    Vote in the Garritan Movie Music Challenge - CHALLENGE #2 "Film Noire"

    It's time to vote for our second Movie Music Challenge!

    There were 3 entries and the participants did a terrific job.

    The choices are:
    For this second challenge the theme is "Film Noire" and the premise of this round:
    Not long ago a film student found tucked away in his grandmother's attic a copy of a movie from 1949. It had never been released; consequently it had no music written for it. When he watched the film he found it to have this story:

    The setting is Los Angeles in the years following world War II. Robert Mitchum plays a former private detective who underwent an accident so traumatic he has become a recluse in a big house in the hills. He has turned his back on humanity. Veronica Lake is a woman with a mysterious past whose father (Walter Huston) has been missing; and now she must try to find him. Her search leads to Robert Mitchum's house where he reluctantly allows her to stay. Meanwhile, a gangland though-guy (Jack Palance) whose amorous affections for Veronica Lake blind him to the fact that she can't stand him, follows her to Mitchum's house. He and his pal (Elisha Cooke, Jr.) end up in a fight with Mitchum just at the point when Lake has softened Mitchum's heart. Mitchum kills the hoods, and the police arrive to arrest him and take him downtown to charge him with murder. Things look bleak after that. The End.
    Many thanks to wrayer for setting this upr Thanks again to Sean for hosting the entries. And a big thanks to those who participated in this round.

    This is a "one-vote-per-person" poll. We'll keep the voting open for about two weeks.

    Have fun and good luck!

    WOW!

    These are fantastic clips. When does the movie come out. I think you will have to update who the leading character portrayers will be.

    All 3 of these definitely fit the script. My congratulations to you all. Now I have to go and listen to these some more before I make my decision.

    Bravo, Bravo

    The most surprising thing to my ear is the structural similarities between the three pieces!

    Wow. That's crazy. I just composed a film noir-sounding piece, and I didn't even see that this contest was going on. Crazy....
