Gypsy Rose Lee,
The setting is the Civil War and its aftermath. Belle's family has lost their land to Yankees. She marries Confederate guerilla leader Sam Starr and they continue activities against exploiters until she is shot riding to alert Sam to a trap. Highly romanticized and little connection with history. Written by

When Ed Shirley is shot from his horse, he is shown from a distance, but you can still see that instead of being knocked off his horse, he dismounts by lifting his leg up and over the saddle in front of him and then falling to the ground. See more »
My interest is movie music, featured and incidental, especially Westerns and John Ford Westerns in particular.
I noticed that Belle Starr used the same music theme as in Ford's "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance". Apparently, this was also used in "Young Mr Lincoln". As the cues are not identified in films generally, does anyone have any information on the "love theme" used in hes three films? I believe it may have been Alfred Newman, but does anyone know what it was called and whether an orchestrated recoded version is available? Secondly, Ford used the old 19c song "Lorena" in "The Searchers" and "The Horse Soldiers", is this available in recorded instrumental, orchestrated form?
