November is Bogart Month at DPTV and WRCJ.  Last week we played some of Max Steiner’s music from “The Big Sleep” (1946), which was broadcast this past Friday on the WTVS Friday Film Festival.  This week on Film Classics we’re doing an entire show of selections from Bogart films, including “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre,” “Key Largo,” “Sahara,” “The Caine Mutiny” (which WTVS will broadcast this coming Friday November 14th) and of course, “Casablanca.”

Music by Dmitri Shostakovich for a 1929 Soviet silent film epic set during the era of the Paris Commune, written for a live pit orchestra to play while the movie was being shown, back in the days before soundtracks were recorded.  We’ll be featuring a 2011 recording of the score, featuring the Basel Sinfonietta from Switzerland conducted by Mark Fitz-Gerald.  And as Bogart Month continues on DPTV and WRCJ, this week we’ll also hear a little bit from “The Maltese Falcon” (1941) by Adolph Deutsch, the movie that will be broadcast on the Friday Film Festival on November 21st.

Music from “Prince Valiant” (1954) by Franz Waxman, inspired by the celebrated comic strip created by Hal Foster, and starring Robert Wagner, Janet Leigh and James Mason.  And also, a Waxman score for a movie that starred Humphrey Bogart and Barbara Stanwyck:  “The Two Mrs. Carrolls”, from 1947.

Robert Mitchum wasn’t exclusively identified with Westerns, but he made some good ones.  Tonight, musical selections from “Pursued” (1947) by Max Steiner—“The Wonderful Country” (1959) by Alex North—and “Home From the Hill” (1960) by Bronislau Kaper.  Also, some music from “Virginia City”—a 1940 Western that starred Errol Flynn, and featured Humphrey Bogart as a Mexican bandit!
