INTRADA Announces Jerry Goldsmith's THE MUMMY

THE MUMMY
Music Composed and Conducted by JERRY GOLDSMITH
INTRADA ISC 402

Intrada's latest release is from Universal Studios' thrilling 1999 adventure The Mummy. Composer Jerry Goldsmith wrote and recorded nearly 100 minutes of music with nods to his beloved action-and-suspense vernacular of the late ’70s and early ’80s, an era he seldom looked back upon by 1999. By the '90s, Goldsmith was usually rooting his rhythmic ideas in heavy doses of electronics. Here, however, Goldsmith revisited a musical language he had largely moved away from, using real percussion and low brass and strings to deliver almost all the rhythms. And to emphasize the Egyptian locale, Goldsmith employed the exotic color of a bouzouki, a mandolin-like, Greek instrument to provide regional color. In the end, The Mummy was one of the biggest box-office successes in Jerry Goldsmith’s career.

At the time of the film's release, Jerry Goldsmith and engineer Bruce Botnick selected 57 minutes of highlights for the album, electing not to use anything from the middle of the film, eschewing all of reels 8, 9, 10 and most of reel 11. As a result, several sensational cues were not included on that Decca album, including some of the most exciting and dramatic sequences in the score. For Intrada’s complete score presentation plus alternates, Botnick has prepared brand-new digital two-track mixes using the 48-track session masters. For the complete Decca album presentation, Intrada used the digital two-track album master. All source material was housed in the vaults of Universal Pictures in pristine condition and has been used in the preparation of this release with their kind permission.

Brendan Fraser, playing French Foreign Legion officer and adventurer Rick O’Connell, headed a large cast that included Rachel Weisz as librarian and budding Egyptologist Evelyn Carnahan; John Hannah as her less-principled brother, who’s into tomb raiding for the money; Arnold Vosloo as Imhotep, an Egyptian high priest doomed to eternal life after Pharaoh Seti I (Aharon IpalĂ©) discovers the priest’s affair with his wife, Anck Su Namun (Patricia Velasquez); Kevin J. O’Connor as nefarious thief Beni Gabor; and Oded Fehr as Ardeth Bay, leader of a sect sworn to keep the evil of Imhotep from the world. O’Connell, an Indiana Jones-like, adventurer-archaeologist archetype and Carnahan and her ne’er-do-well brother, Jonathan accidentally resurrect the mummified Egyptian high priest Imhotep and unleash all kinds of ancient evil

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
