INTRADA Announces Arthur B. Rubinstein's ANOTHER STAKEOUT

Music Composed and Conducted by ARTHUR B. RUBINSTEIN

In honor of composer Arthur B. Rubinstein who passed away earlier this year, Intrada is proud to present his colorful, spirited score to the 1993 sequel, Another Stakeout starring Richard Dreyfuss, Emilio Estevez and Rosie O'Donnell. In the first film, Stakeout, Chris Lecce (Dreyfuss) and Bill Reimers (Estevez) pair as comically quarrelsome Seattle detectives who stake out the ex-girlfriend of an escaped con, only for Lecce to fall head-over-heels in love with the woman they are surveilling. Six years later, Another Stakeout heats up with a literal bang as hit man Tony Castellano (Miguel Ferrer) attempts to blow up Lu Delano (Cathy Moriarty), the star witness against a Mafia boss. When Delano subsequently vanishes, zealous A.D.A. Gina Garrett (O’Donnell) recruits Lecce and Reimers to stake out the lake district where Delano is believed to be hiding.

Rubinstein’s score for Another Stakeout is distinguished from its predecessor in several ways, one of which is scope. As a budget eighties actioner, the original movie had a synth-heavy score with a pronounced pop vibe. The sequel also employs synth and pop elements, but with a nearly ninety-member orchestra at the composer’s disposal. The difference is immediately apparent in the main title, with its spellbinding arpeggios and sumptuous dark strings. The film relies on its own catalogue of motifs. First is the suspenseful theme introduced in the main title. Second is a muscular action theme, related to the motif for the actual stakeout. Finally, there is a heartstring-tugging theme for Lecce and Maria that spotlights the colors of guitar and flute. Though not heard frequently—it appears about as often as Maria herself—this is one of Rubinstein’s loveliest melodies.

Rubinstein scored the opening portion in a serious vein, then fashioned his score to match the amiable dynamics of the two principal stars. The soundtrack for Another Stakeout plays as two distinct scores. Common thematic ideas and harmonic devices are shared in both styles of writing and the result is an unusually strong cohesiveness within a widely diverse hour of music. Intrada prepared this premiere release from the 2″ 24-track masters recorded over four days in late June 1993 by veteran John Richards at Todd-AO Studios with the composer conducting.

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

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. Read the full article here.
