, February 20 for the details. Orders ship on Tuesday the 21st.
Just a reminder to watch for frequent activity with the featured title category. There are lots of birthdays and other fun days to cover and we’re keeping busy celebrating as many of them as we can! Enjoy the music and the savings!
As our banner currently displays, if you don’t already have it, pick up our featured title we’re currently offering on special sale in celebration of Andrew Lockington’s birthday that occurred on January 31. The featured title is his richly evocative score for I’ll Follow You Down.

Coming ahead for this Tuesday the 24th is a really cool new CD release from Intrada that’ll provide you with two genuine American film score masterpieces. From these works of historical musical art, many a composer found influence. Just about all of them, in fact. Artwork, contents and sound samples will be posted Monday evening prior. Enjoy!
Here’s hoping that 2017 will improve on 2016. From what I’m reading, so far it isn’t off to such a peaceful start. I won’t hold my breath… but I will hope. Last year wrapped with a certain sadness. Instead of celebrating New Year’s Eve with parties and champagne, I traded good wishes with family members and played the new expansions of Jurassic Park and The Lost World to bring comfort. For me it usually comes down to music and movies. After everyone else went off to bed, I settled down with a Blu-ray and my customary diet coke. The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms. No particular reason why I chose an old Ray Harryhausen movie. Sometimes it’s really the dart thing. Throw one and just see where it lands. So the movie was full of monster action and enhanced by a David Buttolph score. Easy to digest.
Surely this year will bring many more musical treasures, both shiny new and old-but-newly-polished. We have some fabulous stuff in various stages of production here. There are also some must-see movies coming up. So I’ll keep my hopes up. And to everyone who might be reading, and to all those who are doing other things, I wish you all a Happy New Year!
