Title of March Played in 1909 Segment?


The Cavalcade soundtrack listing seems to include everything but the name of the march played when the camera is panning over the portraits in the sand in 1909. Does anyone know what it's called?

This one might not even have a name. I think it might have been FOX "Stock Music". I know that it was used in at least two of the Warner Oland CHARLIE CHAN movies. The first was CHARLIE CHAN AT THE CIRCUS (as Circus music) and the second, CHARLIE CHAN AT THE OLYMPICS, (behind the main credits) I'll see if I can find out any more.

I did a cross check of the musicians who worked on the Charlie Chan films I mentioned, and none of them appeared to have any connection to CAVALCADE. I then cross checked the musicians who worked on CAVALCADE: no connection to Charlie Chan.

It's probably a brief scrap of music with an anonymous pedigree. A cheerful march that floated from an Academy Award winning Best Picture, to a breezy CHARLIE CHAN Mystery.

I hereby christen it "Faces of 1909 March"!
