Where Eagles Dare Movie Suite

Where Eagles Dare Suite
Music by Ron Goodwin

Made near the middle of Hollywood's thirty year run with glorious WWII motion pictures, we have a movie suite from a 1968 classic that has all the requisite elements: plenty of percussion, horns, flutes and the corresponding tension builders of repetitious crescendos.  Don't let all that turn you away because this music is filled with a main theme that is presented in unique ways that move the music along at a quick pace that grows on you with multiple samples.  Is it too repetitious? You decide. With a timing of 21:58, this is our first movie suite from Ron Goodwin and it is worth a listen. I hope you enjoy.  -MJ
