By Request - Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982) (Miklos Rozsa)

JazzHollister (you know, from his excellent blog, JazzNotes - go there and get great stuff!) requested something from this film. I thought I might have it, but I couldn't remember until I checked so I put it up at the Requests post. Well, I could swear I listened to it before and I knew I wasn't crazy, so here it is!

It was really lucky that when it came time to do this Steve Martin spoof of film noir films, they could actually get a composer who had done the original film noirs and was still composing and still vital. This isn't a spoof score though, but would work in any classic film noir.

It's Miklos Rozsa and that's all you need to say, as far as I'm concerned. Well, this one's for you Jazz (you deserve it)! I hope you (and everyone else) enjoys it!

This is without a doubt the best thing ever! I so owe you!
Hi Jazz!

I'm only too glad to make it available and I'm so glad you get this nice souvenir from the movie! :))
You have such a fantastic blog. I don't even know how to thank you and if it'd be enough to say so!

Such great sharing and generosity. I wonder if this is the right way to make requests but while the link was there, it's dead for Quiller Memorandum (John Barry).

I also wonder if you may be able to post these?

Rich and Famous (Georges Delerue)
3:10 To Yuma (George Duning)
Shane (the film with Alan Ladd) by Victor Young?

Many thanks in advance.
