Intrada: Cahill: US Marshal - Elmer Bernstein

Cahill: US Marshal [1973-2013]
Music by: Elmer Bernstein

Released By: INTRADA

Intrada Special Collection Volume 229

Great release for Elmer Bernstein fans! Intrada proudly offers world premiere release of Bernstein's powerful score for iconic John Wayne western from 1973, directed by veteran Andrew V. McLaglen, also featuring George Kennedy, Gary Grimes. Bernstein writes larger-than-life main theme for Wayne's U.S. marshal figure, then surrounds with action music as Cahill tracks down, does battle with trio of bank robbers. Lengthy initial robbery sequence ("Killers") is an action music highlight, but equal in excitement is climactic showdown ("Various Troubles"). Night time scene in "Cemetery" allows composer to display gifts for quiet child-like musical gestures, atmospheric ideas. To present complete score, courtesy Warner Bros., Intrada was given access to entire scoring session masters, recorded on 2" 16-channel tape, one of earliest scores recorded in then state-of-the-art multi-track format.

5/5 John Wayne and Elmer Bernstein, period!
