Dragon's Domain Records, presents THE ALBERT GLASSER COLLECTION Volume 3, featuring the premiere releases of Albert Glasser's music for FOUR BOYS AND A GUN and STREET OF SINNERS. The two films in this third collection of 1950s classic Albert Glasser scores from Dragon's Domain Records are essentially juvenile delinquent crime films from 1957, and were released by United Artists. FOUR BOYS AND A GUN is based on a 1944 novel. While the four "boys" - Ollie, Eddie, Johnny, and Stanley - are clearly young grown-ups, the juvenile delinquent genre tag fits the presentation of their characters. These four young friends, needing cash to pay off a bookie after Ollie spent the money impressing a girl instead, decide at Ollie's direction to hold up a boxing arena in order to obtain the necessary cash to pay off the loan. When a cop is killed during the robbery, the four are quickly found and arrested, and the district attorney is brought in to determine which of the four boys fired the fatal shot. He leaves it to the four of them to identify the shooter, or else all four will go to the electric chair. Glasser provides a powerful score using a jazz group of 20 players (4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 5 saxophones, piano, etc.) that perfectly fits the style of the film and the attitude of the period. STREET OF SINNERS is as hard-hitting a story as FOUR BOYS AND A GUN although it focuses on a rookie cop taking over the beat on a particularly unruly downtown street. Unlike his genial predecessor, the young new officer, strictly by-the-book, is unwilling to look the other way and let the young hoodlums hanging out on the street continue to get away with minor crimes. Glasser's score is heavily styled in jazz, but with more of a dramatic punch and a touch of noir intonations than was found in the previous movie. The film's music is music of the street - the wild, brash lifestyle of the hustlers; Glasser's occasional interludes are reserved for specific dramatic or emotional moments.
