Video Moods

I just found this out, that there was a company called Video Moods.

Video Moods Cues, 1960-1961 and undated
Written for Video Moods, Inc. (A.K.A. Emil Ascher, Inc.), a stock film music company, under the pseudonym of Ward Sills

Does anyone have any more information?

Re: Video Moods

Something tells me that finding a copy of Conroy BMLP 004 is going to be a snap, compared to finding anything from Video Moods.

Re: Video Moods

I just found EA albums 1007, 1034, 1044, 1046, and 1076 on eBay!

I also found BMLP 004. Thanks, guys.   (cheerful)

Re: Video Moods

I have a small number of Video Moods 78s (probably in single figures!) - I'll add them to the list if I can remember where they are!

Re: Video Moods

ClassicThemes.com has a lot of history on Video Moods (though sadly not a discography). Emil Ascher died in 1922, so if his name shows up on any of these as a composer, it would have itself been a pseudonym - for Everett Ascher, Morton Ascher (father of Everett, son of Emil), or some other work-for-hire ghost composer(s). Frequent Valentino/Major contributor George S. Chase may have been one of these uncredited writers.

Re: Video Moods

I recall Paul Mandell mentioning in his Plan 9 stock music article that "Franz Mahl" is a pesu. for George Chase.

Re: Video Moods

Do any of these Video Moods lists reveal any of the 1966 Marvel Superhero music cues?
