Original Motion Picture Score

Music Composed and Conducted by Bruce Broughton

One of Bruce Broughton’s very best and most-loved scores, The Boy Who Could Fly is beautiful, soaring film music magic! This is also the music that has greeted theatergoers before every screen at Disney’s El Capitan Theater in Hollywood.

The decision is simple here. If you love film music and don’t have this score, you need it. This recording, featuring Bruce Broughton himself conducting the Sinfonia of London, has been remastered to bring out its best qualities.

Lucy Deakins, Jay Underwood, Fred Savage (TV's The Wonder Years) and Bonnie Bedelia (Presumed Innocent, Die Hard) star in a heartwarming story about the special friendship between two teenagers struggling to adjust to life after each suffers a great loss. A splendid supporting cast -- including Jason Priestley (Beverly Hills, 90210), Emmy-winner Colleen Dewhurst (Murphy Brown), Fred Gwynne (The Munsters, My Cousin Vinny) and Academy Award-winner Louise Fletcher (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) -- rounds out this story of belief in the impossible and in the magical.

CDs expected to begin shipping the week of Nov. 5.

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Music Composed and Conducted by John Scott

This classic John Scott score from 1987 returns in the Varèse Encore series. The score features a justly famous main theme which is unquestionably one of Scott’s best. The unusual thing here though is that its fame is largely due to it's appearance in another movie entirely. The resolution and embrace between John and Holly McClane at the end of Die Hard … that’s John Scott’s Man On Fire. Sweeping and lush. Other parts of the score – much more intense. Remastered and available for the first time in over two decades !

Set in Italy, a wealthy U.S. family hires a bodyguard to protect Sam (Jade Malle), their 12 year old girl from being kidnapped for ransom. The bodyguard is John Creasy (Scott Glenn), a burned-out and mentally broken ex-CIA agent, who is haunted by images of his past. Although Creasy is not interested in being a bodyguard, especially to a twelve year old, he reluctantly accepts the assignment after persuasion from his friend David (Joe Pesci). At first, Creasy barely tolerates Sam and her annoying questions about his past life and personal experiences. However, as he begins to genuinely care for Sam, his defenses drop, and he opens up to her. Sparked by her parents frequent absences, Creasy quickly becomes a friend and father figure to her. He offers her advice, guidance and help with her track and field running. Creasy's love for Sam begins to ease his troubled conscience.

When Creasy is car-jacked and Sam is kidnapped his new life is destroyed. Despite the serious injuries sustained during the kidnapping, Creasy vows Sam's safe return, and vengeance on her kidnappers. By systematically hunting down the individuals involved Creasy slowly gets closer and closer to finding Sam.

Man On Fire klingt richtig gut. Das Chariots-of-Fire-Zitat in Titel 4 ist ja goldig. ^^

Insgesamt mir dann allerdings doch zu rührselig ... :)

Das ist nicht Schmalz, das ist Schmelz ;)

Ich gebe noch etwas Oktoberbowle aus. Ein Schlöckchen ist noch da. :) Beide CDs sind sehr empfehlenswert. Das Re-recording von Boy Who Could Fly ist wesentlich hörenswerter als der Original-Score, der mal von Percepto kam (der ist 30 Minuten länger, dafür aber auch langweiliger). Ah, Klick, Klick, Klick, Server im Nebenraum läuft an, läuft.....
