My favorite composer on the DVD I own would be Bernard Herrman, The upcoming DVD release "The Day the Earth Stood Still" and "Journey to the Center of the Earth" are but two of his masterpieces you will hear when you rent of buy either of the above DVD releases. I also have Bernard in the stirring "7th Voyage of Sinbad", "Valley of the Gwangi", "Farenheit 451" and "Gullivers Travels". Only when they release "The Day The Earth Stood Still" I won't be listening to the Monaural soundtrack. Silva Screen Records of NYC, NY reissued the TDTESS in remastered Dolby Surround Disc #112660 "Great Film Music of Bernard Herrman" who lead The National Philharmonic Orchestra of London, England total running time 72M04S. Also in a different Disc are "Pshycho", "Marnie", "North by Northwest", Vertigo, and The Trouble with Harry" Under The Great Hitchcock Thrillers running time 36M14S. I have over 487 Remastered in Dolby Surround Classics of the 1930 through 2000 for the compact disc software I own that I play when I know that the DVD disc's music is about to be heard. For proof or your own listening pleasure the name is Silva Screen Records of monaural DVD discs that you own and would like to hear in Dolby Surround this is your ticket a audiophiles dream come true. I have 2 Pioneeer F-1007 300 discs one dedicated to soundtracks, plus 187 discs of the same in the other F-10007 player ready to go when I insert my DVD I insert my CD of beautiful Dolby Surround. I feel privaleged over the people of 1951 who 'had' to listen to a monaural soundtrack and those of you who have not bought and owned the pleasure of a audiophile while viewing the DVD of your choice. DVD Widescreen and CD Re-mastered with the same instruments, only in Dolby Surround from philharmonic orchesrtra like the City of Prague by conducters like Nic Raines and Paul Bateman. The two when played are like a seemless view with music the Director would want you to hear. You have yet to learn what all the things I have bought with the pleasure of hearing the music whenever the disc is played. The main reason I have purchased over 1291 movies one is in the mail, is to hear the mastered sound tracks that make the movie. Laura 1944 is one of the classics, I also have both movie and the music of David Raksin on CD of this 'chic' movie of 1944. Do any of you share my passion of watching the DVD movie, but listening to the music of the great masters on Compact Disc, such a treat for the ear of one who apreciates the finest music money can buy, along with a $28,402 plus DVD disc collection. I won't even mention the amount spent over the years, dreams do not always come cheap but we audiophiles and videophiles to have the software to get the most beautiful picture and music for our dedicated minds.
