Hellgate & Lost Continent cover

Hellgate and Lost Continent [MMM-1972] presents the first film music album by the great Paul Dunlap, who is best known for his horror and sci-fi scores of the 1950s.  Hellgate is a fabulous 1952 Lippert western, with a fine cast that includes Sterling Hayden, Joan Leslie, Ward Bond, and James Arness.  Everyone involved in this film rose to the occasion, and that included the composer, who wrote a powerhouse score capturing the drama and romance of this very moving post-Civil War tale.  About 35 minutes of the soundtrack survived on acetate recordings, and it’s an excellent introduction to Dunlap’s artistry, as it covers a wide range of of the prodigious composer's talents.

As a bonus, we have included the 27 minutes of music that still exists from the classic 1951 Lippert dinosaur picture, Lost Continent.  One of the composer’s best scores, the music offers fury and wonder in this tale of a search for a wayward atomic rocket.  Newly transferred and restored from the composer’s personal recordings, this archival release is a fitting introduction to Dunlap’s incredible musical ability.  The 20-page illustrated liner book details the music, the composer, and the movies.
