    In the John Wayne musical pieces these themes are from a title CD The Films of John Wayne, but I haven't been able to find anything on that in any catalogs. This is from the Utah Symphony Orchestra.

    Great Music from a great composer.

    You might go to composers of Duke movies, and find a greatest hits to get John Wayne compliation of songs or from studios. I've been looking myself for several years, but not lately.

    Cheers, Hondo

    Max Steiner composed the music for The Searchers. What a great musical score for that movie. I watched it the other day, and really enjoyed it very much. It was very appropriate, and made the mood for the movie great. I found out he composed the music for Operation Pacific and Trouble Along The Way, which I enjoyed as well. Any others that touched you in Duke movies?

    Cheers Hondo B)

    Mrs. Chester,

    Thank you for the information. I'm sure someone would ask, and I would have looked it up. I didn't know who it was, but you found out for me.


    OK, I checked IMDb, and will now answer my own question -

    Muzzy Marcellino dubbed the whistling for John Wayne!

    So now we ALL know!

    Thanks a million folks

    Cheers, Hondo B)

    Elmere Bernstien did so many great compositions for so many movies. I really am moved to the movie To Kill A Monkingbird. When I hear Bernstein's music in Duke's movies, I listen with great enjoyment. The Comancheros, True Grit, The Sons of Katie Elder, just to name a few of his compositions.

    I like Victor Young also. He did the music for The Quiet Man.

    You new ones, tell us some of your favorite movie music.

    Cheers, Hondo B)

    Music has a way of touching our emotions when we watch a moive. Some great composers have really made that special touch in Duke's movies. Victor Young has composed (8) eight movies, Roy Webb has (7) seven. Max Steiner did (3) three, Emil Newman did (3) three, Dimitri Tiomkin composed (6) six, just to name a few.


    I have a collection of music from Elmer Bernstien (composed 8) that has quite a selection from movies Duke starred in. I really liked the music from The Commancheros. The Sons from Katie Elder is also a good one. Maybe there is one that stands out to you.


    I have to say that Hondo from Emil Newman gives me the chills, everytime I hear that theme music.


    What is your favorite theme music? You might have to pull out those videos to watch and listen before responding.
