Subject: Leadbelly song in 'The Aviator'
From: Cool Beans
Date: 28 Dec 04 - 01:22 PM

If you stay all the way through the final credits of the movie "The Aviator" there's a song by Leadbelly about Howard Hughes and his record-setting flight around the world. I never knew such a song existed but that's definitely Leadbelly singing. He and Alan Lomax are credited as the writers. (I stay for credits.)
Also, playing nightclub singers (and actually singing) in the movie are three Wainwrights: Loudon, Rufus and Martha.
This is not a recommendatation for the movie. I think I'll buy the CD, though.

From an interview by Martin Scorsese, who made the film:"And music. Leadbelly. If you sit through all the credits after The Aviator, at the end we play a song written and performed by Leadbelly: `Get up in the morning, put on your shoes, read about Howard Hughes.'... Leadbelly wrote that."

Apparently Scorsese likes Leadbelly a lot. Maybe he might make a film about him some time...

I just saw the Aviator the other evening and am now sorry I didn't sit through the credits. Didn't Leadbelly also write about the Titanic? He must have had a historic muse.

What really fascinated me in Aviator was the gyrations that one of the night club singers was going through on stage. It was really over the top sort of stuff. Does anyone know if that is based on how singers did things back then ??

That earlier film about Leadbelly really was not good at all. They really ought to've had Huddie himself on the soundtrack. The guitar picker they used was not even close to the man's style, and his unique guitar style was close to two thirds of what he did I've always thought.

Whatever you do, beware his (Leadbelly's) bio. It came out when I was in college, which was 1992 or therabouts. "The Life and Times of Leadbelly". It's insipid and chronologically disjunct. I have it stored away somewhere. I will send it anywhere for free to spare anyone the cost of such crap.

Art, Actually, I think Mike Cooney did some of the guitar work for that film. The problem wasn't so much the direction(Gordon Parks) but the fact that the studio was in the middle of a regime change so the money was cut back for both the production and the publicity.

Any one out there in Mudcat Land familiar with Blind Eric Flatpick's HOWARD HUGHES BLUES?

"If I had a million dollars just like Howard Hughes,
I would have me any woman that I might choose,
I would even buy Chicago just so I could have the blues,
If I had a million dollars just like Howard Hughes."

And remember Jim Croce's line from his "Working in the Car Wash Blues"

Is an undiscovered Howard Hughes.

This was an excellent film. Yes I listened to the music at the end. By the way I downloaded the film free (and illegal ha!) from Loki Torrent just before MPAA closed it down.

I disagree with LuteMonkey. I found "The Life and Legend of Leadbelly," by Charles Wolfe and Kip Lornell, to be quite good.

Wolf and Lornell said that his first name was HUDSON. To me that's outrageous--not to mention silly.

I don't know of any other bio on him. I should actually re-read it. I am always changing my mind upon second glances. I just remeber questionable facts (like Art pointed out) and gratuitous hyperbole. I was younger then...

I once told Michael Cooney that he should've done the music for the film if his amazing version of Leadbelly's "Fannin Street" was any indication of how he might do all of Leadbelly's songs. He said, "No, there is someone who does it much better."------ But I can't remember who he mentioned.

Either way, Mark, it wasn't M.C. doing it in the film. For some reason I think of Dick Rosmini---but I'm probably wrong.

Yeah, its a good song...after the first three or four times! After that it gets real old, real quick. I must say though, it had to be the most interesting music I've ever had the pleasure of listening to while cleaning out theaters.

Daddy (John Henry Faulk) did some scenes for the Leadbelly movie as a southern (Texan?) gov. He was very disappointed in the script/theme/setup of the movie--not the people he worked with. He said it was inaccurate racial propaganda; he said Leadbelly had an interesting life, sometimes horrific, and some of the most interesting, inspiring aspects of his personality were ignored. He was sorry it had happened.   Tw
P.S. Looks like I'm gonna have to see Aviator.
