Trying to ID A 1950S Crazy Violin cue
« on: July 11, 2020, 12:18:56 AM »
Here's one of many cues I've been trying to track down. It's violin piece of music that's heard in this MPO United States Steel Film that was made in 1964 documenting the construction of the New York Unisphere; it can be heard at 6:15 - 6:40 and 11:03 - 12:11.

I have also heard this on a film that was made in 1951.

Also, may as well ask does anyone else recognize any of the other music used in the Unisphere film and know what music library they came?

I've got another idea!
The piece starts at 3:41, Loops at 4:21, and fades out at 4:53. The piece is this beautiful relaxing string section cue. hHis cue is rearranged as the theme to The Donna Reed Show. Who's with me?

That's a track called "Happy Days", by Bill Loose and John Seely, composed for Capitol's Hi-Q library.

These Folkways records licensed some tracks from the UK-based Bosworth library, but I don't think that's where that comes from. It appears they also got tracks from another, US-based (?) library as well. Maybe that's where this comes from.

When I saw that Youtube ID'd the Metropolis cue (and actually that was one I've been interested in), I was thrilled I would finally have a lead to the piece as well as a few other pieces.  Unfortunately I realized through researching Folkways that it wasn't quite the case.  :/
