FIRST MAN INTO SPACE - Buxton Orr - "Theme & Truck Death" (1959)

Scottish Doctor, Teacher, Composer Buxton Orr was responsible for the music on a fair share of cool movies including some titles like "The Haunted Strangler", "Fiend Without A Face", "Dr. Blood's Coffin", and "The Snake Woman."

It's not often you get to see the word 'Amalgamated' on the big screen, or actually almost any place, so bask in it's glory!

Radar Love personified! What a job sitting on this thing all night long!

The soundtrack for "First Man Into Space" is highly orchestrated, but there is this one little scene where the truck driver, portrayed by Roland Brand is saying goodbye to his gal, and there's music coming from his radio. It's 1959, and the sound is swinging. They smooch and part, only for him to uh, let's just say he has an accident!

Truck Death

She really loves Roland, too bad their relationship is about to be over!

This monster doesn't want anything to do with that woman, he only wants the truck!!
