This set presents the complete original Alfred Newman soundtrack music to the 1962 epic-western film How the West Was Won, one of the last Òold-fashionedÓ epic movies made by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to enjoy great success. Set between 1839 and 1889, it follows four generations of a family (starting as the Prescotts) as they move ever westward, from western New York state to the Pacific Ocean. The film is divided into sections directed by Henry Hathaway, John Ford, and George Marshall.
The picture was filmed in the curved-screen three-projector Cinerama process and starred Carroll Baker, Lee J. Cobb, Henry Fonda, Carolyn Jones, Karl Malden, Gregory Peck, George Peppard, Robert Preston, Debbie Reynolds, James Stewart, Eli Wallach, John Wayne, and Richard Widmark, with narration by Spencer Tracy.
The score was listed at #25 on AFIÕs 100 Years of Film Scores. In 1997, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress as being deemed Òculturally, historically, or aesthetically significantÓ. The film won three Academy Awards for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay (James R. Webb), Best Film Editing, and Best Sound (Franklin Milton).
