From the Manufacturer

Track Listing Legend:
*Consists of "Ann Rutledge Theme" by Alfred Newman (from Young Mr. Lincoln)
**Includes "Ann Rutledge Theme" by Alfred Newman

Cyril Mockridge provided the score to The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and a great score it is, filled with original themes as well as some source music that's beautifully arranged into the fabric of the score. Ford asked for a nod to Alfred Newman's "Ann Rutledge Theme" from Young Mr. Lincoln, because he felt it evoked lost love. It's a short score, but one cannot imagine the film without it.

For Donovan's Reef, Mockridge mostly uses traditional Hawaiian music for his themes, but it all works perfectly in the film, giving it an authentic Hawaiian flavor and keeping the frolicsome nature of the film moving right along. There are also some very lovely themes as the score goes along, and it's just a delightful pastiche for a delightful pastiche of a film.

This is the world premiere release for both The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and Donovan's Reef, all taken from various elements in the Paramount vaults. Some of The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance is in stereo, some in mono. All of Donovan's Reef is in stereo. So, here are two wonderful world-premiere scores by Cyril Mockridge. As the Duke would say in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance—listen up, Pilgrim.

This release is limited to 1000 copies only.
