INTRADA Announces Trevor Jones' NATE AND HAYES

Trevor Jones' NATE AND HAYES

Music Composed by TREVOR JONES

Intrada presents an absolute gem this week, a dramatically expanded edition of Trevor Jones’ magnificent, sweeping score for for the 1983 Paramount film Nate and Hayes. Throughout film history, there has been a wealth of great and legendary film scores for swashbucklers, pirate adventures and other dramas set upon the sea, and Nate and Hayes has a solid place among them. The well-produced, previous issue necessitated a heavily truncated 40-minute program, presenting only half the score. This new Intrada 2-CD presentation offers all the music Jones recorded in London. Since the score’s running time is just short of 80 minutes (not including alternates and additional music from the sessions), this presentation features the full film score on CD 1 and presents all the extra material on a second, shorter “bonus” CD.  Jones’ score for Nate and Hayes is an intoxicating blend of adventure, romance and skullduggery. Painted on a vast canvas it is held together structurally by a number of recurring themes subtly varied by the composer throughout the film. For those who admire his score to The Dark Crystal, Nate and Hayes scored just one year later shares many of the same sensibilities of the earlier score, making them excellent companions.

In the film, Captain Bully Hayes (Tommy Lee Jones) is illegally selling arms to South Pacific islanders when the deal goes bad and he and his men must fight off a tribe of female warriors. Hayes escapes, but falls into the hands of his erstwhile friend—but now archenemy— Ben Pease (Max Phipps). Awaiting execution in a Spanish prison, Hayes tells his story to an intrepid reporter, starting with Hayes transporting a spunky English girl, Sophie (Jenny Seagrove) and Nate Williamson (Michael O’Keefe), to a remote island where they are to be married by Nate’s missionary uncle. Pease and his crew interrupt the ceremony, murdering the uncle, kidnapping Sophie and carrying the natives off to slavery.  Nate and Hayes (both of whom are now in love with Sophie) arrive in the nick of time and rescue her.

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  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
