Chaplin's "The Pilgrim" - Could Use a New Score

Recommended Posts

Most of it's OK, but there's a couple of jarring spots. Not crazy about Chaplin's own "I'm Bound for Texas" song and the frantic scoring from around the 16-18 minute mark. But I guess this is the official soundtrack.

I love the score to THE PILGRIM. All of it having been composed by Chaplin. With some memorable melodies. I think it's among his best scores. However, I agree that the singing and lyrics to BOUND FOR TEXAS I could do without. This was part of THE CHAPLIN REVUE compilation in the 50's. There are still some scenes missing over my old Playhouse Video VHS from the 80's. But this new Janus films transfer was probably the most complete I have seen on TCM.

I'm with Gagman66. The score is perfect as is. Chaplin's song is as charming as he. It reminds me of being in the desert. Call me old fashioned but I don't think it should change.
