He was the greatest legend the Blackfoot ever had… and the white man could never forget.
BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents the original soundtrack to WINTERHAWK, featuring music composed and conducted by Lee Holdridge for the 1975 Western written and directed by Charles B. Pierce (THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK, THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN), starring Michael Dante, Leif Erickson, Denver Pyle, L.Q. Jones, Woody Strode, Elisha Cook, Jr., Sacheen Littlefeather and Dawn Wells.
WINTERHAWK takes place in 1840 and tells the story of a Blackfoot Indian chief who finds himself and his tribe in danger of extinction from a deadly outbreak of smallpox in what would eventually become Montana. His friend, a white trapper named Elkhorn tells him his only option is to make contact with the nearest white settlement and try to trade for the medicine needed to save his people. At this time, though, the only white people in the area are either mountain men or missionaries. His biggest obstacle is the language barrier and he is soon tricked by some of the local mountain men who promise to take him to a doctor but instead ambush Winterhawk in the forest, killing some of his men and stealing his trade goods. In reprisal, Winterhawk takes a young woman and her brother prisoner and begins the journey back to his village. The leaders of the white settlement, including the father of Winterhawk’s prisoner, form a posse and turn to Elkhorn to help them find Winterhawk and settle their differences. As the posse gets closer to his village, Winterhawk must decide whether he will kill the white men for their treachery or set aside his anger and try to trade with them for the medicine his people need to survive.
BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents the world premiere release of WINTERHAWK, containing the score composed by Lee Holdridge and additional music composed for the film by William Goldstein and Nicolas Flagello.
