It's one thing for Jerry Fielding, one of the most underrated composers of film music in Hollywood history, to have created a score for director Sam Peckinpah's violent 1969 action/western epic THE WILD BUNCH that was based around Old West and ethnic Mexican folk music. It's quite another for him to have created the kind of music required for that same director's 1971 film STRAW DOGS, a radically different kind of film, not only because it was set and filmed outside of North America, in the Cornwall region of England, but because it is, at its center, a horror film about the potential for violence in us all. Once again, however, Fielding pulled off a miracle and delivered the goods, proving that his creative partnership with Peckinpah, who was too often pegged as a wild, out-of-control, macho man, was no accident.

For the main theme, with its modern-sounding brass chorale, Fielding seemed to have taken a page out of one of Igor Stravinsky's most unusual pieces, the orchestral suite known as "L'Histoire Du Soldat", or "A Soldier's Tale." It is a provocative, albeit somber way, of doing things, but it does pull the audience and the listener into the heart of this film's chilling and disturbing subject matter, the violent nature of Man and the xenophobia faced by an American professor (Dustin Hoffman) in an isolated Cornwall village that will climax at the film's end with an explosion of horrifying violence and death.
