INTRADA Announces Trevor Jones' NATE AND HAYES

Trevor Jones' NATE AND HAYES

NATE AND HAYES
Music Composed by TREVOR JONES
INTRADA ISC 417

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.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

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 the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
