Film Music Friday - May 13, 2022 (The Music of Republic)

Film Music Friday - May 13, 2022 (The Music of Republic)

This week on Film Music Friday we're hearing the music of Republic Pictures. For more than 30 years, Republic was best known for Westerns, serials and B films emphasizing mystery and action. Many of John Wayne's early films were made at Republic, and the studio even produced a few "A" pictures including John Ford's The Quiet Man and Othello, directed by Orson Welles. We'll hear music created for some of the studio's Three Mesquiteers westerns, plus serials like The Fighting Devil Dogs and King of the Royal Mounted, as well as features Sands of Iwo Jima, Johnny Guitar and The Eternal Sea.
