For Nicholas Ray

A special Lost Sounds and Soundtracks edition in honor of the centennial of Nicholas Ray's birth, extracted from his great maligned 1958 film, Wind Across the Everglades.  It comes from the end of the picture, after Burl Ives has been poisoned, and concludes the film on a mourning, soulful note, as Ives' awareness of the vibrant life of the swamp rises as his life drains away.

 

What you are listening to:

(1) Bird calls and water ripples, the voices of actors Burl Ives and Christopher Plummer; music by Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter.
