One of Alfred Newman’s most expansive soundtracks, How The West Was Won earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score, a remarkable outcome considering Newman was not the original choice to provide the film score! That particular honour belongs to Dimitri Tiomkin, but ill-health forced him to withdraw. His loss was to be Alfred Newman’s gain. The score features a variety of musical styles, including some folk music, with Debbie Reynolds singing several show songs and the Ken Darby Singers playing their part in making this one of the most compelling soundtracks.
