    Default Hollywood Goes to War

    Sponsored Links

    I first heard this piece on the 1984 CBS/Fox VHS video of Tora! Tora! Tora! During the opening advertisement of additional home videos they feature a montage entitled "Hollywood goes to war" focusing on WWII films. The medley plays in the background as several movies are featured and then changes once it gets to Von Ryan's Express and continues on through The Desert Fox and Patton. It has the classical sound with a decidedly upbeat tempo. I believe it might be Jerry Goldsmith, but I'll be darned if I can find it under his posted work. I have heard this before in radio commercials and a couple of TV advertisements (It seems somewhat popular for high octane war/combat themes). I am particularly interested in the piece played between Von Ryan's Express and Patton during the advertisements and would appreciate any help that can be offered. Thank you very much.
