Re: [ARSCLIST] Warsaw Concerto / STINSON SLP 38 / SCHWANN Catalog

I've never seen the film, but I'm aware that many prints were cut ,
especially for televised showings.. The piece could easily have been
used in it's entirety as intermission , entre act, exit or walk in
music. Most if not all television prints are missing these segments .   

 I could see the studio recording the entire piece of music to make
mixing and interpolation in the picture more easily accomplished. It
would have fit on a single 1000' roll of film. 
 Reproduction through a sound reader with a sound gate and without a
rotary stabliser would account for the flutter. I doubt very much that a
commercial studio recording would have been OK'd for issue with the
flutter element.

In fact it does what it has to do in that context and does it very
well. Too bad

I've seen Dangerous Moonlight only once, and the Warsaw Concerto wasn't
heard in
its entirety. Is it, or did I see an edited print? If it isn't played
then a finished print couldn't have provided the source for the
Columbia 78.

Stinson 38.)
