633 Squadron (1964)/Submarine X-1 (1969)
Please note that titles in the CD format are not movies and are audio soundtracks only.
633 Squadron is one of Ron Goodwin's finest war scores, with a magnificent "chattering brass" theme that captures the exultation of flight. (Goodwin ingeniously composed the theme to reflect the "633" of the title, with alternating bars of six and three beats.) Goodwin's score is full of action and triumph, as well as a love theme for the film's romantic subplot. Submarine X-1 is a lesser-known production. Goodwin also provides a soaring, nautical British anthem amongst gentler moments, and his octatonic "underwater" colors will thrill fans of his distinctive adventure writing.
