Monstrous Movie Music: Rocketship X-M - Ferde Grofe

Rocketship X-M [1950]
Music by: Ferde Grofe 

The great American composer Ferde Grofe was best known for his colorful orchestral concert works like “Grand Canyon Suite” and “Mississippi Suite,” but on rare occasion he did some work in the movies, and his landmark score for the 1950 science fiction film Rocketship X-M [MMM-1965] is one of his major accomplishments. The score was the first fifties science fiction film to use the Theremin, an electronic instrument that helped define the sound of space that decade.
