SOUNDTRACK NEWS: INTRADA Announces Jerry Goldsmith's THE LONELY GUY

INTRADA Announces Jerry Goldsmith's THE LONELY GUY

THE LONELY GUY
Music by JERRY GOLDSMITH
INTRADA ISC 416

For the 1984 Universal Studios film The Lonely Guy, composer Jerry Goldsmith composed a lighthearted score, dominated by a sweet love theme. The theme is first featured over the film's opening credits in the form of a vocal ("Love Comes Without Warning) performed by America — a melody that begins with a melancholy, seven-note phrase and variations before turning into a rhythmic, pop-flavored song. Goldsmith wrote a number of treatments of this theme for keyboard and solo piano, giving the score a unified feel that centers around Steve Martin’s character. As is evident from the numerous alternates on this CD, the film was a challenging, perhaps even grueling assignment, with the composer forced to record numerous approaches to several cues, often making changes and revisions on the recording stage during sessions.

Previously released only on an MCA LP back at the time of the film's release, it was a mini-LP, featuring four vocals and two of Goldsmith's score cuts. With the generous cooperation of Universal Music Group and Universal Studios, Intrada accessed all of the stereo music elements from 1/4″, 1/2″ and 2″ 24-track elements to put a comprehensive album together featuring Goldsmith's charming, wistful, and playful score. It's infectious and good-natured, and perhaps the last Jerry Goldsmith LP to find its way onto CD.

The Lonely Guy was based on The Lonely Guy’s Book of Life, a non-fiction book by Bruce Jay Friedman. The late Neil Simon spun off a screenplay loosely based on Friedman’s ideas, following lonely guy Larry Hubbard (Steve Martin) in New York City, where “Lonely Guy” is an established class of persons and where Hubbard commiserates with other Lonely Guys such as milquetoast Warren Evans (Charles Grodin). He also endures excruciating bad fortune with women such as his ex-girlfriend Danielle (Robin Douglas) and Iris (Judith Ivey), ex-wife of another Lonely Guy—who apparently hasn’t had sex despite six previous marriages.

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.
