It's the Music -- and Little Else
26 April 2011 | by (Joel Kovacik (Brooklyn, New York)) – See all my reviews

THUNDER PASS is a typical, run-of-the-mill Western that certainly won't kill you to watch it.

As a child, I was enchanted -- and still am! -- by the film's captivating march-like theme, played whenever the settlors and cavalry could be seen trudging through the desert to escape from Injuns on the warpath. If you're as sensitively attuned to film score music as I am, you absolutely must get ahold of THUNDER PASS, if, for nothing else, than to hear for yourself these haunting strains.

Unfortunately, the music must have been pilfered from other films, for no mention of the composer(s) is provided; although Edward J. Kay is credited as its musical director.
