Worthy Western Film Soundtrack
Alamo_guy | 11/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jerry Goldsmith demonstrates his great versatility once again in this very good soundtrack. He mixes traditional Western film scoring with some modern influences into the genre and the result is very pleasing. It is good to see that this soundtrack was once again made available.
Goldsmith "Guns" For It
Erik North | San Gabriel, CA USA | 09/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although it wasn't completely accurate to the facts of the Tombstone feud between Wyatt Earp and Ike Clanton, the 1967 John Sturges-directed HOUR OF THE GUN remains a very good Western. A good deal of the credit must go to the late, great Jerry Goldsmtih, whose score here is (surprisingly) one of the rare ones he has done inside the Western.

Every bit as dark and brooding as the film itself, though there are lighter, jaunty moments of Americana, with occasional harmonica and banjo, Goldsmith's music, like any great Western score, vividly depicts the wide open spaces of the West, and gives a keen insight into the characters of Earp, Clanton, and Doc Holliday. As part of the film is set in northern Mexico, there's also the use of Mexican castanets and Latin guitar as well for some additional flavor.

Although this is a very short recording (just under 32 minutes in length), HOUR OF THE GUN is nevertheless highly recommended for fans of Western film scores in general, and for Goldsmith aficionados in particular."
