Film starring David Keith, directed by Frank Roddam, produced by Herb Jaffe
Howard Blake's note: The film was supposed to be set in the military college The Citadel, S.Carolina, but they were not too keen to be the location, which moved to Sandhurst, England. I was musical director on the film and involved with organizing an American-style marching band at Kneller Hall for which I wrote and recorded band arrangements of 'Dipsy-Doodle' and 'Bonnie Blue Flag'. I collaborated with Lloyd Fonville on 'Carolina keep us faithful' as the school song, and made a setting of Kipling's 'Recessional' for a choir practice. After I had recorded the score Frank Roddam, editor Mike Bradsell and I were summoned to Hollywood and asked by Jeff Katzenberg to make a new ending and a new 'all-American' score.
