Well, here’s one that is probably not on very many lists of scores that people have been dying for. In fact, it’s probably a score that not many people have ever heard … or even heard of, for that matter! But isn’t that part of what makes film music so much fun? The truly great composers were almost all so prolific that even a composer’s most dedicated fans will not have heard everything.

In this case we have a 1952 score by Franz Waxman … so you know it has to be great! And great it is!

Lure of The Wilderness was directed by Jean Negulesco (Humoresque, Johnny Belinda, Three Coins In The Fountain, Boy On A Dolphin) and starred Walter Brennan, Jean Peters and Jeffrey Hunter in a story of a young girl and her father, who is unjustly accused of murder. They seek refuge in a Georgia swamp until they are befriended by a trapper who penetrates the swamp in search of his dog.

The score is beautiful, exotic, lilting, ominous and percussive. Waxman was always musically adventurous and he most certainly held nothing back here.

It will be a musical discovery for almost everyone … as though Waxman had recorded it just a few months ago! Let’s just pretend that the film opens next Friday! New from 20th Century-Fox!
