I don't mind the song on the titles of The Man From Laramie, it's sung very slow & mellow & suits the movie, & who listens to the words anyway. I don't think there were as many songs in the sixties as there were in the fifties (Bond films aside), just an impression. I think we get a lot more songs now, but on the end roller this time, well you have to have something playing for those 6-8 minutes.

One of the title songs that does irritate me is RIVER OF NO RETURN, but I like BUS STOP's title song

The theme song from River of No Return is very very cheesy ... just like the movie.

And I love them both!

Go to Screen Archives. They sell it for the recommended price.

I find the title song of River of No Return rather poignant actually, especially Marilyn's rendition.

I think the key differentiator for me is whether it's an actual song versus a cheesy, twangy 60's style "ballad". Most of the 1950s movies fortunately avoid having the latter.

3:10 To Yuma and Gunfight At The OK Corral are great movie songs.  Frankie Laine is the Man.

 

Laine did Man Without a Star, too, right?  For me, that's a tie, or maybe even a slight preference for Man Without a Star.  (I know we both have the German Blu.)

Yes, Frankie did the title tune to Man Without A Star and also another 1955 Western, Strange Lady in Town.

Let's not forget another film released very recently on Blu-ray Disc - Separate Tables.

 

Perhaps not the worst title song ever, but bloody hell, it must be close.

This talk about the opening songs makes me realize that it's kind of remarkable that the James Bond series was able to keep it alive for itself after the trend has basically gone away

The Bond adventures, along with the Doris Day comedies are exactly the type of film where this type of opening song is appropriate:  movies that are pure fun with no pretense of any deep thought.  Unlike, say, SEPARATE TABLES.  That the concept works in HIGH NOON is probably due to the fact that it was still fresh in 1952.  And it's a great song.

One of my favorite opening songs (with narration by William Conrad) was for Chisum:

 

Chisum, John Chisum.  Weary.  Saddle-worn.  Chisum, John Chisum.  Can you still keep goin’ on?  They’re bettin’ you can’t make it, but you bet your life they’re wrong.  So keep ridin’ towards the Pecos, to find where you belong.” 


Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself "slightly" killed.

Just got this one. Wonderful film. In fact, it's now in my top 5 of Westerns from the 1950s. And this is a terrific 4k restoration that makes it look like opening night in 1955. Stereo too! Anyway, if anyone's on the fence about whether this one is worth $30, the answer is every penny and more imho.
