American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Davis's music is original at least one theme is strongly reminiscent of a favorite Sousa march. This is actually the composer's second go at this film; the first was a jazz-inspired score written for a nine-piece band. It fits in nicely with marches, romantic interludes, and of course a Big Game to bring the story to its climax.
