I've always wanted the score to be released in some form. John Williams sampled some of it for "Return of the Jedi"

I’ve yet to see the film, but I agree with Battlebeast that it seems odd that Williams would quote some of this score in Return of the Jedi (I do recall a Shofar call from Elmer Bernstein’s Ten Commandments score being heard near the end of the film). Do you know where in that film Williams quotes Friedrich Hollaender’s score for Talk of the Town?

I hope somebody releases this movie and Ladies in Retirement on Blu-ray, a couple of favorite Sony classics of mine :)

I think it's the Luke and Leia scene when he tells her she's his sister. Perhaps it appears in a few scenes here and there.
