Thread Name: Important Movie Soundtracks?
Subject: RE: Important Movie Soundtracks?
Movie soundtracks??? I think there alot of Film Noire "B" folms from the 40's and 50's that are nothing without the jazz score they had. Everyone remembers Unchained Melody but who remembers the film , "Unchained", not "Ghost".

"The Seahawks", "Captain Blood", and I think "The Charge of the Light Brigade" had Korngold soundtracks and those films were even more exciting because of the music.

No amount of great music or beautiful scenery or even Nastsia Kinsky could save "Tess" from being a major yawner. "Elvira Madigan" had beautiful music as I recall.

"Silverado" had great music. Most of the JohnWayne westerns and The Cavilry Trilogy, "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon", "Fort Apache", and "Rio Grande" had exceptional sound tracks. "The Quiet Man" had a near perfect musical score.

Its ashame that "Amadeus" had such poor musical inspiration :-)
