  3. Mystery Score Clip 104



    No clues at this time. I don't have notes handy for what it was and no headphones to listen to it.

  4. In an earlier clip set (#65), I had scoring from the first six seasons of "Hunter" (Mike Post & Pete Carpenter). As a point of interest, I am providing to suites of scoring from the seventh (final) season, which was scored by Walter Murphy:

  5. Clues for #104:


    It's from a short-lived TV series starring a then famous television actor who starred in a famous TV series. I've included the opening credits theme in the suite (the theme is not by the episode composer). The score is by a composer featured in a previous Mystery Score Clip.

    He's written for a number of famous, well known, and generally known TV series.

  6. I'll say, what I always say in such cases: Gerrold Immel. The theme sounds like early John Williams.

  7. Jerrold Immel, and nope. The theme is not by Williams, though there is no need to guess the theme (it is by a massively prolific television composer).

  8. Reveal.



    The series was called "Blacke's Magic" and starred Harry Morgan of "M*A*S*H" fame (and some other guy; a father and son magic duo who solve mysteries, well, fall into mysteries they end up solving).

    The score for this episode was by David Bell. The series theme was by Richard Markowitz, who apparently never slept based on his body of work.


    It wasn't a bad show, it just wasn't anything great.

    We're going back a number of decades to a more fun time in scoring where you could get away with something like this. You're impression might be a known big composer like Dave Grusin, but you are wrong (this is zero slight on the talent of the composer who did this).

    The composer is almost exclusively known for his work on a famous TV series and he's still alive.

  10. Reveal.



    This was from a mediocre 1976 movie called "Moving Violation" where two teens in love run from a police officer for some reason, and during the thing the officer gets killed (not by them) and they spend most of the movie on the run. It's actually got a good scene or two, but it's certainly not worth watching for those.

    The score is by Don Peake and it has not been released.

    Note: I had to skip #106 since it was over fifteen minutes and the load was rejected. I don't have the means to fix this by breaking it up into two videos, so I shall have to skip it until some other unknown time.



    This time I feature another unreleased score, from a famous foreign composer who is still with us today. Actually, I think one or two cues were on a compilation, but I don't wish to go look it up.


    If you like strings, light romance and wistful music, this is for you.

    This was from a 1970's film called "Breezy".


    Some older guy gives a young teenage hippie girl a ride, she falls in love with him, they do it, they have a ... this movie sucked. It's a waste of time.


    The score is by Michel Legrand.

    This is from an older film, going back a number of decades. The score is unreleased.

    More details to be added anther day.

  14. Since I forgot to give clues, I'll just go straight to the reveal.



    The cue was from a 1951 film called "The People Against O'Hara". It was scored by Carmen Dragon. The score remains unreleased. In fact, to date, only one of Dragon's scores has been released.

  15. Mystery Score Clip 109


    From a few decades ago, the score is to a police drama that spawned a series of films about the same character (though I think he was re-named after this).

    The score is by a composer who is still with us and has experience scoring police drama. It is unreleased.

    There are no claims to fame per se in his body of work, but one of his unreleased scores is some what often asked for in threads at FSM.

    If you like older action and dramatic scoring with percussion, piano, trumpet, this is for you.


    I have to break it up into two suites since it was over fifteen minutes:

    Part 1:

    This is from a 1973 TV movie called "Brock's Last Case" (starring Richard Widmark).

    Unfortunately, I confused films. This did not spawn a TV series, however, Richard Widmark went on to play a police officer again in a series of TV movies under the name of "Madigan".


    The score is by Charles Gross.

    I'm re-visiting a previous entry to give more music.

    The composer is still with us. Worked on some famous TV series. Has a film score coming up.

    On a personal note, this contains what has become one of my favorite action/adventure cues; it's a little disjointed because I had to edit out dialogue and some FX.


    Enjoy.

  18. Reveal. Though I certainly didn't expect anybody to guess at all, so no shock here.


    These are selectiions from Gerald Fried's efforts to the TV series "The Man Who Never Was".

    Previously in another clip entry, I had selections from the [second] pilot score by Frank Cordell.

    This is the final one until a day comes where I have access to a computer where I can make more, but sadly that is not the case now. Fuck you, Windows 10.


    The late composer is one of the most famous composers to every work in film and television. However, this is from neither.
