CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS – THE FRANZ WAXMAN COLLECTION
Composed and Conducted by FRANZ WAXMAN
INTRADA Special Collection 390


After thirteen years in development, Intrada and Warner Bros. bring forth a four-CD set featuring 11 films scored by Franz Waxman from the studio vaults of Allied Artists., MGM and RKO. With over 243 minutes of music featured and a comprehensive 40-page booklet that walks the listener through each film and score, this release showcases Waxman's brilliance and diversity in the golden age of Hollywood film scoring. Franz Waxman was a champion of quality in both the craft and the art of film music. Included on this set are scores from:

Captains Courageous (1943)
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941)
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1939)
A Christmas Carol (1938)
Woman of the Year (1942)
Count Your Blessings (1959) (Stereo)
Love on the Run (1936)
Fury (1936)
Suspicion (1941)
The Devil-Doll (1936)
King of the Roaring '20's


The audio quality of the source material varies, depending on factors that include use and storage conditions. Most of the music was transferred from 78-rpm mono acetate reference discs made during the recording sessions, with a few sequences drawn from music scoring stems. A crown jewel in the collection, the 1959 score for Count Your Blessings appears in dynamic stereo from the original three-channel masters and is a rich and dramatic highlight of the set. All surviving cues from each film are included. Several scores are near-complete or feature most of the major highlights, while others survive in more truncated fashion. Rest assured, everything that could be transferred is here. In the case of the titular Captains Courageous, not only does the entire score survive in excellent sound but several exciting sequences not used in the finished production are present as well.

Lukas Kendall and Neil S. Bulk spearheaded this project, with the generous oversight of the composer's son, John W. Waxman.
