It's more than forty years ago that I saw the film. Now I hesitate as in my previous message I don't see the real actors...?
Here some new youtube with the real actors...



Regards, Paul.

This is from a TV series from the mid 70s about Australian bushranger Ben Hall;



opening and closing credits ( Temp, since you like the Witchfinder General theme, I'm sure you'll like the closing credits of this one which start around the 2:49 mark)

Triceratops,

it isn't exactly a film soundtrack but I couldn't resist to present one of my favourites:
"The African Queen" I give the last episode but you can see the whole film too...

http://watch32.com/movies-online/the-african-queen-286652/episode-7.html

To come back to film music...

All from 1951.
At school I was the best in reading, but in 1951 just able to read the subtitles (in Belgium always the original film with French and Dutch subtitles...) I could hardly read the subtitles in Dutch before they moved away...









And "The Great Caruso" Mario Lanza in 1951.








An interesting piece of music I found this evening too:
From "Requiem for a dream":






Kind regards from your friend, Paul.

And there was always Davy Crockett who "killed him a bear when he was only three"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAVN_n0PljQ (funny I had remembered it as "killed hisself a bear".  I don't know how true the Disney film was to the real Davy Crockett (probably not very).  I can remember the cartoon character Baby Crockett and arguing with some friends as to whether he was "King of the Family" or "King of the Jamily" - we hadn't done "joined up" writing at that stage in our lives and some thought the "f" looked like a "j".  I see Paul R, refers to "Show Boat".  Edna Ferber (the author of "Show Boat") seems to have fallen out of fashion, but in my view it was quite brave of her to include a mixed-race character (Julie) in the source novel of "Show Boat".  I saw the 1960 version of "Cimarron" (based on another of Ms Ferber's books) with Mum and my little brother and quite liked it though probably much of the subtlety went over my head at that age.  (Mum wasn't very pleased about the lynching scene as my brother was only 6 at the time).

I was so disappointed when I found out his name was "Colonel Custer" and not "Colonel Custard" - well there was a children's character (not real; it was somebody dressing up) called "Mr Pastry" when I was a kid.

I watched this at the weekend. Eight people meet up in a store during a blizzard, but which of them, if any, are telling the truth. Expect the usual violence and bad language inherent in a Tarentino film. At 2 hours 40 minutes it is quite a long film.
The closing titles are run to this song, first time I've heard this in about 50 years;

Instrumental chart hit from 1963, the original is Concerto Disperato, known in the UK as The Legion's Last Patrol ( I have no recollection of the film at all )

Yes Triceratops, nice theme, some say it has resemblings with "Il Silentio".
And I don't remember the film either...as I saw nearly all the films of the Sixties...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commando_(1962_film)
And I see now that also Belgium was involved in the coproduction...
And you see no real Holywood stuff, nor a UK film. It is perhaps therefore that I didn't see it in Ostend Belgium in the Sixties...
Found also this:

The recently-deceased and much lamented Jean "Toots" Thielemans was the soloist on the theme music for "Midnight Cowboy"

It wasn't until I heard his obituary on "Last Word" that I realised that the Belgian monarchy still ennobled people.

Gil, if I quite understand it they do it still in the UK too?

I learned the first ime about the recent ennoblement when I read "The Kingdom in the Sun" from the Viscount of Norwich about Sicily. By doing research about the author as I always do I learned that his father Duff Cooper received the ennoblement only in 1952...

Kind regards from your friend Paul.

Yes, Paul. not so many hereditary titles handed out these days, but there over 800 mostly life peers entitled to sit in the House of Lords, and pass judgement on laws.

Here's an opening title theme for you all :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thDrcNmbyDw

Nino Rosso wrote both tunes, Paul.
