Red Buttons - R.I.P. - The Poseidon Adventure / Stagecoach / The Trouble With Angels soundtracks

This second memorial post is dedicated to comedian and actor, Red Buttons. He gave strong supporting performances in such films as 'Hatari', 'Five Weeks in a Balloon', 'The Longest Day', 'They Shoot Horses Don't They', and 'The Poseidon Adventure'. He starred in the spy spoof series, 'The Double Life of Henry Phyfe' in 1966 and the variety/comedy series, 'The Red Buttons Show' from 1952-1955, in which he started a national craze with 'The Ho Ho Song'. Here's side B of the 1953 novelty 45 RPM of that song and I've also included the theme from 'The Double Life of Henry Phyfe' by Vic Mizzy:

He won a Best Supporting Oscar for his second film, 'Sayonara' in which he played a Romeo-like figure opposite Miyoshi Umeki (who also won an Oscar). And if I ever finish it, he makes an appearance on 'Oscar Winners Sing Just For You, Volume 2'. Doesn't quite measure up to the honor of winning an Oscar, but what can I say?

Here is the score to The Poseidon Adventure by John Williams. If you squint, you can see Red on the front cover on the far left, right above Ernest Borgnine.

Here are the soundtracks to the films, 'Stagecoach' and 'The Trouble With Angels' both with scores by Jerry Goldsmith. Red was only in 'Stagecoach' (as far as I remember) which was a 1966 remake of the John Wayne movie (which, as almost always seems the case, wasn't as good as the original). 'The Trouble With Angels' starred Rosalind Russell and Hayley Mills in a story about mischievous girls and nuns (well, only the girls were mischievous). Again, not the best movie in the world but still kind of fun.

Track List:

01 - Stagecoach (1966) - Main Title Theme From 'Stagecoach'
02 - Stagecoach (1966) - First Born And Escape Route
03 - Stagecoach (1966) - Aftermath

Normally, I would've put up the score to 'Hatari' by Henry Mancini which I like better than the score to Stagecoach, but Ibiza (and I think others) have already shared this, so I didn't bother. I was also thinking about putting up the soundtrack to 'Harlow', but since that was Neal Hefti, I'm sure somebody else has already put that up somewhere too. I may still put that up someday though. I can't resist listening to the track 'Girl Talk' again!

WOW! I never thought I'd get to hear this release. It just keeps getting more and more expensive on ebay. Thanks for sharing it.
Hi Pooter!

Thanks for saying that! I haven't checked out how much these are going for lately, but I put them up because it seemed to me they were both long out of print. I'm not sure if you were talking about Poseidon Adventure or Stagecoach, but either way, I'm happy to share it with people!

Also, people should go check out Pooter's blog, 'The Soundtracks That Time Forgot'.
