Dimitri Tiomkin’s score for The Unforgiven has been issued on compact disc by Kritzerland. John Huston directed this classic Western, which starred Burt Lancaster, Audrey Hepburn, Audie Murphy, Lillian Gish, and Charles Bickford. The film was released by United Artists in 1960. The CD contains 14 tracks brimming with galloping rhythms, lush romanticism, and general joie d’vivre. Listen to sample tracks and order here.
The Unforgiven was previously released on a United Artists LP in 1960 and as part of a limited-edition Film Score Monthly box set, The Unforgiven: Classic Western Scores From United Artists, in 2007. The score was remastered for this CD release produced by Bruce Kimmel. Kimmel’s Kritzerland Records specializes in hard-to-find classics, reissues, and new releases. The limited edition CD also contains tracks from Bronislau Kaper’s score for The Way West.
